2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CARL LAWSON: Auburn, 6016 261 4.74. Junior entry and two-year starter from Alpharetta, GA. First-team All-SEC in 2016 after playing a full season for the first time in his career. Well-developed frame with easy flexibility. Consistently plays under the pads of the blocker. Does a nice job of getting his hands on with extended elbows and a low base. Excellent ability to turn the edge while moving at his top speed. Shows a developed, consistent arm-under pass rush move. Light feet. Can alter his path to the quarterback at the last second. Adjusts well to what the blocker is trying to do with him. High effort player. Engine is always on. High on-field IQ. Can read the offense and put himself in position. Solid assignment-player who will stick with his role. Can be controlled by power blockers. Undersized. Has a hard time getting off blocks when he is initially beat. Doesn’t impact the run game. Can be pushed around. Won’t hold his position and has a hard time sticking to his gap assignment. Does not have the secondary burst in space. Lacks the extra gear. Dealt with two serious lower body injuries, one to his knee and one to his hip. Specialty package defender who excels at rushing the edge with his initial burst and ability to turn. Lawson shows a couple of developed rush moves and now that he isn’t dealing with knee/hip injuries, can concentrate on getting stronger and more powerful. His best fit will be as a 3-4 outside linebacker as a specialist. 2016 stats: 30 T, 13.5 TFL, 9 sacks, 24 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.82, right 2.04. OSR:20/51. Second/third round.
