Scouting Report

First of all, Lewis is massive at 6’7” and 320 lbs. He fits the mold of bigger-bodied offensive linemen that Fleck and offensive line coach Brian Callahan have recruited, like Daniel Faalele and Curtis Dunlap. But even with his size, Lewis moves well. He is quick out of his stance and can get out in space, capable of changing direction without lumbering. Lewis also possesses natural strength, but his technique needs work. Consistency is key, and he will need to continue working on keeping his pad level low and finishing blocks.
