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. Jul 9 - 2:58 PM

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."
