Ravens selected Nebraska OT Alex Lewis with the No. 130 overall pick in the 2016 draft.
Lewis (6'6/312) spent two years at Nebraska after transferring from Colorado, making 26 starts at left tackle and earning second-team All-Big Ten from the conference's coaches as a senior. Lewis has long arms (34") with a left tackle frame, but his best NFL position will be right tackle due to slow-ish feet. Lewis' likeliest NFL projection is a swing tackle with some potential to grow into a lower-end starter. Apr 30 - 1:45 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that Nebraska T Alex Lewis has legitimate potential to be drafted on Friday.

Per Pauline, teams "love" Lewis' upside and began to swoon during the Shrine Game. "I'm told it's a situation where Lewis may end up playing guard as a rookie," Pauline noted, "as he develops his game and physically matures before being kicked out to tackle." A Day 2 pick might surprise NFL Media's Lance Zierlein, who tabbed Lewis as a fifth or sixth-round selection earlier in the process.

An NFL scout who spoke with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said that Nebraska T Alex Lewis has "character concerns [which are] legitimate."

When Lewis began his collegiate career, he was a left tackle for Colorado. He transferred to Nebraska after being charged with two counts of aggravated assault for his role in a drunken fight in 2013. He would spend a month in jail after pleading down to a misdemeanor. With the Cornhuskers, he started 26 games. "The character concerns are legitimate. At times they bleed onto the field with dumb penalties," one scout told the Journal Sentinel. Another evaluator was more forgiving in saying, "He is a physical dude. He had an issue and I think he's over it. He's worthwhile." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein projects the 6-foot-6, 312-pounder as a potential fifth or sixth-round selection.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Nebraska T Alex Lewis held post-workout meetings with the Bears and Browns on the Cornhusker's pro day on Friday.

During the combine week, Pauline cited Lewis as a potential workout sleeper. The 6-foot-6, 297-pounder recorded a time of 5.22 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 27 reps on the bench press, a 7.94-second rumble through the three-cone drill and an 8-foot-3 mark on the broad jump. Those latter two marks fell slightly short of what Pauline had been told was possible. As for his pro future, the analyst hears that NFL squads might look to shift him inside to guard to allow him to acclimate to the pros before potentially pushing him back out to tackle once he's gotten his feet wet.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline says Nebraska T Alex Lewis is the "sleeper on the testing sheets for the offensive line group" and reports that NFL clubs are considering moving Lewis inside to guard to begin with while grooming him to eventually return to tackle.

"I'm told he could put up some surprising numbers including a vertical jump at or near 35 inches, a broad jump over nine feet and a three-cone time around 7.3 seconds," Pauline wrote. "Lewis is expecting questions surrounding his arrest then subsequent departure from Colorado in 2013 after a fight in which an Air Force cadet was left unconscious." The 6-foot-6, 297-pounder has the frame and athleticism for the outside, but his overall game isn't ready for tackle duty in the NFL just yet. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Lewis "has an adequate frame for the position with long arms and natural knee bend, keeping his feet moving and underneath him at all times."

Nebraska T Alex Lewis will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-6, 297-pounder transferred to Nebraska from Colorado in 2013. He sat out a year and then started the next two. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Lewis "has an adequate frame for the position with long arms and natural knee bend, keeping his feet moving and underneath him at all times."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that if Nebraska redshirt senior OT Alex Lewis "can get stronger and develop his blocking awareness," he "has enough in his toolbox to fight for playing time as a NFL rookie."

Lewis originally started his college career at Colorado, but due to an off-field incident Lewis transferred to Nebraska, forcing him to sit out the season in 2013. The 6-foot-6, 297-pound excelled in his first season as a starter for the Cornhuskers. Lewis earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors and academic All-Big Ten honors in 2014. Brugler notes that Lewis "has an adequate frame for the position with long arms and natural knee bend, keeping his feet moving and underneath him at all times.

Nebraska redshirt senior OT Alex Lewis "could develop into an early NFL draft pick" if he shows improvement in 2015, writes the Big Ten Network's Sean Merriman.

Merriman pegs Lewis as the conference's No. 19 NFL prospect. Lewis transferred to Nebraska from Colorado after the 2013 season. The 6-foot-6, 290-pounder's father, Bill Lewis, played seven NFL seasons with the Raiders, Cardinals and Patriots and was an All-America center under Huskers coach Tom Osborne.

Nebraska redshirt junior OL Alex Lewis was sentenced to 45 days in jail and two years probation for a fight last spring in Colorado.

The skirmish rendered an Air Force cadet unconscious. Because Lewis pleaded guilty as part of a deal to third-degree assault charges in December, a handful of other charges were dropped. Lewis transferred to Nebraska from Colorado last May and has two years of eligibility remaining. "It scares me to know I had an impact on someone else’s life," Lewis told the Lincoln Journal Star. "Hard to come to terms with the fact that I had a problem, but I did get help. ... Off the field I’ve grown exponentially as a man."

Former Colorado redshirt sophomore OL Alex Lewis will transfer to Nebraska.

"It’s been a dream of mine to play where my father played," Lewis said. "I finally get to do that." He started 12 games for the Buffaloes at left guard last season but will need to sit out 2013 due to transfer rules. Lewis will have two years of eligibility remaining.
