year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

Travis Lewis scouting report

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

Wt: 246

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.
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.
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.
