"The Bills would have to be comfortable with his ability to convert to the right side," McShay writes of Lewan, "but if they are, Lewan is a great value at this spot and would help stabilize the offensive line."
Kiper concurred with McShay's assessment that Lewan is a left tackle first, writing: "Lewan has ideal length to play left tackle, but can come in and play on the right side, where he'll protect EJ Manuel and add a nasty streak as a run-blocker."
Over the past couple of weeks, Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin (who was Mike Mayock's mock draft pick for the Bills) has been more firmly linked to the Bills as a Top 10 possibility. Martin was one of the Bills' pre-draft visitors, while Lewan was not - the Bills have hosted their first-round pick on a pre-draft visit in at least each of the last four years - and Martin's consistency and versatility might be more valued by a team with a former offensive lineman (Doug Marrone) serving as its head coach. There are off-field concerns following Lewan, as well.
It's no certainty that Lewan will be available when the Bills pick, either; there has been a lot of buzz over the past couple of days that he could wind up in Atlanta at No. 6 overall.
