  • Summary: Lucas spent the last four years as a mainstay of Washington State’s offensive line and evolved into being a quality pro prospect over his four years as starter. After his senior season, Lucas had a decent week at the Senior Bowl and then a quality showing at the NFL Scouting Combine. Entering the next level, Lucas’ pass protection is ahead of his run blocking due to coming from the offense Mike Leach ran with the Cougars.

    In pass protection, Lucas is steady and reliable to block on the edge. He has size, length, and good enough feet to make it tough for edge rushers to get around him. His mass makes it tough to bull rush through him, and he does a nice job of sustaining blocks thanks to his length and strength. Lucas displays solid technique to avoid reaching or bending at the hip and has an ability to mirror, using his feet and size to seal the edge. Lucas, however, does not have the elite speed, feet and athleticism to play left tackle. With his natural pass-blocking skills though, he has starting potential at right tackle for the next level.



    Lucas is currently below average for the NFL with his run blocking. He is not overpowering in the slightest. In college, he got away with using his mass to manipulate and lean on defenders, but that will be much less effective against pro defensive linemen. For the next level, Lucas needs to get stronger or he won’t be a good contributor in the ground game. He will not provide a strong right tackle run blocker, and many teams like to run behind the right side. He also is not a natural puller, as it takes a lot for him to get his mass moving. Lucas needs a lot of improvement to become a forceful run blocker in the NFL, and he may just end up average in the ground game.

    In the 2022 NFL Draft, Lucas looks like he could be a mid-round pick. The third round is probably the highest he could hope to go, and if he slips to Day 3, he should go in the early rounds. If Lucas develops his run blocking, he could become a starting right tackle. He would be a good fit for a pass-happy offense, as that kind of system could let him become a starter earlier.



    Player Comparison: Josh Jones. Lucas reminds me of Jones coming out of Houston. Jones (6-5, 311) and Lucas are similar in size with athleticism and quickness but lack strength and power.
