Jaguars Working Out Lineman
Many of the Jaguars scouts and coaching staff, including assistant head coach Mike Tice, took a six hour plane ride up to visit the scenic Pacific Northwest, one of the most beautiful areas in the country. While they were up there, the team decided to work out University of Oregon lineman Enoka Lucas. Lucas played center at Oregon, and earned all Pac-10 conference honors three times. In addition to Lucas being a standout center, he also has experience at right guard. Lucas is of Hawaiian descent, and if the Jaguars were to write down his name on the card at the end of the month, would feel like he's somewhat at home, being that there are a couple other Hawaiians on the offensive line, Chris Naeole and Vince Manuwai. Lucas stands 6'3", 303 lbs., and is known to be a hard-working type of player. Lucas is a very smart player, who was a true quarterback of the offensive line while at Oregon. The knocks against him are that he's not dominant, and he struggles with his footwork in space. Lucas is projected to be a second-day pick, and most likely a backup, at least early on in his pro career. The Jaguars are obviously looking for some more depth on the offensive line, as center Brad Meester is now on the wrong side of 30 and guard Chris Naeole will be 33 years old before the season is over. The team likes the current set of backups, Dennis Norman, Dan Connolly, and Richard Collier, but those players could obviously become starters on any given play, and there is no such thing as too much depth in this league, as the Jaguars found out in 2006.
