Overview

Lewis has been an extremely effective quarterback for Duke over the past four years and has done a good job of maintaining a quality touchdown-to-interception ratio. He understands the offensive scheme and is a good game manager, but his arm strength is marginal and his accuracy, especially on the deep throws, can be erratic at best. He is athletic and can extend the pocket and does a good job of squaring his shoulders to make the throw when on the move. He does a good job of protecting the football and does not force many throws. He will struggle when he needs to add some zip on his throws to squeeze the ball through small windows but has enough going for him to make you think he could catch on as a backup at the next level.

Analysis

Strengths

Makes solid pre-snap reads and shows the ability to go through progressions. Will check down and make plays when the primary target is covered. Has enough arm strength to put some zip on the ball. Steps up in the pocket and is not afraid to take a hit. Throws well on the run and has deceptive speed.

Weaknesses

Does not have the height to see over the line. Wind-up delivery makes him prone to batted balls and interceptions. Holds on to the ball for too long and takes his lumps. Lacks consistent accuracy and throws behind his receivers too often. Does not always step into his throws losing velocity on deep passes.
