With that in mind, plus the need for depth in the secondary, Sun Devils coach Todd Graham is exploring the possibility of moving Lewis to the other side of the ball.
The safety and cornerback starters are set for now, as is the nickel corner position. Lewis could be the third offensive player on the team to move to defense in light of injuries to other defensive backs on the depth chart.
Here's what Graham had to say in SB Nation Arizona's Sun Devils blog, House of Sparky:
"I think Deantre can still do the things he is doing on the offense. We have a whole arsenal of guys there. Deantre is a team guy and came to me and said if you need me to help you, I'll help you, so we are going to look and try and see if he can help us there, if not in-depth than in a certain package or a way like that."
Stay tuned to see how this experiment goes.
