Penn State pro day highlights defensive options

Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman was among the Buffalo representatives at the Penn State pro day Thursday, but it wasn’t just QB Christian Hackenberg trying to draw eyeballs in Happy Valley.

The Nittany Lions boast a handful of defensive prospects and while front seven talents like Carl Nassib, Austin Johnson and Anthony Zettel are familiar draft prospects, there’s an interesting late round option.

Safety Jordan Lucas (5-11, 203) had a solid pro day running 4.45 and 4.46 in the 40 with a 38-inch vertical and a 10’10” broad jump. He also had a 6.78 second time in the three cone drill. Projected as a sixth round pick, Lucas is a converted cornerback, who played the last two seasons at safety. An interesting prospect for day three of the draft.
