Final Grade

7.3

Cine is a very tenacious football player. He comes downhill with bad intentions once he reads run or sees the ball hit the receiver in the short passing game. Has outstanding play speed which helps him run all over the field to make plays. Can make plays from the opposite side of the field against the run. Is a very sound tackler in between the tackles, at the line, and in open space. Isn't afraid to ger aggresive whether it be with receivers, taking on blocks, or coming downhill to make a tackle.

Weaknessess

While he has the speed an athleticism to put himself in position, Cine lacks true ball skills. Relies on his strength to break up passes. Won't see him go up and come down with interceptions very often. Also needs to be more consistent when taking on blocks. Does a good job of getting physical at the point of attack but struggles to disengage at times. Can get too caught up in the fight which leads to him getting pushed out of position. Also want to see what he can do as a blitzer as he wasn't asked to do it much in college.

Injury History

Games Evaluated

2021 - Florida, Tennessee, Alabama (National Championship)

Big Picture

Lewis Cine was a highly touted four-star safety out of Trinity Christian High School in Texas that decided to come play for an outstanding defensive football coach in Kirby Smart. He played in all 14 games and made two starts as a true freshman, finishing with 19 tackles, two pass deflections, and one interception. Saw his role increase as a sophomore, becoming a full-time starter. Finished his second season with 52 tackles, one tackle for loss, and three pass deflections. Truly broke out in his third season as a Bulldog as he was a crucial part of the 2021-22 National Championship defense. He started every game and finished the year with 73 tackles, two tackles for loss, nine pass deflections, and one interception. His play helped him earn AP First Team All-SEC and Coaches' Second Team All-SEC honors. It was also good enough for him to declare early and get invited to the 2022 NFL Combine. At the next level, Cine is a safety that I believe is best suited in the box as a strong safety that can be effective in the underneath zone and in run support. However, he has had success as a single high safety and can play it if asked to do so. His speed and tackling ability will also help him to carve out a role on special teams as a rookie. I see him being drafted somewhere in the second round as a player that will definitely be used in the rotation with the ability to earn a starting spot early on. If he goes to the right system and plays to his full potential, Cine can be a very reliable starter in the league for many years to come.

Has very good hip fluidity. Shows the ability to flip his hips in his drops to read receivers. Looks to be very comfortable in underneath situations in zoner coverage but has shown the ability to play deep zone as well. Has adequate speed to turn and run with receivers and tight ends in man coverage. Does a great job of using his speed to recover when being late to make a read on a ball.

Playmaking:

Shows outstanding closing quickness, especially against the run and on screen/short passes. Once he sees the ball, he comes downhill with bad intentions. Lacks true ball skills against the pass. Doesn't show the ability to go up and get the ball and come down with interceptions. Relies more on his speed and strength to shut down receivers. Wasn't asked to blitz a ton in college but I believe he has the attributes to be able to do so at the next level if necessary.

Run Support:

Is very impressive against the run. Has outstanding range with the ability to make plays across the field when the ball is away from him. Shows inconsistency in his pursuit angles at times due to being overly aggressive but puts himself in good position for the most part. Is a very good all around tackler. He comes downhill with tenacity and runs his feet through contact. Does a great job of breaking down in open space to secure the tackle. Isn't afraid to take on blocks and packs a strong punch against them but struggles to shed blocks effectively at times.

Cine is a highly aggressive player. He plays downhill with a very tenacious mentality and doesn't shy away from contact by any means. Lays hits that can jar the ball loose at any given moment. Is a confident football player that seems to trust his reads and react to them. Plays with a high motor when the play is to him but can show some lapses in effort at times when the play is away from him.

Intelligence:

7.27

7.25

Is a great pre-snap communicator in the secondary. Makes sure his teammates are all on the same page. Does a good job of reading plays. If he sees run, he comes downhill quickly. In the passing game, he does a solid job of transitioning his eyes between the receivers and the quarterback. Has shown that he can play both safety spots but that is about it from a position versatility standpoint.
