NFL.com's scouting report of Shaq Lawson
|Sunday, February 21, 2016 12:05 PM- -|
NFL.com has released its prospect review of former Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson and graded him as a 6.21 on their prospect scale. 6-6.49 is categorized as a player that has a chance to become good NFL starter.
"Productive backup for two years before putting together an All-American season in his first year as a full- time starter," NFL.com said. "Lawson is built like a full-grown man and combines his instincts, toughness and power to fill up a stat sheet and set an early tone. Lawson's frame and game are easily translatable to the NFL, but his average athleticism and pass rush skills will likely have teams viewing him as a 3-4 edge setter or a 4-3 base end. Lawson may also have value as 3-4 defensive tackle in an upfield scheme."
Lawson finished the season with 86 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss (led the nation), 12.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries.
