Clemson sophomore defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is one of the most massive (6-foot-5, 340-pound) yet agile players in college football. He is a rare breed of defensive player that will be in high demand when he moves onto the professional level in a few years.

"Mark it down now. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft is gonna be (#Clemson DT) Dexter Lawrence," an NFL coach told CFB insider Bruce Feldman recently.

As a freshman in 2016 starting 11 games, Lawrence led the Clemson defensive line with 78 tackles and had seven sacks, tied for the most by a Clemson freshman. He was named freshman All-American from ESPN and USA Today while also being honored as the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year this past season.

In the latest National Championship game against Alabama, he finished the game with four tackles. He helped the Clemson's defensive unit allow just 17 points and 307.9 yards per game.
