    Age when drafted: 22

    Hometown: Scottsdale, AZ

    Position: LT

    Collegiate Number: 77

    Games Viewed: 2012 – Alabama, Notre Dame, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, South Carolina

    BACKGROUND:

    Taylor Lewan played three high school seasons at Cactus Shadows before transferring to AZ powerhouse Chaparral High School for his senior season. Lewan was a four-star prospect by all recruiting services and earned a bid to play in the Under Armour All-American game.

    After redshirting in 2009, Lewan would make nine starts in 2010 as a redshirt freshman. Despite some issues with mental errors (false starts and personal foul penalties) Lewan’s ceiling was on display early in this career. 2011 was Lewan’s breakout season as he consistently rated as Michigan’s top offensive lineman and went on to earn 2nd team All-Big Ten honors. As a junior, Lewan took steps forward into being an elite tackle prospect and many thought he would enter the 2013 NFL Draft to challenge Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel to be one of the first OL off the board. Lewan opted to stay at UM for his senior season.

    This spring, I got an up close and personal look at Lewan and walked away impressed. During my three days at Michigan, Lewan was routinely found getting extra work after practice. Two of the days, the offense ‘lost’ and were required extra conditioning time – Lewan finished first or near first in the lineman group during the conditioning and continued to work after practice was finished. Also noted was Lewan’s leadership with the OL and the team in general.

    Lewan’s dad, Dave, was an offensive lineman for the University of Minnesota.

    SIZE/ ATHLETICISM:

    Lewan is all of 6-foot-7 and near 310 pounds. Lewan’s strength is the best part of his game as he uses his large wingspan, strong hands, and powerful base to keep defenders at bay. Lewan’s struggles come with his ability to move laterally. He struggles getting the edge against speed rushers. I found him to be a good ‘mover’ going forward and really excelled getting to the second level and hitting in space.

    WHAT HE DOES WELL:

    Would you agree he would of been the third tackle chosen in this years draft? He teased us for a while with hints at the draft in 2013.

    he could've been the first tackle just as easy as the third.

    Your correct about his draft position, he was ranked behind Fisher and Joeckel before he declared he was staying in school, I was just providing perspective to his talent level.
