Pros

Cons

Overall

In only two years at Boise Demarcus Lawrence dominated the Mountain West Conference and led the league in sacks and tackles for loss in his two year career. Though he flew under the radar at Boise, the more and more analysts have been examining Lawrence the higher he's been rising in projections.

Lawrence has proved so productive thanks to his outstanding medley of length and quickness. He uses his long arms to his advantage and the overall smoothness with which Lawrence operates allows him to slip blocks and wreak havoc on opposing backfields.

On the flip side the issue with Lawrence and the reason many view him as a 'tweener' is his lack of ideal bulk and top end strength. He was strong enough to play at the college level, but at only 250 pounds it's questionable as to whether he has the power to consistently battle in the trenches and support the run.

As mentioned Lawrence has quite a few supporters in his camp and nobody would be shocked if he somehow slipped into the back end of round one. Right now I don't see him as a starter, but if he can add about 15 pounds of muscle and maintains his explosiveness that could change.
