Lewis Cine Draft Profile
There’s nothing like it in football when a hard-nosed safety times the snap count and blasts through a gap to deliver a bone-crunching hit. Few players in the 2022 NFL Draft class are as equipped to do so as Lewis Cine. The Haitian-born prospect seeks to punish offensive ball-carriers on each and every down. Cine delivers the kind of hits that can rally an entire defense. Of course, playing the position of safety also requires adequate pass coverage skills. Cine displayed a keen awareness and oftentimes beat receivers to the catch point in college. He is also more than capable of switching assignments mid-play when operating in a zone scheme.
While Cine does a lot of things well in pass coverage, this area of his game stands to improve the most at the next level. His backpedal in coverage is not smooth. He occasionally tangles himself up due to a lack of fluidity in his lower body mechanics. Another concern regarding Cine is his mediocre size. Some feel that he will need to gain more mass and strength to be an effective tackler at the NFL level.
