Seahawks draft pick Damien Lewis shows off freakish physical ability

Damien Lewis is an absolute beast. 

The powerful guard out of LSU spent the past two seasons blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and was an anchor on the country's No. 1 offensive line en route to winning a college football championship in 2019. 
Lewis was picked No. 69 overall by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2020 NFL Draft. He'll be the 19th offensive lineman on the Seahawks' roster, and he'll need to standout to make an impression. 

That shouldn't be a problem for the 6-foot-2, 327-pounder, who can bench press nearly 500 pounds and squat 635 pounds in the weight room. 

Don't believe us? See it for yourself…

But how many pushups can he do without rest? "Eighty," Lewis said. 

Lewis is a freak of nature. 

The 23-year-old will compete for playing time with veterans D.J. Fluker and Mike Iupati, who started at right and left guard respectively in 2019. 

But if Pete Carroll has anything to say about it, there's always room to raise the level of competition this offseason.
