4Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-4, 262
40 Time:
4.90

BIOGRAPHY: Posted career numbers of 43/6/1 as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Junior totals included 30/5/2 when he started two games.

POSITIVES: Lucas has shown steady progress the past two seasons, yet he lacks the true size/speed numbers to be anything other than a backup at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Slow locating the ball. Controlled at the point by a single blocker. Marginally productive in college.

ANALYSIS: Athletic defensive lineman who flashes the ability to make big-time plays. Bends his knees, plays with good pad level and fires off the snap. Quickly changes direction, chases the action hard, and shows ability in backside pursuit. Displays above- average strength, rarely off his feet, and effectively fights with his hands.

PROJECTION: FA
