Lewis is undersized and doesn’t have exceptional speed, so it remains to be seen what his role in the NFL will be, but he posted exceptional results at times, piling up 1799 yards as a Pitt freshman in 2009.
Pinkston is a terrific pick for the Browns in the fifth round – he might well have gone earlier. He will probably be a right tackle or guard in the NFL. His lack of a clear position might have caused him to drop in the draft a bit, but he has a good chance at contributing, regardless.
Pinkston was the second Pitt player drafted by the Browns, who also took DE Jabaal Sheard in the second round. For Pittsburgh sports fans, then, these two players will change from heroes to villains.
