At the end of the Giants’ game in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, Isaac Yiadom was benched in favor of Ryan Lewis Despite Yiadom’s struggles, Patrick Graham gave him a short leash to start over against the Los Angeles Rams, but it only took a quarter for Lewis to find his way back onto the pitch in Yiadom’s favor

Lewis, who spent part of the 2019 season with Graham in Miami, is a 26-year-old undrafted free mate of Pittsburgh He’s 6ft, 195 pounds, and was picked up by New York after the Washington football team gave him up in early September. Lewis played 18 shots against the 49ers and 42 against the Rams In the Rams game, he was targeted 6 times, dropping 4 receptions for 41 yards

Yiadom’s struggles were evident on the tape, and it gave the offensive coordinators blatant attacking responsibility, as well as Devante Downs when the Giants were in Nickel subsets Lewis is an upgrade; He is a more balanced, faster, more flexible athlete than Yiadom His footwork is solid, as are his hips and transitions There are times in the zone where he is put in a difficult position to cover the outside , and he’s really forced to turn his hips, which we’ve seen twice against the Rams, but the technique he used is trained for the Giants’ type of three deep gazes ran

New York is playing Cover 3 Cloud on the field against Robert Woods (17) Lewis is at the bottom of your screen and takes the move from Cooper Kupp (10) Kupp splits the numbers after his motion and Lewis, whose responsibility is the deep third of the border, lines up directly above and about 6 meters from Kupp It’s the second and the 8 and at the snap Lewis enters his backpedal Cover 3 with his back facing the sideline; this is done in order to channel the routes inside to the middle hook defenders and closed field deep midfielder safety (MOFC) He has to respect Kupp’s speed, so he gives the cushion and basically gives Jared Goff and Kupp an easy throw and catch for a short payoff If Lewis were a little more square and a little more on the outside, it might have lessened the likelihood of completing this easy route When a turn is in the zone, channeling inside routes with their backs to the sidelines, it leaves the outside vulnerable as the corner has to turn its hips and stay tight against the wide receiver, which is not. not easy when you have deep responsibilities The thinking process is to ditch those short wins in order to stop the bigger ones This isn’t a clash against Lewis, but something to watch out for as it has happened twice, in two different types of hedging

I feel like he’s in a better position on this piece, even though Woods is inside the middle line of the numbers, but Lewis is at the top of the road from Woods Lewis bites on the Woods’s subtle indoor plant, then the receiver does a good job of pivoting out and forcing Lewis to flip his hips These are short gains that are hard to stop with this technique This specific cover on the coin shown above is a MOFC man with a six man snap set I would love to see him a little more square with his post snap back pedal in this type of blanket

Lewis is on bail for Cover 3 who was disguised as a two-height pre-snap It’s difficult to defend concepts of fast-paced, three-step and passing play when performing the release technique under bail, and Lewis fell victim to that 6-yard loop by Josh Reynolds (11) Logan Ryan falls to cover the apartment, but the Rams were too quick It’s important to note that Lewis’s primary responsibility is the deep third in the field He must ensure that he is in the best position to carry out this covering missionSo it’s hard to defend these fast passing concepts against the bail technique, especially with his hips pointed towards the goal post when he knocks down.

The Rams decided to line up a lot against the Giants who bring a five-man pressure pack to Jared Goff Graham called a great game and the Giants fell into the area dominating midfield, but watch how Lewis adjusts, several times, throughout this game before and after the Los Angeles snap waves to Woods alongside Lewis at the moment of the snap and Lewis doesn’t miss a beat He quickly flips his hips, senses the path of the wheels, restricts Woods ‘space and kicks him off the red line while still in Woods’ hip pocket and keeping his eyes on quarterback Jared Goff It’s an advantage to play the technique that’s been maligned in the previous three clips Lewis looks down at Goff and watches the quarterback’s eyes go over to Reynolds’ deep cross Then Lewis leaves Woods road, in a controlled and balanced manner , and explodes across the field towards Reynolds The throw may have been intentionally knocked down by Goff Lewis looks quick, balanced, athletic and in position throughout the performance

This is another great example of zone technique with a five-man pressure set The Giants loved bringing the nickel blitz with Darnay Holmes against Jared Goff Lewis gives up a reception on a quick post / curl route, but Lewis is well positioned to execute his mission He’s on the outside and above the receiver, and he directs the receiver towards Tae Crowder, who is in the middle hook area near the hash The Giants linebackers appear to be instructed turn to the strength of the offensive formation as they gain depth in their drop zone; this game is a 3×1 set, so Crowder and Martinez both look to the force that is the side of the field.This is one of the many reasons Graham and the Giants were able to control the midfield In this play, Lewis tries to channel the receiver to Crowder, but the post / curl was the perfect route for the receiver to sit between Lewis and Crowder’s covers This is another bang bang game for minimal payoff, but it was not a glaring Lewis error

Lewis does a good job in an open midfielder (MOFO) Cover 2 defense against San Francisco The 49ers are in a third and a 9 and the design of the game is aimed at high-low Lewis who is flat defender Lewis does a great job of knocking out the honeypot and forcing quarterback Nick Mullens to go somewhere else with football Lewis is aware of the running back in the dish, but he reads the stack exit route He feels the rounded break and the outside stop and sinks to a depth where it forces Mullens to feel uncomfortable pulling the trigger on this throw, which appeared to be his second read (looked at the tight end seam, but Blake Martinez covered this well) It’s a good understanding of space and threat; he could easily have relied on the deep half-safety to make an impossible play and cover the pitch below, but he didn’t; he sank past the sticks and knocked out two lanes Too bad Mullens found another receiver for the first try

Here’s a look at the communication and change blankets the Giants pitted against the Rams It’s a 3×2 set with three defenders on the border, and Lewis, Logan Ryan and Lorenzo Carter fall on the cover We can see the communication from Ryan to Lewis to give up and take the deep lane in this zone game, three deep, type of defense The Giants bring 4 rushes, Ryan takes the flat and Lewis goes to the sewing route This game works because communication and because as the giants play at MOFC This seam turns into a deep safety, so Lewis can rock and take outside leverage against the seam, while Tyler Higbee runs to the deep safety There was a quick window for Goff to throw that ball (with Julian Love focusing on court, not strength), but the movement and area elements match, as well as the pre-snap assumption Ryan was going to take. the vertical of No 2 or not 3 threw it, so he checked the ball at Woods

Here is Lewis in men’s cover playing some really good trail technique against the Rams It’s third and 10 and the Rams are tight The Giants bring in five men and are in cover 1, where the turns usually line up with spin outside lever There is only one high security to Adrian Colbert (34), who is on the pitch Logan Ryan is the other security who falls down midfield and watches running back Ryan protect the midfield as Martinez picks up Malcolm Brown (34) Lewis is at the top of the screen and makes contact with the receiver rod; it straddles the outside shoulder covering the receiver man, goes to the outside hip and basically follows the route of the receivers for him This is a great track technique inside the split line with some help from safety It would take an incredible shot for the Rams to complete this pass over Lewis

Here’s a similar rep against the 49ers A single high-security assist, but look how patient he is on the edge of the fray; he does not allow a clean release and he forces the receiver inside.Once the receiver attempts to stack up and turn around on the outside, Lewis turns his hips, puts his head around him and fails to allow receiver to break phase with him These representatives of men’s cover are Lewis Solid

Above are two hard nosed tackle clips One being on special teams which is always valuable and important

Lewis is an upgrade from Yiadom, but he still has a lot to prove.His athletic ability, reactionary quickness, apparent football intelligence, physicality, and male covering skills are solid though he is intriguing, his real test will be this week in Dallas The Cowboys have a trio of receivers who are all very good in Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup Lewis should see a lot of Gallup, who is a very good receiver on a stacked Kellen attack Moore can see Lewis and target him frequently due to his inexperience and the presence of James Bradberry on the other end of the pitch Sunday will be a big day for Lewis, who will be placed in several difficult positions by Dallas. If he takes up the challenge, the Giants may have found a solution to the second cornerback for the rest of 2020
