Wayne Lucier

SELECTED BY JACKSONVILLE , ROUND 7, PICK 48, OVERALL PICK 249
OC | (6-3, 301, 5.2) | Colorado
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Name pronounced "Loo-sear." High school football and basketball player who also was a weight man. Went to Northwestern to play for Gary Barnett and later followed him to Colorado. Started once at Northwestern at tight end and six times at offensive guard in 1998. Caught one pass for four yards. Started every game at right guard in '99. Mandatory-transfer redshirt in 2000. Lucier started every game at center in '01. Was an All-Big 12 guard last year and got some All-America notice.

Positives: Very smart, versatile player with a great work ethic and motor. Quick into blocks and gets good fits. Has a feel for blocking angles and positioning his body. Gets the most out of his ability. Good on the second level and gets to linebackers.

Negatives: Lacks great natural size and play strength and will really struggle with size in line, unless he plays low with exceptional leverage. Gets bull-rushed and pushed back too much. Is not overly athletic and will struggle to adjust on the second level at times. Doesn't long-snap.

Summary: An all-out, all-the-time college player who gets the most out of his ability. A true achiever.
