Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 61%/3330/20/8 through the air. Junior numbers included 62%/2171/15/6.
Positives: Athletic passer who displays the ability to make plays with his arm and legs. Patient in the pocket, stand against the rush to get the throw away and has an over-the-top release. Drives the ball downfield, displays speed on all his passes and loses nothing throwing on the move. Elusive, and buys time for receivers. Powers the ball through the tight spots.
Negatives: Must improve his accuracy and pass placement. Overshoots receivers and often times high of the mark. Does not always find the safety and puts the ball into coverage. Really does not sense pressure or show good pocket awareness.
Analysis: Lewis is an undersized college passer with a big-time NFL arm. He has the physical skills to a Wildcat type of quarterback, yet he is unlikely to develop into anything other than a second signal caller in the NFL.
