He was drafted from UCLA as the 28th pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He was UCLA's only tight end to win the John Mackey Award for the best tight end in college football when he won in 2005. He graduated from Long Beach Polytechnic High School where he was teammates with Winston Justice, Darnell Bing, Manuel Wright, and Hershel Dennis, all who chose to attend rival USC.

Professional career

Lewis was selected by the Jaguars with the 28th pick in the 2006 NFL draft. He played college ball with Maurice Jones-Drew at UCLA who was also selected on the first day. Lewis has not lived up to expectations yet in terms of pass catching ability with 91 receptions through three seasons. However, he has impressed coaches with his blocking ability. He was used as a blocker a lot in the 2008 NFL season due in part to an injured offensive line. Marcedes Lewis has been active in his hometown community of Long Beach, California.[2]
