The Cleveland Browns recently held a pre-draft visit with Tulane cornerback Donnie Lewis Jr.
While the Browns continue to cling to the antiquated notion of not confirming these visits, Lewis Jr. took care of the announcement by posting videos on his Instagram account of the club’s field house and locker room, according to Nate Ulrich at The Beacon Journal.
A four-year starter for the Green Wave, Lewis finished his collegiate career with 160 tackles, seven interceptions, 37 passes defended, two fumble recoveries and a half-sack for the Green Wave, according to Eagles Wire.
A second-team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2018, Lewis was versatile enough his senior year to play cornerback, nickelback and safety - all positions that the Browns could use some help with after trading starting safety Jabrill Peppers and allowing nickelback Briean Boddy-Calhoun leave in free agency.

Lewis played in the annual East-West Shrine Game this year, leading to NFL Network’s Chad Reuter to write that:
Lewis is a tough-minded corner who, while lacking great size, is not afraid to mix it up with any receiver. Opposing quarterbacks who looked his way at the start of a play often had to go to their second option because Lewis was in his man’s pocket.
Lewis is projected to be a third-day pick, but given his production he could be a player to keep an eye on.
