Put another name on your radar for the Green Bay Packers in the late stages of the 2019 NFL Draft or in undrafted free agency afterwards. The Packers reportedly are hosting cornerback Donnie Lewis, Jr. on an official pre-draft visit on Wednesday according to Rotoworld’s Josh Norris. Lewis played his college football at Tulane, suiting up for 46 games in four seasons.

Lewis was a four-year starter for the Green Wave, starting nine games as a redshirt freshman in 2015 and maintaining his spot through his senior year. He had multiple interceptions in each of his last three seasons, including three each in 2017 and 2018, and also recorded double-digit pass breakups as both a junior and a senior.

However, Lewis has been unable to work out this offseason to show off for the draft, as he suffered a fracture in his foot during Shrine Game practices back in January. As a result, he has drawn interest from several teams; the Packers visit makes at least eight teams that have spoken to him privately or brought him in for visits in the past month.

This makes Lewis the 11th confirmed visitor out of of the Packers’ 30-visit allotment. The team has three more confirmed visits from Wisconsin players that do not count towards that number.
