Former University of Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis, a prospect in this year’s NFL Draft, was recently charged with misdemeanor domestic violence .

Per MLive.com, Lewis is accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend early Wednesday morning in Ann Arbor. The report says no date for his arraignment is set.

Lewis participated in the NFL Scouting Combine last month, though the NFL has started to keep players with criminal charges in their backgrounds out of the event. Lewis will have questions to answer about the incident for NFL teams over the next month, and it is possible that the incident could affect his draft status.

Lewis was a two-time All-Big Ten player and an All-American last season.

  1. After the first four posts not one mention of being Cowboy or Bengal bound for this guy.
    Come on posters, you need to pick up your game!

  2. He’ll still be selected somewhere in the 2-3 round but I’m thinking 3rd with this new report. The bottom line is the better player you are the more you are allowed to get away with. I read this morning that there is an outside chance that Joe Mixon goes in round 1.

    Let’s not forget the Seahawks drafted the other guy from Michigan with a domestic assault charge in his past. He’d fit in there too.
