2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SHAQ LAWSON: Clemson, 6025 269 4.68. Junior entry from Central, SC. One year as a fulltime starter. Consensus All-America and first-team All-ACC. Was in a rotation his first two years, but his production was only limited by the fact that he was not in the game. Played 78% of Clemson’s defensive snaps. The explosive pass rusher suffered a knee injury in the Oklahoma playoff game and lined up ready for duty against Alabama in the national championship game. The productive and quick twitch end plays like a linebacker when on his feet. An intense, high effort competitor who has an explosive first step and a sudden spin move. The speedy and quick edge player has lateral, foot, and hand quickness. He fights through double teams and works to finish the play. He literally has the eye of the tiger. He goes after the quarterback like a piranha that just got off a vegetarian diet. Pass rush is all about effort and Lawson gives everything he has. When he locks out he plays with control and violence. He disengages quickly and doesn’t stay blocked. Good use of hands. Rushes equally as well from a 4-point or 2-point stance. Quick to read and react. He closes down the off tackle run lane and is quick enough to beat a pulling guard. Plays low and with good leverage. Slippery to block. 2015 stats: 60 T, 25.5 TFL, 12.5 sacks, 8 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.15, right 2.12. OSR:8/35. First round. (A-32 3/4, H-10, BP-DNP, 10-1.63).
