No. 23: Isaiah Lewis, S, Michigan State

There are few better safeties in America than Isaiah Lewis, a starter the past two seasons at strong safety for a Michigan State defense that has ranked among the best in the nation over that span. Lewis will be a lynchpin of a strong Spartan secondary that helped MSU rank ninth in the nation in pass defense in 2012 and fourth overall. His specialty: delivering the big hit. The 5-10, 210-pound native of Indianapolis always is around the ball, notching 169 career tackles with 16 passes defended and six interceptions.

View Lewis’ career stats:
2010 stats:
15 tackles; 1 BU
2011 stats:
74 tackles; 2.5 TFL; 4 INT; 3 BU
2012 stats: 80 tackles; 1.5 TFL; 6 PBU; 2 INT
