Another notable player that excels in pass protection is Washington’s Abraham Lucas. Unlike Raimann, Lucas will be better suited as a tackle at the next level; perhaps the Jaguars could develop him behind Robinson on the left side. Or maybe move him over to the right side. Regardless, if Lucas is available, the Jaguars can’t let a talent such as him, slip them by.
He too has excellent instincts and is a natural at tackle. Lucas can hold his own against much faster pass rushers and can anticipate them. Simply put, his on-field awareness is remarkable with his high football IQ, as he can not only recognize pass rush plays, but he also neutralizes them.
Lucas’s technique is fundamentally sound as he has noteworthy hand movement. He latches on to incoming defenders and stops them in their tracks but more importantly, he does it without drawing a penalty. A polished pass blocker with remarkable quickness as he gets out of his stance quickly which he follows up by putting down smaller edge rushers.
If the Jaguars want a physical force with tons of upside as a potential starting tackle, Lucas is their guy.
