Pos: 
Full-time starter the past two seasons who posted a career-best 65 receptions for 877 yards last year. Nice-sized receiver with an inconsistent game. Comes back to the quarterback to make himself an available target, extends his hands and works to make the reception away from his frame. Gets vertical in a crowd and comes away with the contested grab. Effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Uses the sidelines well.
Neg: 
Loses focus and concentration and drops too many catchable throws. One-speed receiver who lacks a deep burst. Seems to give up on routes at times.
Analysis: 
Lodge offers next-level size and has flashed ability but has shown too much inconsistency the past two seasons to be anything other than a late-round choice. He comes with an upside, but Lodge must step up his game in camp this summer.
