Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-AAC honors in 2016 after leading the conference with 15 touchdown receptions, catching 81 balls for 1,180 yards. Started four games as a junior before tearing his patella tendon and missing the rest of the season but still caught 26 passes for 409 yards and five touchdowns. Led the AAC with 11 touchdown catches in 2014 and finished second with 101 receptions and 1,219 receiving yards. Made 32 receptions for 442 yards and one score and started five games as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Productive college receiver who also offers possibilities returning punts. Displays terrific focus and concentration, competes to come away with the tough catch and snatches the ball from the air. Fluid releasing off the line, quickly gets into pass routes and stays low on exit. Nicely makes the reception in stride on crossing patterns, adjusts to the errant throw at full speed and makes the over-the-shoulder reception away from his frame. Displays a sense of timing on receptions and grabs the ball away from opponents. Consistent hands-catcher.
Neg: 
Lacks a second gear and deep speed. Loses out in battles. Not a heavy-duty receiver who can take a pounding and hold onto the throw.
Analysis: 
Lucas was a consistent performer at Tulsa, and while he lacks great size and speed numbers he offers enough skill to line up as a fifth receiver and return specialist.
