Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Lewis is another OLB prospect capable of making a contribution as a special teams star. If he can play well enough on kicking units, he could buy enough time to develop into a quality backup.

Overview

Lewis was a four-year starter for the Sooners and the quarterback of their defense. He plays in one of the few true 3-4 schemes in college and has value in that he can do so at the next level. He is a strong tackler, a potential special teams contributor and has fourth-round value.

Analysis

Strengths

Lewis is an athlete and is quick twitched off the snap. He can shed blocks and often has to considering the scheme he plays in, where offensive lines are up to the second level often. He is great in pursuit of outside runs and has the speed to get there. He displays a nice, athletic pass drop where he can flip his hips and set to react to balls and men coming across the middle. An aware, athletic linebacker with high tackle production.

Weaknesses

Travis can diagnose plays late at times, and can struggle when runners are coming directly at him. He tackles well in pursuit from the side but can't set his butt to uncoil his hips and deliver a blow at a runner coming directly at him. He has a good pass set but can't run well with tight ends in man across the field.
