Lukas Van Ness NFL Draft Profile 2023
Lukas Van Ness
Weight: 272 lbs
College: Iowa Hawkeyes
Lukas Van Ness is a versatile defensive lineman. While most outlets label him as an EDGE, he spent a third of his snaps as a 3-Technique last season for the Hawkeyes. Van Ness is an exceptional power rusher who generated 46 pressures last season. His bull rush is one of the best in this class. While Van Ness excelled as a pass rusher, he also defended the run well, proving he can be an every-down player for just about any defensive system in the NFL.
Due to Iowa’s philosophy of starting and playing older players, Van Ness was never a full-time starter. However, this was an Iowa problem and not a Luka Van Ness issue. He also relies too much on his bull rush. Van Ness will need to add more moves at the next level.
