Ravens take Nebraska OT Alex Lewis in 4th round

The Ravens used their third 4th-round pick on Alex Lewis, a 6-foot-6, 312-pounder from Nebraska.

The Ravens used the third of their five fourth-round picks to add additional depth to their offensive line.

With the 130th overall selection, the Ravens picked Nebraska offensive guard/tackle Alex Lewis. After transferring from Colorado, Lewis started all 26 games over the past two seasons for Nebraska.

 He was a second-team All-Big 10 team selection last season.

 Lewis played left tackle the past two seasons for Nebraska. However, he also has experience playing left guard and right tackle.

The Ravens, who used their first-round pick on Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, were looking to add more young talent to their offensive line. Veteran left tackle Eugene Monroe’s future with the team remains tenuous and starting right tackle Rick Wagner will be a free agent following the 2016 season.

The Ravens also lost starting guard Kelechi Osemele, who signed a big free-agent deal with the Oakland Raiders.

There are some off-the-field concerns about Lewis. In 2014, he was sentenced to 45 days in jail and two years of probation after he plead guilty for misdemeanor assault for taking part in a fight that left an Air Force cadet unconscious.
