“Lawson boasts explosive get-off quickness with natural flexibility to bend the edge and fight through blockers’ jabs.” –Dane Brugler (8/17/15)
Interesting prospect at either 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker- exceptional against the run and effective pass rusher. Gets excellent leverage when taking on blockers, with the ability to control the gaps around him. Great footwork and hand technique when working on the line, and plays with an edge 100% of the time. Shorter arms, athletic, and has a history of injuries.
