New Ravens QB Thaddeus Lewis Scouting Report
Authored by Bryan Trulen
Somewhere David Cutcliffe is smiling. He groomed Lewis at Duke and watched him grow into a pure passer during his time as a Blue Devil. Lewis was just signed to compete with Ryan Mallett for the backup job in Baltimore.
#9 Thaddeus Lewis 6’1″ 220 8th Year, Duke
Thad has spent time with multiple organizations since his entry into the league back in 2010. When given an opportunity to play he has shown the ability to operate comfortably- executing a pro style passing attack & is a competent thrower of the football with plus arm strength. While in College playing for Quarterback guru David Cutcliffe at Duke, Thad was exposed to high level offensive coaching that has enhanced his overall appeal as a quarterback. Thad has demonstrated the ability to throw with accuracy as well as poise while making a variety of types of throws. Chip Kelly brought Thad with him from Philly to San Francisco in 2016 for a reason and Thad would have started games in 2016 had he not gotten injured during pre-season play. It would not surprise us to see Lewis start games for the Ravens at some point this year.
