The lowdown on Lewis
Q: Growing up in Sacramento, were you much of a 49ers fan? Lewis: I've never been a 49ers fan. My favorite team is the Indianapolis Colts. Ever since I was young I liked their colors and it just grew on me and ended up being my favorite team. (That)has definitely changed now. I just am excited to get the opportunity to play so close to home. You know, so my family can come to the games, and friends as well. It's a blessing. Q: What kind of attributes do you bring to the team? Lewis: I think one of the best things that I bring to the table, unlike a lot of safeties that got drafted is my ability to play special teams. I don't know how familiar you are with it, but just growing up I always liked to play special teams. I had nine punt blocks in my career and that is just something I love to do. Q: With Zack Bronson, last year's starting safety, likely to be cut after June 1, where do you think you fit into the lineup here Lewis: I don't know. I really don't know too much right now. I am unfamiliar with the depth chart and unfamiliar with who is up there right now. I just want to go in and be put in a better position with the opportunity to play early in my career. Q: You were a star running back in high school. When did you get moved to safety? Lewis: I got recruited by Oregon as an athlete and they weren't sure if they were going to use me as a wide receiver or as a safety, but when it was all said and done I ended up playing safety and I wouldn't change that for the world. Q: What improvements do you need to make in your game? Lewis: I just want to be a better cover safety. I want to work on my one-on-one technique. I am sure with the coaches that I am going to have at the next level I am going to be able to do that." Q: Would you describe yourself as a cover player, a hitter or an all-around safety? Lewis: I am just a guy that tries to be solid at everything. I really just can't pinpoint one thing. I just try to be more of an all-around player.
