The Falcons drafted Division II standout defensive tackle Trey Lewis out of Washburn with the first of four sixth round draft choices.
Lewis (6’3″ 318) ran a 5.14 40 at his pro day and benched 225 pounds 21 times. He earned Division II All-American honors as a senior, with 62 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 4 sacks. For his career, he started 34 games, tallying 156 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 2 blocked kicks.
Lewis hopefully will add bulk and size to the middle of the Falcons defensive line, as they are potentially searching for replacements for Grady Jackson at nose tackle.
