Much like the backup guard/center combo, undrafted free agent offensive tackles get little love beyond a scant mention here or there. But now that the Lions have dropped their first unofficial depth chart, you can bet there will be more written about the man holding the backup left tackle spot.
I would like to caution against looking into that depth chart too deeply. You'll notice Montell Owens, the guy coming off a knee injury, is currently holding down the top fullback spot over both Jed Collins and Chad Abram.
That seems an unlikely scenario considering when MLive's Justin Rogers dropped his camp notes early this week, he only mentioned Collins and Abram in terms of first- and second-team reps. The depth-chart snub feels like a motivational ploy to give two young guys a kick in the tuchus.
It should be noted that other than Rogers mentioning that Abram "looks intimidating in pads" in that same piece, there hasn't been much to glean about the fullbacks.
As for the bigger boys up front, plenty has been made about the right tackle, but it appears Lucas is holding his own on the other side.
There have been mentions of his performance in individual drills in the above-linked Rogers' article, as well as confirmation of his success against veteran Darryl Tapp.
These guys have a real chance at sticking on the active roster; so (literally) let the games begin.
