Cover 1 Take: Rotational Edge rusher with balance of run defense and pass rush contributions. Would be good combo with developmental draft pick as DE’s 3/4.

Summary: A versatile and physical defender with active feet and hands. He demonstrates the ability to excel in various alignments, often bumping down into a 4i position in odd fronts with success against both the run and pass. Lewis plays with a high motor and effort, maintaining leverage on the ball regardless of his alignment. His quick lateral step is a valuable asset in run stunts and blitzes, while he also displays sneaky speed-to-power pass rush moves. Although his first step as a pass rusher is average, Lewis generates power from the ground to compress the pocket and consistently get quarterbacks off of their spots. He is a tenacious and relentless power rusher who excels in blowing up protections and occupying multiple blockers by playing with “I’m here to fuck shit up” attitude. With his physicality and versatility, Lewis is a valuable chess piece in exotic defensive looks and pressures, making him a disruptive force on the field.

Signature Skill/Trait: Determination
