Pick Analysis: The Bucs need to groom a replacement for Ronde Barber, and Myron Lewis appears to be an ideal candidate. As an instinctive cover man with outstanding position versatility, he could play a variety of roles in the Bucs' sub-package.

Overview

Lewis has been the Commodores' most productive coverage defender over the past three seasons. He is an excellent combination of size, strength and athleticism for the position. He is a physical player that is a solid perimeter run support player. He is also good at jamming receivers off the line of scrimmage. Lewis leverages the ball well with good instincts to react to route progressions. Lewis doesn’t have great pure speed but can transition downhill out of his peddle. He lacks great recovery quickness and lateral agility in space and is best suited for a rolled up corner or could possible move inside to the safety position. Lewis is an intriguing prospect that doesn’t possess elite talent but could contribute in a variety of ways.


Strengths

Lewis is a corner who possesses a great blend of size, strength and quickness and is more comfortable close to the line of scrimmage in coverage and run support. Displays good instincts and toughness. He’s a competitive defender with good ball skills, and coupled with his height, excels at winning jump balls. He been a very productive player throughout his career in the SEC.

Weaknesses

Lewis isn’t a very fluid defensive back. Doesn’t match up well mirroring quicker receivers in man coverage. Struggles with his pad level and flipping his hips. Does not possess better than adequate lateral agility and burst, making him susceptible to the deep ball.
