WATCH: Allen Lazard putting in work at the Senior Bowl

Iowa State Cyclones wide receiver Allen Lazard (5) catches a touchdown pass against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the fourth quarter at Jack Trice Stadium. The Cowboys beat the Cyclones 49-42.

Iowa State wide receiver Allen Lazard will wear the Cardinal and Gold one more time this weekend when he plays in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. The Cyclones’ all-time leader in receiving yards and receptions is spending the week in Mobile working out for scouts and media leading up to the game.

Lazard reportedly struggled at times with drops during the first day of practice on Tuesday, but impressed with his measurements, including having the biggest hands of any of the wide receivers.

Lazard also impressed during the 1 v. 1 drills including these two routes that ended in nice catches.

You can watch Lazard’s practices in Mobile all week leading up to the Senior Bowl on Saturday on NFL Network.
