Two players to highlight today from the Patriots' second organized team activity: First-year CB Ryan Lewis (University of Pittsburgh) and rookie Keion Crossen (seventh-round pick, Western Carolina). Lewis, who spent last year on the practice squad, took quality repetitions opposite starter Stephon Gilmore and showed up with some ball disruption, while Crossen had the play of the day, showing off his 40-inch vertical leap by going up to intercept a Brian Hoyer pass intended for running back James White in the back right-hand corner of the end zone. Crossen showed excellent technique on the play, turning back to the ball and catching it at its high point.
