A middle-school quarterback and receiver Lewis has been always been above average athlete. His quarterback ability is something that was scene at Penn State after he threw a few touchdown passes during spring scrimmage. Son of a pastor, Lewis is not going to worry any potential team with off the field issues. A very grounded young man and team oriented.
Lewis eventually threw a touchdown pass to teammate DaeSean Hamilton (2015) for the Nittany Lions. So the Wildcat trickery is possible in addition to the receiving skill set he brings to the position.
Lewis possesses sure hands and catches the ball naturally. He has shown the ability to high-jump the ball at the point of attack. That leaping ability was backed up with Pro Day vertical of 38.5 inches and a broad jump 10’09”. Physical receiver who is not afraid to extend plays with routes over the middle of the field.
Lewis has a good combination of size and ability which warrants a look late in the NFL Draft. Should surely be a priority free agent and challenge for a job as a possession receiver in camp.
