No. 90: Patrick Lewis, No. 61, Texas A&M, Center



Strengths

The big senior is a prototype at the center position. At 6'2" and 306 pounds, he is agile enough to snap the ball and get into his blocks with ease. Lewis cut his teeth as a true freshman playing the guard position and was able to be an honorable mention All-Big 12 player on the field.

After a second solid season at guard, Lewis made the jump over to center, and the 2011 season was a success, as he was again an honorable mention Big 12 performer.

He is agile, quick and opens up running lanes quite well—Texas A&M's solid rushing attack is a testament to his abilities. Lewis is also a quality pass-blocker, and that speaks to his ability to snap and get his base to take on the opposition.



Weaknesses

While many will look at the new system being brought in by head coach Kevin Sumlin as a hurdle, the fact is, Lewis is likely going to make a smooth transition.

The true issue for the senior is going to be handling the improved opposition. He is trading out the "defense optional" play of the Big 12 for the "defensive line is our hallmark" play of the SEC. Handling the likes of Alabama, LSU and Florida up front will be no easy task.

That ability to adapt will be tested and could prove to be his biggest setback.



2012 Predictions

The SEC has names like Barrett Jones, T.J. Johnson and Travis Swanson looking to make the All-SEC team this season. Lewis will have to adjust quickly, with a new quarterback, to insert his name into the discussion.

It is going to be an uphill battle for Lewis to get onto the All-SEC team, but the Aggies can get a successful season out of their senior center if he can keep their quarterback upright, make the right calls on the offensive line and help open up the gate for stud tailback Christine Michael.

UDFA C/G Patrick Lewis Texas A&M
HT: 6-1 WT: 311


He's pretty good but he doesn't finish blocks all to well sometimes. If he can finish plays and get stronger he'll be a great asset.


Watch this Alabama tape of him, it's Manziel's tape but he's the Center.

Good to see they're serious about upgrading the C position.

Porforis: Because clearly having bi-weekly distractions in the form of antics and crimes wouldn't hurt the team
yooperfan: together. He is a waste of oxygen
yooperfan: Manziel is a very disturbed young man who is looking down the barrel of a prison sentence not too far down the road unless he gets his act t
TheKanataThrilla: He's better than what we currently have backing up AR.
Smokey: A backup what, bartender ?
TheKanataThrilla: Looks like Manziel is getting cut. I'd be interested in him as a back-up.
Zero2Cool: Dunno.
Smokey: WILL WE HAVE A SB "CHAT", Zero2Cool ?
Mucky Tundra: I wonder if Stat Padford will follow Johnson to the retirement center?
uffda udfa: Winston Moss has a better all time win % than MM at 1000%. Let's make this permanent. :)
uffda udfa: We should take note and realize our Jordy might not be Jordy at 31 this season.
uffda udfa: I think Detroit has a way of doing that to players.
Zero2Cool: Calvin is retiring at age 30, just like the great Barry Sanders.
uffda udfa: He'd be 31 just like Jordy but his body is done.
uffda udfa: Sources: Calvin Johnson told Lions he's retiring.

Smokey: Prize ?
Mucky Tundra: Oh! I thought for a minute it got lost in the mail
Zero2Cool: Your prize. I feel bad. It's just been so chaotic with personal life and work stuff and my girls. I need to clone myself! lol
Mucky Tundra: No problem Zero! (Psst, what are we talking about?)
uffda udfa: We aren't going to go 19-0 for 4 straight seasons with this regime! I fully believe there's one that could get us closer.
Zero2Cool: Mucky, I haven't forgot. Just been really busy. Hopefully this weekend.
Mucky Tundra: Only four undefeated seasons? Such low standards!
Zero2Cool: .. or in SOME folks eyes ... go 19 - 0 four seasons in a row, nothing less is acceptable with potential HOF QB at helm. :massiveEyeRoll:
nerdmann: To become a truly GREAT coach, Mike needs to learn how to put other teams away.
uffda udfa: MM has always been secondary to my concerns as to what's wrong in Green Bay. Now, it appears he's speaking out just like guys like Dakota a
uffda udfa: Yup.. George Seifert and Barry Switzer won SB's. Do you honestly think MM is a great head coach? No need to cite any stats...just your op
