Lawrence is a big man at 340 pounds, and he knows how to use it to his advantage. He is strong, shows outstanding effort and has tremendous value as a run defender. Good hands at the point of attack allow him to manipulate his opponent into the right position.
Works best in a 3-4 system as a nose tackle. Expect big things from this kid as he continues to grow into a fine player.
Flexibility is poor, meaning he can struggle to bend around opponents. He struggles on pass rushing defense and explosiveness behind the line. None of these are a problem, he can learn them in the NFL with the right coaching set up.
He was suspended by the NCAA for a failed test to an unknown substance. This was just the NCAA doing their due diligence, its nothing to be concerned about.
Lawrence playing DE gets rid of his man and makes a great sack
Lawrence was a high school phenomenon and was touted to go top 10 once he joined the NFL. He was excellent in his first season as a Tiger but failed to replicate those numbers again. He will be an asset to any NFL team as an almost instant starter. You don’t want to overpay for him. The late second round, early third.
