08/12/13 - TOP KANSAS STATE PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 1. OT Cornelius Lucas (6-9, 325, 5.39)...Lucas, who committed out of high school to the Wildcats over hometown Tulane, redshirted in 2009 and saw very little playing time as a freshman and sophomore, admittedly because his heart wasn't fully into it. But when the opportunity opened in 2012 to compete for a starting job, the “light finally turned on for him,” according to offensive coordinator Dana Dimel, and he rose to the occasion, earning the left tackle job and starting every game. Lucas earned All-Big 12 First Team honors by the coaches after his junior season and emerged as one of the top linemen in the conference and arguably their most attractive NFL prospect.
He is a large human being with a naturally wide base and an engulfing wingspan to eat up rushers off the snap. Lucas works hard to gain correct positioning and win with angles, staying balanced and patient with good reaction quickness to trust his eyes and quickly adjust. He is much more athletic than most his size, but he still plays tight and needs to show more natural knee bend, struggling with leverage. Lucas also needs to refine his hand use to better land his jabs and control defenders, but he really benefits from his aggressive mean streak. As long as he stays motivated, Lucas is an intriguing NFL prospect and a player who grows on you the more you watch him. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
