Lucas touts prototypical length for an offensive tackle.
He has very good length overall. He has 34-inch arms and easily keeps pass rushers at bay. His ability to get depth in his set, redirect laterally, and his very good length make him very difficult to speed rush on the edge.
Lucas' experience in an Air Raid system lends itself well to his pass protection.
He displays smooth footwork and fluidity in his pass set. He is a sufficient-level reactive athlete when it comes to redirecting on a defender’s move. He displays good patience and is extremely hard to speed rush.
His agility testing and functional mobility is strong.
Although he’s not a great athlete with elite movement skills, he redirects laterally very well. He displays fluidity in his pass set but sometimes clicks his heels and gets his footwork out of wack.
Abraham Lucas is a sufficiently reactive athlete with regards to lateral agility when redirecting in his pass set. In the passing game, he displays good body control in his set. He has very good range and length on the perimeter, and as a result, he is difficult to speed rush. He has very good latch strength in his hands. For a bigger guy, he doesn’t anchor as well as he should nor does he play the game with the brute strength and power his bigger frame suggests. In the run game, he shows a physically tough temperament and can generate some vertical movement. He is athletic enough to get to the second level and uses his length and competitiveness to engage. In the NFL, he could certainly ascend to become a starter at right tackle in some schemes.
Ideal Role: Right tackle
Scheme Fit: Power blocking scheme may serve him well, but he can play in any scheme
