We have made it to July and SEC Football Media Days are coming soon. 

The University of Alabama looks to return to the College Football Playoff in the fall and win a national championship. Nick Saban has several talented players, but which ones will emerge as the most impactful?

The staff at Touchdown Alabama Magazine will spotlight numerous players for the upcoming season.

After looking at Amari Niblack, Danny Lewis is third in our tight end breakdowns for Alabama.

Danny Lewis Jr.

Classification: Redshirt Freshman

Hometown: New Iberia, La.

Position: Tight End

Size: 6-5/255 pounds

2022 stats: Did not record any statistics in five games

Strengths: Elite size, athleticism, toughness, willing blocker, hands

Weaknesses: Lacks elite speed, needs more playing opportunities

Summary

Danny Lewis made headlines in the 2022 recruiting cycle, showing Brian Kelly that his dancing would not persuade him to remain in Louisiana and choose Louisiana State University as his school.

Lewis, a three-star, selected the University of Alabama. He was a red zone threat at Westgate High School and a hybrid tight end.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder played in five games last year, but he kept his redshirt. Lewis stepped up in Alabama’s spring game, totaling four receptions at Bryant-Denny Stadium. He carries elite size, athleticism, toughness, and hands. Lewis is also a willing blocker, despite not having elite speed. He can become a dangerous red zone target or a security blanket to move the chains.

Tommy Rees had success at Notre Dame with tight ends that had a size advantage. He has it again with Lewis.
