Biography: Three-year starter who led the team in tackles as a senior, posting 84/2/10. Junior totals included career numbers of 85 tackles and four interceptions.
Positives: Small yet fierce safety who works hard in centerfield. Hustles around the field, physical against the run and aggressively puts his shoulders into ball-carriers. Fights hard to defend the pass, taking on big receivers, and wraps up at the point of attack. Remains disciplined with assignments. Helps out on coverage teams.
Negatives: Possesses marginal ball skills, shows a lot of hesitation in his game, and does too much trailing receivers rather than covering them. Marginal burst to the ball.
Analysis: Lewis is an overachiever who plays bigger than his size/speed numbers and has been productive on the field. He's a marginal athlete who lacks the upside yet has shown ability on special teams and could catch on as a dime back at the next level.
