Default What does everyone think of Mercedes Lewis 2nd Round?

With the 1st pick in the Second Round and if he is there which I think he will, what does everyone think about Mercedes Lewis with that pick? Weighing in at 6'-6" 256, he didn't have a wonderful 40's time but was outstanding in everything else. I wouldn't mind seeing him here. Give me your take.

Lets see who gets cut, the FA market will be flodded with players, If we get a good DE in FA then I like Lewis in the 2nd.

Like stated above, only if we trade down and draft Ferguson do I see us taking Lewis in the second, but yeah I want Pope too.

He ran a ~4.8, not a 4.6.

I'd be very interested in him (assuming that Pope is gone at this point) only if we traded down and picked up D'Brick. We need to go OT in round 1 or 2.

He is my #2 rated TE.

I take him in a heartbeat, assuming a few things:

Ko Simpson did not make it to #33
We take D'brick in the first
We don't sign a FA center, and Mangold is there.


If everything fits, I take him. If we don't take D'brick in the first, we must go OT in the second. If Simpson is there at #33, we take him before Lewis. Same with Mangold.

Yes, Mercedes Lewis ran a slow 4.84. We could probably get him in the 3rd round now.

No. I would put money on it that he goes before the third.

Why?

That notion has to be a joke.

Byrd is always injured, lacks top size, struggles to block well, has a lot of injury problems, and is not that much faster.

Lewis is 6'5ish. He can stretch the field and he can block well. He has a frame to add bulk, and improved a lot as a blocker this year. He will have an immediate impact for some team this year.

Byrd will be lucky if he is 2nd string.

I'd say #33 is too early but he will be gone will before #65. Somewhere in the 45-55 range.

TE in the 3rd if we don't pick one up in FA. If we do pick one up then look to the 5th or 6th for a TE.

1st rd anyones guess
2nd rd OL
3rd DE
3rd OL/WR/RB/QB/ (from this point on gets shady due to FA)
4th DB/S
5th TE or DE
6th DE or TE
7th LB

I think Byrd is climbing though, possibly even eclipsing/tying Lewis as TE #3 in the late-1st/early-2nd position though.
