Lewis is a strong player against the run and can hold the edge well despite often giving up 50 pounds to tackles. He has strong arms to shed blocks and is very good defending the run; Lewis can engage, read, shed and move towards the ball with ease and has a burst to get to the ball. He has the speed to run down ball carriers to the outside and is a good striker once he gets to the ball. He is a tireless pass rusher who relies more on will than he does technique. He is active in the box and has some positional versatility.


Lewis can hesitate at times when reacting to the pass and will struggle early working in a zone coverage due to poor recognition and hips. He did not get many opportunities at Oklahoma to cover downfield -- he was tasked more with mauling at the line than he was dropping back. He has decent flexibility but struggles to reset his weight after dropping into the flats, and doesn't have the footwork to gather himself when covering running backs. He is a slow-twitched athlete who could struggle working against more explosive players in the NFL.
