Grading The Baltimore Ravens 2016 Rookie Draft Class
Alex Lewis (OT, Nebraska)
Along with Stanley, the Ravens added more depth to the offensive line with Alex Lewis. The rookie out of Nebraska had some off the field issues, but the front office took a chance on him. At 6’6″ 315, it is hard to pass that up.
At the beginning of the season, Lewis was not expected to take a starting role, but injuries forced him to action. With Wagner and Stanley at tackle, Lewis was plugged into the guard position. He started the first 8 games of the season before suffering a high ankle sprain. The injury caused him to miss the remainder of the season.
When Lewis was healthy, he helped provide solid blocking in the run and pass game. With the possibility of Rick Wagner leaving in free agency, Lewis could start at either the guard or tackle position next season. He was solid addition to the offensive line and will hopefully stay healthy for all 16 games because the Ravens will need him.
