Overview

Highly recruited three-sport athlete (football, basketball, track) out of Missouri. Saw very limited action in 10 games in 2010, catching three balls for 23 yards (2.3-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Played all 13 games in '11, starting three at the "X" receiver, and tallied 23-414-5 (18.0). Led Tigers receivers in '12 when he started 6-of-12 games and caught 46-509-3 (11.1), though he was demoted in favor of Bud Sasser the second half of the season. Started all 14 games at the "Y" receiver in '13, snagging 58-692-3 (11.9).

Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding size and body length. Has good hands. Tough to enter traffic and catch on contact. Will do dirty work between the hashes. Has H-back potential.

Weaknesses

Shows only one gear and struggles to pop out of breaks or separate with quickness. Long strider with build-up speed. Is not strong or creative after the catch and is easily corralled.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

A lean, long-limbed, rare-sized, possession receiver, Lucas lacks starter-quality positional traits and does not play big, yet, with continued development, offers intrigue to teams as a developmental H-back.
