2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Levi Lewis, QB, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

Levi Lewis, QB, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
University of Louisiana at Lafayette quarterback Levi Lewis became the first quarterback in ULL history to throw for 3000 yards in a single season and he is off to a terrific start in 2020.

Levi Lewis has a little Michael Vick in his game, but I think he maybe a better passer. The lefty from Baton Rouge, Louisiana is having another great season. Last year, Lewis was super impressive as a junior, starting all 14 games and becoming the first quarterback in Ragin’ Cajuns history to throw for 3000 yards.

This year, Lewis is off to a terrific start as well. The 5’10 gunslinger has 52 completions already on the year for 723 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2020 against Iowa State, Georgia State and Georgia Southern.

Lewis biggest knock is his size. The 5110, 190 pound quarterback is a little smaller than most quarterbacks in the NFL, but he has shown he can get the job done. He finished last season with 3,050 yards with 26 passing touchdowns. The impressive thing is he had a 64.3 completion percentage and only four interceptions on the year.

In high school, Lewis won the Warrick Dunn Award and was the All-Metro 5A Offensive MVP. He passed for 2,450 yards and added another 1.577 on the ground as a senior. He finished his Senior year in high school with 40 touchdowns.

Lewis is a competitor and teams are taking fliers on guys who are versatile.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes

Levi Lewis is a little small for the quarterback position in the NFL, but he can make the NFL throws. His athletic ability is intriguing. I would not be shocked if a team took a flier on him because of he can kill you with his feet and his arm. Lewis has poise and confidence, and I would love him on my team. He has Tyrod Taylor and Mike Vick tendencies. I think Lewis is a more polished passer though. I like the kid, I would give him a shot. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
