Lukas Van Ness 2023 NFL Draft Profile
Lukas Van Ness is one of the great mysteries of the 2023 NFL Draft. He’s a perfect Chinese farmer player. One of the great maybes of the class. Let’s go over the 2023 NFL Draft Profile on the Iowa pass rusher.
This is my thing. Maybe it’s a weird Trey brain thing. I just don’t know how you turned the card in for Lukas Van Ness in the first round when he couldn’t start at Iowa. We’re positive he’s better than Robert Beal? I’m not. I just couldn’t sleep at night if I turned the card in there.
No doubt the tools are intriguing. 6-foot-5, 272, 34-inch arms. He kinda looks like a long lost Watt brother. I’m not discounting the chance that’s a possibility. 4.58 is really good. Moves well. Production is also good when he played.
I worry he’s just not a HIM type guy. Is there anything more than a bull rush. A bull rush that gets you 17 reps on the bench. I can beat that and I’m a blogger typing from home. Did lead the team in sacks. Also started his Iowa career at 240 and is still very raw. I think it’s important to note here that this is a big projection pick. You better get it right and I wish you luck.
I like the hockey background. Maybe the pure athletic traits will be enough for him to figure it out. I’d pick the guy in the third round to be totally honest with you. I don’t know how enough is there to go higher.
