Cowboys selected Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Lewis (5’10/188) was a 30-game starter in the secondary, graduating as Michigan’s all-time leader in pass breakups (45) and tallying 8.5 career tackles for loss with six interceptions. He earned first-team All-Big Ten as both a junior and senior and was a consensus first-team All-American in 2016. While Lewis’ college production is impressive, he committed 14 penalties the past three years, managed a 4.54 forty with diminutive size, and was charged with domestic violence in March. Lewis offers an ideal slot corner skill set, but sub-par athleticism and off-field issues give him a low floor. Fri, Apr 28, 2017 10:58:00 PM

Pro Football Focus compared Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis to Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr..

"Whether or not Lewis can ever reach the lofty heights that Harris has, the similarities are there," writes the PFF analysis team. "Both were viewed by critics as being undersized, but their play has gone well beyond that. Like Harris, Lewis is excellent at locating the ball and making a play." The Michigan standout likely would have seen late first- or early second-round interest prior to being hit with a misdemeanor domestic violence accusation in mid-March after allegedly getting into a physical argument with his live-in girlfriend. As is, he is now more likely to fall off the board near the end of Day 2 or early on Day 3. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler questioned whether Lewis would be drafted at all immediately after he was hit with the misdemeanor charge, but there have been few indications since that Lewis could go undrafted.

A director of scouting for an NFC team says Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis would be a first-rounder if he were bigger.

If only. "Love everything about the way he plays," the director of scouting said. "He's cocky and tough and doesn't take any (expletive) from anyone. And sub-package teams will love him because he won't kill you against the run." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein likens Lewis' on-field play to Adam Jones' game. "Excels from press and plays with confidence and edge," Zierlein wrote. "Lack of size will scare some teams and could cause him to fall out of the first round, but he has the ability to become a very good slot corner for a man-cover team." In March, Lewis was charged with domestic assault following an argument with his live-in girlfriend. The trial for that misdemeanor was moved to July 24. Lewis seems likely to go either late on Day 2 or early on Day 3, in the Rds. 3-4 range.

Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis' trial on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge will take place on July 24.

Lewis was accused of assaulting his live-in girlfriend in mid-March. He appeared in court last week for a pretrial hearing that initially had the trial set for July 11. That was then pushed back to July 24 on Friday. A settlement conference has also been scheduled for July 20. Lewis' draft stock has understandably taken a hit given his recent legal troubles, as Day 2 is no longer a guarantee. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline sees him off the board early on Day 3 in his Thursday four-round mock, at pick No. 110 to the Jaguars in the fourth round.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline relays that "[m]ost on hand" for Michigan's pro day believed that CB Jourdan Lewis' pending misdemeanor domestic assault charge will "push him into the very late rounds."

Lewis was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault following an argument with his live-in girlfriend earlier this month. He has plead not guilty to that charge and is next set to appear in court on April 12. While Lewis is working his way through legal troubles that are torpedoing his draft stock, he at least showed out well for his pro day work, with Pauline writing that the corner "looked exceptional in position drills and was head and shoulders above everyone else."

According to the police report relating to Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis' misdemeanor domestic assault charge, the corner grabbed his girlfriend by the hair and put his hand around her throat.

Per the police report, the argument that precipitated last Wednesday's charge against Lewis was over bills that he shared with his live-in girlfriend. That argument became physical, with Lewis allegedly grabbing her neck and holding her down for "about three seconds." The report goes on to note that "[w]hen asked if Lewis had grabbed (the woman’s) throat he stated that he may have grabbed it while trying to get her off him but had no intentions to hurt (her). Lewis stated at no time was he trying to assault (her), he was trying to leave." It should be noted that authorities did not note any visible marks on Lewis' girlfriend's neck when they arrived on scene. The corner has plead not guilty to the charge being levied against him and is next scheduled to appear in court on April 12. Whether this charge is enough to push him to Day 3 remains to be seen.

Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge on Thursday.

Lewis is being accused of physically assaulting his girlfriend, with police responding to a distress call early on Wednesday morning. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 12. It remains to be seen how this case impacts his draft stock, but CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that he "will tumble down NFL Draft boards" should these charges hold up.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler wrote that Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis " isn’t guaranteed a spot on draft weekend" following his being hit with a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

Police responded to a call in the early hours of Wednesday morning. That call was made by Lewis' girlfriend, who is alleging a physical confrontation. Brugler believes that "if the charges hold up, Lewis will tumble down draft NFL Draft boards." Michigan's March 24 pro day could prove crucial for Lewis as he tries to cling to a Day 2 selection. We would be surprised if he went undrafted altogether.

Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis faces a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.

Lewis has been accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend. Police were called early on Wednesday morning to respond to the incident. "It wasn't clear to the officers if there was an assault, or who the aggressor was," said Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige. An arraignment hasn't been scheduled yet. Lewis is a projected Day 2 pick. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller pegs him as the No. 73 overall player in the class.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo notes that Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis possesses an innate ability to mirror opposing wideouts.

"While the NFL may be looking for longer corners, they still need defenders capable of matching the shiftier route-running receivers in the league," Palazzolo writes, "and that’s where Lewis fits in." The 5-foot-10, 176-pounder's size (or lack thereof) figures to be a talking point throughout the draft process, but Lewis graded out as PFF's second-best corner in the country in 2015 at 89 and finished just off that with an 84 grade this past season. He could see some interest for the back half of the first round and should be off the board by Round 2.

Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis accepted an invitation to join the Senior Bowl.

Lewis is one of the top corners in the country and displayed great skill on the outside. However, NFL evaluators will be concerned about Lewis' projection, even if he already locked down a number of top receivers, due to his 5-foot-10 and 176-pound frame. Expect him to see some work in the slot in Mobile, Alabama.

ESPN's Todd McShay "would be thrilled" to get Michigan senior CB Jourdan Lewis "on Day 2 of the 2017 draft."

"Lewis is undersized, but I haven't seen a better man-to-man cover corner in college football this season," McShay wrote. Lewis would be a high Rd. 1 lock if he were an inch or two taller. The 5-foot-10, 176-pounder recorded 52 tackles, 3.5 TFL and two interceptions last fall.

Michigan senior CB Jourdan Lewis "looked good" at practice on Tuesday and could make his season debut against Penn State.

Finally, some details are being revealed. Lewis had a muscle strain in his back near the end of preseason camp, along with quad and hamstring strains. Jim Harbaugh was very cagey in the first two games of the season when questioned about Lewis' status. He tends to line up on the outside in man to man coverage. Michigan has allowed a few big plays this season, and Lewis' involvement could cut down on those.

Per ESPN's Dan Murphy, Michigan is "very hopeful" that senior CB Jourdan Lewis (undisclosed) will be able to take the field against Penn State on Saturday.

Lewis is reportedly dealing with multiple minor injuries to his back, hamstring and quad. He did suit up for Saturday's win over Colorado, but the 5-foot-10, 176-pounder did not see the field for that one. Lewis has missed all three of Michigan's games to date due to his various injury concerns. When healthy, he is in the conversation as the best corner in the country. That he at least dressed for Saturday's showdown with the Buffs is a sign that he is likely close to a return.

Michigan senior CB Jourdan Lewis is sidelined for his second straight game, this time against UCF.

Lewis missed last week's opener for "precautionary measures," so now is the time to wonder if the corner's mysterious injury or issue extends beyond "precautionary." Because this is college football, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is not forced to disclose any information regarding the possible injury or suspension. Lewis was viewed as one of the top corners int he country last year.
