NFL Draft 2012: Ronnell Lewis Interviewing With Jets, Chargers, Cowboys

Ronnell Lewis is one of the more popular defensive players linked to the Chiefs in the second or third round of the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft, but thus far the team hasn’t made it onto the list of prominent teams lining him up for interviews. Those nods go to the Cowboys and Jets as well as one rival team of the Chiefs.

“As far as I know of, I’ll be flying to San Diego,” Lewis recently told Walter Cherepinsky. “They’re flying me out. I’m flying out to New York and the Jets here in the next week or so. There are four or five teams right now, and probably more but we don’t have the dates set yet. It’ll be fun to meet with the teams.”

Lewis is versatile to fit in a number of schemes and the Oklahoma linebacker could come off the board earlier if he impresses enough. The National Football Post’s Wes Bunting sees Lewis as exactly the type of player who would make a great difference for the Chiefs at multiple levels.

Bunting writes, "Possesses an impressive physical/athletic skill set, a “plus” motor and a real passion for the game. I don’t think he’s ever going to be a top end pass rusher in the NFL. However, as a 6-8 sack guy long term who can help out on special teams and give you all he has play in and play out, I think he warrants a second round type grade."

Lewis had 60 tackles and 5.5 sacks last year for the Sooners.
