The Seattle Seahawks have selected Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas with the No. 72 pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. The decorated Pac-12 linemen from Wazzu has now found his professional home where he’ll help with pass and run blocking.

Scouting Report

The 6’7, 317-pound big man from Everett, WA, made an impact in all five of his seasons at Washington State. He earned All Pac-12 honors all five of his seasons with the Cougars and was named a freshman All-American by the Associated Press in 2018.

He showed off some of his nimbleness during the NFL Scouting Combine in February, running a 4.92-second 40-yard dash during the event.

How can Lucas impact the Seahawks in 2022?

NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein labeled Lucas as a backup prospect that could potentially develop into a starter if put into the right situation. He has a lot of core strength but will need to work on several aspects like limiting false start penalties.
