Former Arizona State wide receiver Devin Lucien was selected with the fourth pick in the seventh round Saturday afternoon by the New England Patriots. Lucien was the second Sun Devil selected after Christian Westerman was picked by Cincinnati in the fifth round.

Lucien spent just one season with the Sun Devils after transferring from Pac-12 rival UCLA following the 2014 season. He started 10 games for ASU this past season, catching 66 passes for 1,075 yards and eight touchdowns.

He ended his Sun Devil career on a strong note, notching 534 yards and five touchdowns in his final three games and winning Territorial Cup MVP honors.

Lucien stands and even six feet and has some of the best hands in the draft, dropping just three passes last season according to Pro Football Focus. While he lacks top-end speed, Lucien runs good routes and has a chance to make the Patriots.

With the selection of Lucien, the Sun Devils have now had receivers taken in back-to-back drafts.
