Lewis doesn't really do anything well. He doesn't like to tackle, is terrible in space. His coverage skills are ok.
Hopefully the next regime that comes in puts Berry at FS and ends this bullshit.
We aren't going to have pro bowlers at every position.
In terms of building a team, if we are a good team outside of the free safety position, we will be fine. Lots of terrific teams have had average free safety talent. It is a luxury position. There's a reason why good safeties often fall outside the first round. If it was such a critical position and such a hard one to fill, they'd be top 10 picks.
