Consensus pick on the NFL Draft Board:
There is no consensus pick for Jourdan Lewis on the NFL Draft Board to go to any NFL team. His only appearance on the NFL Draft Board is on the Sports Illustrated NFL mock draft, going to the Green Bay Packers, with pick #29.
Consensus ranking on the NFL Draft Board by Position:
Jourdan Lewis is the ninth cornerback to appear on the NFL Draft Board behind Adoree’ Jackson and Desmond King. Unless there is a sudden push for cornerbacks in the NFL it is hard to imagine Jourdan Lewis being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. Teez Tabor is the only other cornerback that shows up on the NFL Draft Board going to the Green Bay Packers at pick #29. If Teez Tabor is drafted earlier in round one, and the Packers are set on drafting a cornerback in the first round at pick #29, Lewis has a chance to get drafted in the first round.
- “Undersized” cornerback in a class full of 6’+ cornerbacks
- Benefitted from playing on the same defense as a host of other first round draft talent, Chris Wormley, Taco Charlton, and fellow defensive back Jabrill Peppers
- Was out of a couple games in 2016 due to injuries.
- Excellent cover guy, but may have problems with larger NFL receivers
- Larger NFL receivers might be able to manhandle Lewis in the run game
- Has an occasional pass interference
- Technically sound
- Not afraid to stick his nose in it, in run support
- Would match up well in slot against a smaller receiver a la Danny Amendola
