2. Allen Lazard
Stacking success is a term we hear very often. One player who is doing just that is Allen Lazard. After catching a touchdown in the game against the Texans, Lazard had a good week of practice leading into the game versus Baltimore.
Then, Lazard came out and had a fantastic game. He finished with three catches for 63 yards and looked like a player worthy of sticking around.
Lazard appeared to run good routes and caught the ball when thrown to him.
Coming into the game, Lazard and Shepherd were making the call on who sticks come cut down day tough. After Thursday’s game, the decision might get even tougher.
Shepherd dropped what would have been a sure first down in the second quarter, but then made up for it catching another touchdown late in the third quarter.
Moore and St. Brown are Brian Gutekunst draft choices, while Lazard and Shepherd were undrafted free agents. But so far in the preseason, Lazard and Shepherd look like the better players.
What it might come down to is what the players offer on special teams.
Lazard can make up for the size Moore and St. Brown have on special teams, though he lacks the speed of St. Brown. But he should have more than enough to be a gunner. Especially if JK Scott continues to punt the way he did in this game.
