Jordan Lucas Picked No. 204 Overall By The Miami Dolphins

It’s official: Jordan Lucas is a Miami Dolphin.

Jordan Lucas came to Penn State as an unheralded recruit, choosing the Nittany Lions over Temple, UMass, and Old Dominion. But to say Lucas surpassed expectations would be an understatement. A three-year starter for Bill O’Brien and James Franklin, Lucas was a leader in the secondary, playing cornerback before moving to safety for his senior season.

Lucas leaves Penn State a two-time All-Big Ten honorable mention selection, totaling 180 tackles and three interceptions in his four seasons. The 6-foot, 199-pound senior was chosen to play in the Senior Bowl and participate in the NFL Combine, but a shoulder injury suffered against Northwestern prevented him from competing in either event. Lucas did workout at Penn State’s Pro Day, posting an impressive 38-inch vertical and a 4.45-second 40-yard dash time.

Good luck to Lucas as he begins his dream as an NFL football player!
