2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

Ronnell Lewis sometimes suffers from hot and cold production, but when the light turns on, he flashes something special. Lewis made a name for himself making bone-crushing hits. He is absolutely ruthless once he gets his hands on the ball-carrier.

Like most players who play with intensity, he'll need to learn to play better within the system and not always play so aggressively. He possesses good speed and does well to find the right pursuit lane. Besides his tackling, what really sets him apart is his ability to act instinctively in open space. Whether it is tracking a ball carrier or adjusting quickly to the quarterback in the pocket. Lewis forces his opponents to play up to his speed, which can cause turnovers and other mistakes.

Lewis has never been a productive pass rusher in college and lacks the bend to really hit the edge. The potential is certainly there, but he's far from a sure thing. Coaching will be needed to improve his ability to disengage from blockers and improve his bull-rush.
