Strong Points

Had a strong senior season at Michigan and followed that up with a very good performance at the Senior Bowl. He is quicker than fast but plays fast enough. Tough and competitive. Plays bigger than his size. Is quick with a low pedal and smooth turn. No wasted steps when transitioning. Tracks the ball very well. Good hands. Can play man or zone. Aggressive in run support and a good tackler. Can return kicks.

Weak Points

Was charged March 15 with domestic violence after an altercation with his girlfriend. Did not time well at the Combine (4.54). Has a narrow frame with little growth potential. Doesn't play with great top end speed (more quick than fast).

The Way We See It

In the world of the NFL Draft, grades can change in an instant. After a strong season and a very good Senior Bowl, Lewis had an average Combine. Then he gets hit with the domestic violence charge. With his speed and size limitations, I doubt he would ever be as high as a No. 2 corner. More than likely he would be a good No. 3 and play over the slot. Has very good quickness and is a competitive playmaker. Before the criminal charge, he looked like a sure second- to third-round player. Now his draft status is up in the air. As we don't know what will happen with the criminal justice system, his grade is based on talent alone.
