Overview

Only the sixth player in school history to be invited to a college all-star game (Texas vs. the Nation in 2007), Lewis was a model of consistency throughout his Washburn career. He played in every game on the Ichabods' schedule the last four seasons and closed out his career with 31 consecutive starts.

Lewis attended Washburn Rural High School, where he played football for head coach Arron Barnett. He was an All-State Class 6A honorable mention, second-team All-City and first-team All-Centennial League choice for the Junior Blues. He was also named the team's Defensive Most Valuable Player in 2002.

Deciding to stay local, Lewis embarked on his collegiate career at Washburn in 2003. He started three of 11 games at weak-side defensive tackle. He finished the year with 18 tackles (six solos), a sack and two stops behind the line of scrimmage.

In 2004, Lewis started the final eight contests on the team's 12-game schedule. He posted 31 tackles (14 solos) with a sack, three stops for losses and a blocked kick. He recovered and caused one fumble.

Lewis was named All-Mid America Intercollegiate Athletics Association first-team in 2005, adding Football Gazette All-American third-team honors. He started all 12 games, as he recorded 45 tackles (22 solos) with eight stops behind the line of scrimmage, including four sacks. He also caused and recovered a fumble.

As a senior, Lewis earned All-American and All-MIAA first-team honors. He was also named the MIAA'S Defensive Most Valuable Player. Starting all 11 games at weak-side defensive tackle, he ranked third on the team with 62 tackles (26 solos). He registered four sacks, 10 stops for losses and two pressures. He caused a fumble, batted away two passes and blocked one kick.

In 46 games at Washburn, Lewis started 34 contests. He collected 156 tackles (68 solos) with 10 sacks for minus-70 yards and 23 stops for losses totaling 88 yards. He caused three fumbles and recovered two others. He also deflected two passes and blocked a pair of kicks.

Analysis

Positives: Has a thick frame with adequate muscle definition, long arms, thick thighs, calves and ankles and room on his frame to carry at least another 15 pounds of bulk without it affecting his overall quickness … Can physically dominate the action in the trenches, but needs to show better consistency in doing so … Solid competitor who plays with pain and is a leader-by-example type … Has adequate quickness chasing the ball down the line, but can generate a sudden short-area explosion and burst to shock and push back the offensive linemen into the pocket … Shows good lower body strength at the point of attack, but fails to split double teams due to marginal hand usage … In one-on-one situations, he can stack and shed, using his lower body strength to get a good snap off the ball … Has the lateral agility, range and quickness to chase down plays working along the line … A reliable tackler who will get results when he stays low in his pads and uses his arms efficiently to wrap and secure … Shows good desire and functional quickness closing on the quarterback, taking good angles while generating a burst to slip past blocks … Stays low coming out of his stance, but needs to show better hand punch to jolt and disengage from blockers … Maintains position vs. the inside rush, displaying the hip snap and body control to keep his balance while striking … Shows good leverage and pad level on the pass rush and is very effective at pushing the pocket … Has an explosive short burst to flush out the quarterback out of the box.

Negatives: Seems to lose concentration at times … Does not easily diagnose the plays and hesitates before moving when asked to slide across the line to string plays wide … Gets good separation in isolated coverage, but has problems getting bumped out and washed down vs. multiple blocking situations … Knows how to penetrate the backfield, but does more chasing rather that wrapping up the quarterback … Has an imposing frame, but does not always play up to his measurable … Late to react to plays away from him and is better served waiting for the action to come to him … When he gets too tall in his stance or when his hands get outside his frame, blockers have good success knocking him off the line and throwing him to the ground … Does not use his power strikes on the bull rush.

Compares To: JORDAN CARSTENS-Carolina … Both certainly look the part with their thick frames, but the Washburn product's light did not come on upstairs until his senior year. It was not like he had bad performances in previous seasons, but at this low level of competition, he failed to dominate. He has the strength and initial burst to shock and jolt an offensive lineman, but is not instinctive and is late to locate the ball. More often than not, the play is blown dead before he recognizes the action. He is a functional blue-collar type with the athletic ability to make a roster, but will need patient coaching to see if he can develop. If all else fails on defense, with Lewis' lower body thickness he could get a look on the offensive line, much like Carstens when he signed out of college with Carolina (now back on defense).
