Lions GM Martin Mayhew considers undrafted rookie OT Cornelius Lucas a candidate for a swing role.
"We think he has a chance to be like a LaAdrian Waddle sort of guy," Mayhew said. "We're excited about this kid. He's definitely got a chance to make our team. We’re going to try him at left and right tackle." An All-Big 12 honorable mention as a senior, Lucas has starting-caliber tools and good athleticism for a 6-foot-8, 320 pound tackle. He didn't participate at the Combine due to a foot injury, but is expected to be ready for training camp. Sat, May 17, 2014 02:54:00 PM

Lions signed Kansas State OT Cornelius Lucas.

Lucas (6-foot-7 3/4, 316) was a two-year starter at left tackle for the Wildcats, earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors as a senior from the conference's coaches. Lucas' potential stems almost purely from his size, as he is a mammoth human with 36 3/4-inch arms, and capable of engulfing would-be pass rushers. Lucas must polish his pass-protection technique, but has starting-caliber tools and moves relatively well for his build.
