This article focuses on the rugby football team Carolina Panthers' player Ken Lucas. Lucas has a rare combination of size and speed that allows him to match up aggressively against big receivers. He sometimes bites too quickly on first moves but has outstanding recovery speed. He is the shutdown corner coach John Fox never had and always wanted. Because of Lucas' sticky coverage and strong tackling, safeties Mike Minter and Marion McCree have more freedom to make plays. Lucas already has stepped up impressively. Now he can't afford to do anything but his best.
