This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.

Ronnell Lewis, Oklahoma
Ht: 6'2, Wt: 244 pounds

Strengths: Lewis is intriguing as a pass rusher because he’s fast and closes on the ball carrier in a hurry. He plays with a lot of power and aggression and is hard to keep blocked. Is patient enough to stay at home in the run game and not allow a cutback lane. High upside.

Weaknesses: Underdeveloped as a pass rusher. Needs to build counter moves before he can consistently be relied on to get after the passer. Mostly inexperienced dropping back into coverage. Didn’t get along with coaches and had academic issues. Will be a developmental player developmental players coaches have to be patient with.
