Pos: 
Somewhat-athletic tight end prospect with big upside. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and fires off the snap. Displays good initial strength at the point of attack, works blocks and plays through the whistle. Moves well about the field, nicely tracks the pass in the air and effectively makes the reception on crossing patterns. Adjusts to the errant throw and extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Shows great flexibility.
Neg: 
Must get stronger and cannot finish blocks. Really doesn't display burst. Struggles to come away with the difficult reception on occasion.
Analysis: 
Lucero is a long, fluid tight end with nice upside potential. He must add bulk to his frame and polish his pass-catching skills, but he has enough ability to eventually line up as the third tight end on a depth chart.
