I'm an admittedly big fan of Lucien, having previously stated that I would be willing to spend a 2nd or 3rd round pick on him. He has some of the best hands in the draft and runs a pro style array of routes, including every single route that Brandon LaFell was asked to run last season.
He's still growing as a player, but he collected 659 yards and 6 touchdowns on 35 receptions over his final five games, all against Power 5 opponents with winning records. He runs a 4.49 second 40 yard dash and a 6.93 second three cone while measuring at 6'1, 201 lbs.
The question remains as to where Lucien fits into the roster. I love the Patriots 4th round pick Malcolm Mitchell and I also really like Lucien. I have a hard time seeing both make the team, and I don't think head coach Bill Belichick would hesitate to take Lucien over Mitchell if Lucien deserved it.
New England seriously upgraded the wide receiver position this draft.
