In his college career, Lucas hauled in 240 receptions for 3,250 yards and 32 touchdowns. He was a legit go-to target for Tulsa and Eagles quarterback Dane Evans.
Lucas is a slot receiver who had a lot of success in college. Maybe the Eagles see him as a player who can develop.
Right now, for the rest of training camp, expect a battle between Lucas and the other Eagles UDFA receiver Greg Ward Jr. for the sixth receiver spot on the team.
