Lewis can certainly hit, and generally wraps up very well, but he might have to move to safety because he's not very smooth in his back-pedal and doesn't have the quick turning hips that teams look for in cornerbacks. His size and speed might still have him go in the middle rounds, but his lateral agility as well as a bit of an injury history, coupled with the other things I mentioned are all things that could hinder his ability to be selected before the 4th round.
If we drafted him, I hope we don't make the same mistake trying him at Corner like we did with Reggie. Just convert him to Safety to begin with and groom him. However, I'd rather not draft a project. Go after Robert Johnson, Nate Allen, Darrell Stuckey or Kam Chancellor (Probably best suited for SS) -- all true safeties.
