Mickey Plyler on Lawrence: If Clemson fans liked Christian Wilkins, they are gonna love Lawrence. Actually they are two different types of players even though that are both five star defensive tackles. Lawrence is that massive rock that can lock down the interior. He will command double teams from day one. This is a rare athlete that moves like a 290-pounder in a 330-pound frame. The combination of Wilkins and Lawrence will drive opponents crazy.

Reminds Plyler of: Chester McGlockton
