Bowling Green wide receiver Roger Lewis has announced he’ll enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Lewis put up huge numbers in two seasons at Bowling Green, catching 23 touchdown passes and compiling 2,637 receiving yards in 28 games. He was twice named first team All-MAC and was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award last season.

Lewis, who’s 22, went to prep school in North Carolina after starring at Pickerington North High School near Columbus, Ohio. He had been committed to Ohio State before being charged with two counts of rape, one of which was dismissed and one that ended in a plea deal.

Bowling Green listed Lewis at 6-foot-2, 199.

This year’s underclass entry deadline is Jan. 18.

    In other relevant stats, Lewis is 1 for 2 in rape indictments.

    He’s got Bengals written all over him in suspicious scratch marks.

    Come to Buffalo… Watkins needs some of the heat taken off of him… besides, Tyrod Taylor is going to be a superstar!

    I’m pretty sure rapelisberger would love to have a wingnan to cruise the bars and clubs with.

    I live in Pickerington and remember this case. He was a very good high school player. He was actually acquitted on one count of rape by a jury and the second count was deadlocked (Many thought it was consensual) and the prosecutor decided not to retry him and he accepted a plea deal for falsification in return.

    He’ll make a good fit either in Baltimore, Cincinnati, or Dallas.

    Surprised he didn’t go to Michigan. It seems like that’s where most Pickerington kids go.
