Dion Lewis   #33 RB

Height: 5-8   Weight: 195   Age: 28

Born: 9/27/1990 Albany , NY

College: Pittsburgh

Experience: 7th season

High School: Albany HS [NY];Albany Acad. [NY]; Blair Acad. [Blairstown, NJ]









Draft 2011

Pick No.149

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 18 (149)

Pick Analysis: 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.
