PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Based on his size and skill set as a pass rusher, he may be best suited to play a 4-3 defensive end role in the NFL. His ability to disrupt the quarterback with his quickness and agility off the edge could make him a valuable asset in a scheme that prioritizes a strong pass rush.

SCOUTING REPORT

Lukas Van Ness possesses good size and strength, standing at 6-4 and weighing around 275 pounds. Van Ness is a disruptive force on the defensive line and has shown the ability to get into the backfield and make plays behind the line of scrimmage. He has good quickness off the snap and solid technique, allowing him to shed blocks and make tackles. While he may need to continue to refine his skills and develop more pass-rush moves, Van Ness has the potential to be a solid NFL player.
