D Newton's take on today's camp praised Marcus Lucas

  • Undrafted rookie wide receiver Marcus Lucas (Missouri) had one of those days when he seemed to catch everything in his direction. With the next two to three receiver spots open after Kelvin Benjamin, Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant, it's not unthinkable that Lucas could slip into the mix. Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King have had moments, but have not been consistent. Tiquan Underwood has the coolest hair in camp, but he hasn't consistently stood out. With Brenton Bersin playing well and Lucas shining in spots, you could see a few surprises on the final roster. Either that or the Panthers will watch the waiver wire for receivers cut by other teams.

     

     

There was also the positive impression that Bell made. Newton wasn't as hard on Kony Ealy, basically saying that Ealy has neither stood out or looked terribly bad.  

 

Good to hear about Lucas. I hope that he keeps it up.  I saw a vid of Marcus Lucas earlier this year, and he looked a little stiff in the hips to me, but his size (especially with KB on the field) is very captivating.  If anyone else has actually paid attention to Lucas, then weigh in.  Lucas looks like he took his chance to shine with KB down.

I've heard he's looked great all camp. I think the Panthers are gonna do their best to hide Lucas and stash him on the PS.

It'll be really interesting to see the depth chart after Benjamin, Cotchery, and Avant.

Every year it is someone.  This year it is Lucase and the Bersin kid.  I wish them both luck and really want anyone with a Panther jersey to succeed.  Hope both of them make an impression and can get a job.

Lucas has freakish size and arm length but apparently he is insanely slow.

Both him and kb run the same 40 times but kb is explosive. This guy is not.

It would be awesome to have three wr with 6'5" height though

83 Marcus Lucas is not terribly slow. He is like a 6'5" version of Ricky Proehl. Lucas is excellent and finding the holes in a zone and slipping behind coverage. When he catches the ball it is at its highest point.

 

Cam is going to love throwing ropes to Kelvin Benjamin and Marcus Lucas at the sideline and corner of the end zone. This is the type of receiver that fits Cam. Cam does not need speed receivers with his game. He just needs the tall ones that can catch at the sideline.

 

Here is a link to a video so you can see. http://youtu.be/pXeClvfkO9E?t=1m2s

I went to the first two practices and he stood out to me too. More than Philly Brown, McNutt, and King. I'd put him right there wit Bersin. But I did not comment because they hadn't put on pads yet. So if he's continuing to impress with contact that goods for him and good for the Panthers.
