|Height & Weight:||6'2 - 227 lbs.|
2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
One interesting facet to Lewis' game is that although he is a very good tackler, he is not physical or active when taking on lineman as a blitzer. He wraps up the ball carrier well and drives through his hips. Lewis takes good pursuit angles and does well to bring his man down quickly and cleanly. When working through the pile, he becomes hesitant and even lowers his head on contact. Rarely slows down his attack in order to disengage from blockers.
Shows good instincts when in open space whether reading his assignment. He performs in zone more consistently than in man. He has nice patience and feels his way through the play in zone. When in man, he is usually too physical and can be lost with a quick change of direction. Currently has very little skills as a pass rusher. Lacks the explosiveness to hit the edge or split the gap between blockers.
Lewis will need to iron out his style of play. He tends to play off his emotions at times which can both be a good and bad thing.
