Pros: Really gets his hands up well if he doesn’t get to the quarterback…plays with a mean streak..pretty good awareness…explosive of the snap…playing the hybrid position at Oklahoma this year…a lot of production this year…uses his hands well…good speed…good closing speed…plays with good leverage…Good awareness…really great functional strength
cons: does not have great size/length, which could hurt at the N.F.L. level…not a full time starter until his final four games in 2010…could develop more pass rush moves…only going to be a 34 OLB at the NFL level…run defense at the N.F.L. level? Could use more work in zone coverage to has the athleticism, but not the technique yet
Round projection: Round 3
Other than Morris Claiborne, perhaps no one has seen such a rise into the first round conversation as Ronnell Lewis. Lewis was an after thought heading into this season but has really played well this year. He hustles and flies to the ball, he plays with good leaverage, and has good athletic ability. He also plays mean and looks like he’ll be one of the most coveted pass rushers in a weaker pass rushing class.
The talk of Lewis has a potential first round pick has subsided completely, but he is still a day two pick. Lewis is a man without a true position which will hurt some, but he’s really strong and should contribute some early.
Shifted to a defensive end/linebacker hybrid position … started the final four games … collected career-high eight tackles at Oklahoma State … followed up that performance with seven tackles vs. Nebraska … returned first career interception 12 yards for a touchdown at Baylor … had sacks vs. Utah State, Nebraska, Cincinnati and UConn … recovered a fumble vs. Utah State.
