was named on Wednesday as one of Athlon Sport's ACC breakout players in 2015.

Lawson has 79 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks in 26 games at Clemson.

Clemson’s defense led the nation by holding opponents to 4.03 yards per play in 2014. The Tigers also limited opposing offenses to 16.7 points per game, recorded 45 sacks and led the nation in third-down defense. Matching those totals in 2015 will be a challenge for coordinator Brent Venables. Of the nine players listed in the trenches on the final 2014 depth chart, six expired their eligibility after the Russell Athletic Bowl. Lawson was listed as the backup to Vic BeasleyVic Beasley
