Scouting Report: Alex Lewis

An analysis of the former Wisconsin weakside linebacker leading up to the NFL Draft

Name: Alex Lewis School: Wisconsin Year: 4Sr
Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 227 40: 4.5 Pos: OLB

Bio: Two-year starter that posted 89/16.5/9 as a senior after junior totals of 86/11/1.

Pos: Athletic and explosive linebacker best defending in the box. Quick filling gaps up the field, fast to the flanks and goes hard sideline-to-sideline. Sneaks through the small creases, gets to the ball carrier and excellent in pursuit. Tough defender that looks to get involved in the action.

Neg: Gets depth on his pass drops and displays above average range but does not show good ball skills. Not efficient, takes too many steps or incorrect angles to the action.

Analysis: Lewis has done a terrific job in only two years of major college football though his game is still rough around the edges. Could eventually grow into a starting weakside linebacker at the next level if given time to develop.
