Overview

Lewis is a quick, compact running back who can make defenders miss but may lack the pure size and power to become a full-time starter in the NFL. Probably finds a home as a change-of-pace back but still must develop as a receiver and pass blocker in order to be relied upon on third downs. Shows patience and vision behind the line, senses creases and cutback lanes and can shake tacklers in traffic and in space but needs to do a better job of getting vertical at times. Can break arm tackles and is crafty in a crowd. Day 3 prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Lewis possesses great feet and quickness. Makes defenders miss behind the line and in the hole. Displays outstanding elusiveness in the open field. Has enough speed to get the edge. Does a good job setting up his blockers. Breaks some tackles despite lack of size. Durable.

Weaknesses

Lacks power and bulk. Won’t push the pile. Will dance too much in space at times. Quicker than fast and lacks true home run speed for the next level. Puts the football on the ground a little too often. Struggles in pass protection where technique and effort are inconsistent.
