Round 6 (2nd pick)

T Alex Lewis, Nebraska (6’6 | 312 | 5.22) 

Limited athletically but technically sound tackle with clean pass pro technique, good strength, ideal length, and a nasty demeanor that allowed him to be an effective left tackle for two years in the Big Ten. Lewis has the size, aggressiveness, and fundamentals to play in the NFL but has some off-field red flags.

He started his career at Colorado but was arrested for third-degree assault after leaving an Air Force cadet unconscious in a bar brawl. Lewis then ran into some trouble at Nebraska with some controversial tweets and interactions with the fans. His maturity is definitely a question mark.

Lewis’ slow feet are also a concern for some teams. He’s not as athletic as most tackles in this draft, but knows it and adjusts his technique accordingly. Lewis is most likely best off on the right side at the NFL level, but has a chance on the left due to his technique and toughness.

The Bears have starters in place at both tackles in Leno Jr and Massie, but very little depth behind them. A player like Lewis who is versatile enough to be a swing tackle and back up both positions would be a good value this late in the draft. His off-field issues are a concern, but the Bears have had two private workouts with Lewis so they should have a good idea of his character. He was also a team captain for the Huskers which is a trait Pace and Fox are known to value.
