The NFL looks for players who are versatile and Arizona State University cornerback Chase Lucas is a guy that can fill that void for an NFL club. Lucas has everything you want in a cornerback, he has good size, he is tenacious, and he is willing to play special teams. Lucas has tons of value and decided to come back for his senior season and I think it was a great decision.
Lucas redshirted his first season after coming to Arizona State from Chandler High School where he was teammates with N’Keal Harry. Chase participated in the US Army All-American game and was a four start prospect out of high school. He quickly adapted to the Sun Devils defense and became a standout player.
As a redshirt freshman he was named first team ALL-American honors. He was the only freshman in the Pac-12 to be named to an All-American list. He only allowed 40 receptions despite being targeted 78 times. He recorded 59 tackles, 2 interceptions and 8 pass break-ups. Overall, the redshirt freshman balled out.
In 2018, Lucas finished fourth on the team with 62 tackles including six for loss and 2 sacks. He did break up five passes and pick off three passes as well. Quarterbacks struggled to throw against him.
Last season, Chase Lucas balled out! He started all 13 games for the Sun Devils at cornerback and became a three year starter.
The Sundevils finished the season with 72 pass breakups which were the 10th most nationally. Lucas piled up 54 tackles including 4.5 for loss. Chase blocked a kick and added another interception to add to his total.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Chase Lucas is a special player. NFL teams are going to love his versatility. He is a superb special teamer also. His willingness to play special teams could be huge on both coverage as a gunner, and on field goal block. He is versatile in the secondary as well. He has played inside and outside, but primarily outside. He is feisty and does not take much crap from opposing wide outs. The Chandler, Arizona native is 6000 and will be a special player. He has some confidence and I love his ability to close a gap on the field. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
