Browns Are Done Lewis-ing, Take Former Tulane CB Donnie Lewis


The Browns have seemingly made it a point to draft defensive guys in the 2019 NFL Draft. After losing Jamie Collins, Jabril Peppers and Emmanuel Ogbah, this is a great strategy by GM John Dorsey: drafting franchise defensive players. The Browns’ first pick, Greedy Williams, might be the best cornerback in the draft. Sione Takitaki might be one of the best linebackers in the draft.

The Browns know that you can never have too much defense. That is why with their seventh and final pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Browns selected CB Donnie Lewis out of Tulane University. We got Lewis via receiving a seventh-round pick from Jacksonville in return for Cody Kessler.

Lewis adds to an already stacked secondary that includes last year’s fourth overall pick, Denzel Ward, former Buffalo Bill T.J Carrie, former Packer Damarious Randall, Philip Gaines and Eric Murray. Lewis is added in addition to this year’s secondary draft picks: Williams, out of LSU and S Sheldrick Redwine, out of Miami (FL).

At Tulane, Lewis recorded eight interceptions through his four years (did not play freshman year). In his senior season alone, Lewis was second-team All-AAC, as he recorded 56 tackles (2.5 for loss), three interceptions and 18 pass breakups. Lewis was also one of the best cornerbacks in the nation, as his 1.6 passes defended per game ranked him in the top-five nationally (16 PD overall put him fourth in the nation).

Lewis is a guy that can compete immediately from day one. He can make the final roster and learn a thing or two from the young vets on the roster, while also having a chance to show the NFL his skill set during training camp and the preseason.

With their last pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Browns showed the league that they are ready to stop Lewis-ing games.
