Pressure makes diamond, and in the case of Terrell Lewis he is looking to be shining every Sunday for the foreseeable future in the NFL. And according to his recent post to Twitter he’s also looking forward to the opportunity to prove his doubters wrong.
I can’t wait to make the doubters eat their words….

Because of his injury riddled career at the University of Alabama, Lewis has faced criticism for his consistency and durability. In his first two seasons at the Capstone he played a total of four games.
Those final four games came at the end of a playoff run where Alabama won the National Championship in 2017.
It wasn’t until this past year, 2019, where Lewis was able to play double digit games. In his 10 games of action Lewis recorded 31 tackles, 6.0 sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss.
Since his talent is obvious, even in the limited amount of games, Lewis has been projected to be drafted anywhere from the second round to the fourth.
But no matter where he ends up one thing is for certain. He’ll be hungry to show that he is amongst the best players in his draft class.
