Pick Analysis: Although you would think a Baton Rouge native would be a shoo-in to play football in Louisiana, Lewis' home town is in Florida. He redshirted his first year with the Green Wave and then became a starter in Year 2, lining up with the ones for nine of 11 games played (30 tackles, three pass breakups). Lewis started 10 games in 2016, tying for the team lead with nine pass breakups (going along with 39 tackles, two for loss, and two interceptions). American Athletic Conference coaches voted him honorable mention all-conference in 2017, as he was a 12-game starter who intercepted three passes and broke up 11 others on the year (36 tackles, three for loss). Lewis was a second-team All-AAC pick as a senior after starting all 13 games, posting 56 tackles, 2.5 for loss, three interceptions, and 18 pass breakups. He finished in the top five nationally with 1.6 passes defensed per game.
