2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JUSTIN LAWLER: SMU, 6037 264 4.85. Three-year starter from Pottsboro, TX. Two-time first-team All- AAC pick. The high energy player pressures and forces the quarterback to the other side of the formation. Has a violent rip move that he uses to get into and get by a blocker. Has shorter arms than ideal for the position, but his good speed and athletic ability make up for the shortcoming. Ultra productive with 74 tackles last season. A hell bent for election type competitor who works from snap to whistle. Did not see any top level tackles and in one game had four sacks versus Connecticut. Has some first step quickness to gain an advantage upfield. He reacts quickly to the snap. The former high school power lifter has strength but must work to bend to leverage the off tackle crease. Not a natural knee bender. Must improve his hand use and develop a variety of pass rush moves. East-West Shrine participant. 2017 stats: 74 T, 15.5 TFL, 9.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 10 QBH, 2 FF, 3 BK. Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 3/4, H-9 3/8, BP-22, 10-1.74).
