It was reported last Thursday that Lewan will be arraigned on three misdemeanor charges — two charges of assault and battery and one charge of aggravated assault — early next month, stemming from an altercation with Ohio State
fans on Dec. 1. While Lewan claims he was simply breaking up a fight, Mlive.com reported that “it appears (Lewan is) the only who is going to be charged at this time.”
Any team should be wary when it comes to drafting players with troubled pasts, especially during the first round. But for the Dolphins, that sentiment rings true more so than ever. In light of the club’s bullying saga, which led to national outrage, firings and a suspension with potentially more suspensions looming, the Dolphins aren’t exactly in ideal position to take a risk on a prospect like Lewan.
