There were concerns about the offensive upside of Trevor Lewis when he was a college recruit. He was always projected as a 3rd line player.

The problem with the Lewis pick and especially the Teubert picks were they passed over significantly better and more skilled players to draft low ceiling players who Lombardi thought would fill a role.

It's really not an optimal strategy to draft players like that in the first round. But again when you have a GM who values muckers, grinders and grit over all else what do you expect. Who could watch Colten Teubert and think he was a better player than Myers, Karlsson, Carlson, Sbisa and Gardiner.
