Oklahoma vs. BYU
Travis Lewis vs. BYU
2nd 13:39 - very good instincts, sheds block from h-back to make tackle, tough
2nd 12:49 - very fluid and works through trash, outstanding agility, tackles QB on draw
2nd 12:12 - fills hard but gets chipped by fullback
2nd 10:15 - outstanding tackle on 2nd & 1, open field, brings down ballcarrier, great instincts, shows patience and lets
game come to him, nice strength and technique
I don't get the Garrett Sickels pick in the 3rd when your own evaluation of him clearly states that you believe he his a 3-4 OLB in the NFL and a day 3 pick at best. I think Dallas would rather take the risk with Carl Lawson in that spot than give it to a career rotational player at best.
