Travis Lewis scouting report

Travis Lewis OLB Oklahoma #28
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 246

 
Strengths:
Decent overall build. Adequate strength. Very reliable wrap-up tackler; can also deliver some big hits. Does a decent job in zone coverage; very patient, stays in his space and keeps his eye on the quarterback. Strong field awareness in every aspect of the game. A team leader on the field; smart football player who knows where to be and helps put teammates in position as well. Four-year starter.
Weaknesses:
Speed is a definite concern; lacks the straight-line speed to be a sideline-to-sideline defender at the next level. Agility in tight spaces is mediocre at best; not a consistent pass rush threat due to his lack of athleticism/speed/strength. Stiff hips hurt his ability to stick with tight ends in man coverage. Very physical in coverage in an effort to mask his lack of speed; can be an asset, but may lead to penalties if he doesn’t tone it down in the NFL. Missed one game in 2011 with broken toe.
Comments:
Lewis is somewhat limited in terms of his physical tools, but his intangibles and experience should allow him to find a role at the next level. At worst, he should be a solid backup and special teams contributor.
