The Lewis Structure can help you visualize the bonded pairs and the lone pairs so I personally believe it is very helpful to draw it out while using the VSEPR model. I think once you are familiar with the shape of a molecule, you wouldn't need to draw out the Lewis Structure.
Drawing the Lewis structure can help you count up the total lone pairs and the total bonding pairs on a central atom which then correlates to the molecular shape and electron arrangement of a molecule. Remember, however, that you must be able to draw the most correct Lewis structure for this method to work.
