Overview:

Lawson has great size for a 4-3 defensive end, he has good overall speed, and is a dynamic pass rusher. He is also a play maker defensively. He also is a tackling machine, and a sack machine. I also believe he can play as a 3-4 OLB if a 3-4 team drafted him. On the other side he does get stuffed by bigger offensive lineman at times. With that said, Lawson should be a 1st round pick come April 28.
