2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Now healthy, the 2016 first-rounder should enjoy the new 4-3 defense that he's far more familiar with compared to Rex Ryan's 3-4. Lawson will start at end across from Jerry Hughes and might not come off the field that much considering there's not much experience behind those two quality pass rushers. The Bills might have a nasty D-Line if everyone stays healthy this season, as Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams form a pretty lethal interior pair.

2016

Buffalo's 2016 first-round selection, Lawson will be an immediate starter on the defensive front, if and when he's fully healthy. However, after pre-draft concerns, the Clemson product underwent shoulder surgery in May, and could begin his rookie season on the sidelines. The Bills are relying on a few of their draft picks, most notably Lawson, to re-energize a pass rush that fell on hard times in 2015.
