The reason we've gotten value for them is because of their issues. Considering many 3rd or later picks never make it. The risk was worth the reward and I don't fault Lewis for trying. Unfortunately with linebackers, Lewis has missed more than he has hit.
That's with any position in the NFL honestly there's always more misses then hits, let's face it. I'll give him credit that we hit a lot more than we have in the past.
