Conference: Mid-Eastern Athletic
40 Time: 5.01
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 53/8.5/1 after 47/17/8 as a junior.
Positives: Quick, explosive defensive lineman best suited to play in a one-gap system or as a three technique tackle. Displays good movement skills, footwork sliding down the line to make plays and always on balance. Quick if asked to twist or stunt, gets off the snap with a nice first step and can bend off the edge then pursues from the back side. Works his hands throughout the action, displays an array of moves getting off blocks and keeps his feet driving up the field. Immediately changes direction and shows the ability to string plays out laterally.
Negatives: Short, lacks bulk and struggles getting off blocks or engulfed by a single opponent. Did not show much improvement in his game as a senior.
Analysis: Lawrence displayed flashes throughout his junior year and was a disruptive force opponents struggled to stop. His build, ability to change direction, and playing style could help him catch on as a backup three-technique lineman.
