Dezmin Lewis, Central Arkansas
Central Arkansas wide receiver Dezmin Lewis is a small school guy, with big time NFL size. At 6’4″ and 219 pounds he is a large target and even showed off some speed with his Pro Day 40 time of 4.46.
Lewis never totaled 1,000 yards receiving, with his top year being his senior campaign where he posted 945 yards on 64 catches. He did add nine touchdowns, and could be a solid red zone target with his size.
He has long arms and is a hands catcher, which is a great thing for a receiver. He is still pretty rough around the edges in terms of his route running, and despite his limited athleticism, there is perhaps something there that could intrigue a team like Houston to take a chance in round four or five on him being able to develop.
