Prospect Profile: Jermelle Lewis
Jermelle Lewis School: Iowa Ht: 5-9 Wt: 220 40: 4.52 Year: 5Sr Bio: Played in seven games as a senior, posting 57/230/1 on the ground. Totaled a career best of 123/709/8 as a sophomore while also averaging 25.7 on 14 kick returns. Suffered a pair of major knee injuries each of the last two seasons. Positives: Undersized yet explosive back whose career has been marred with injury. Patient ball carrier who waits for blocks to develop, displays footwork in a small area and makes defenders miss. Can wiggle off tackles, quickly cuts back against the grain and displays a straight-line burst of speed. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield. Negatives: Easily brought down by the first opponent. Not a ball carrier who can string several moves together in a single hand-off. Analysis: A goodlooking athlete with solid size/speed numbers, Lewis has had major durability problems the past two years. Likely to be medically red flagged and at best a camp invitee.
