Biography: All-Conference selection as a junior when he lined up primarily at defensive end. Totals included 60 tackles/13 tackles for loss/5 sacks with one interception. Started four games as a sophomore playing Oklahoma's hybrid defensive end/linebacker position and finishing with 37/5/3.5.
Positives: Fluid, smooth athlete with a developing game. Plays with good pad level, displays good quickness and is fast off the edge. Quickly changes direction and shows the ability to run down ballcarriers in pursuit. Occasionally stood up over tackle and displayed skill rushing the passer.
Negatives: Must develop more moves and become quicker disengaging from blocks. Average instincts in space.
Analysis: Lewis comes with a large degree of upside. He was impressive last season primarily coming out of a three-point stance rushing the passer, but must develop a complete game and prove he can make plays in space.
