2019 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 17th pick in the draft, the 6-5, 342-pound Lawrence is a monster interior lineman with excellent quickness for his size. There's some concern that his college production fell off after his freshman year, and he's unlikely to be especially valuable for IDP purposes as he'll be doing the dirty work inside while others rush the passer. He'll rotate at nose tackle with Dalvin Tomlinson on passing downs but could win the starting left defensive end job in the team's 3-4 scheme out of the gate. Read Past Outlooks
Giants select at 17
DTNew York Giants
Leg
April 25, 2019
The Giants selected Lawrence in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 17th overall.
ANALYSIS
Lawrence is an objectively talented athlete with a 5.05-second 40-yard dash at a mammoth 6-foot-5, 342 pounds. He was highly productive in his true freshman season at Clemson, totaling 62 tackles, 6.5 sacks and nine tackles for loss. Unfortunately, from that point he totaled just 71 tackles, four sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss in the subsequent 25 games. While he's more than just a blob who takes up space, it's concerning that his production fell off like that, and the career of Dontari Poe gives us a useful case study in how a player of his genre might apply to the NFL. Poe had some useful seasons but ultimately failed to turn into a notable NFL presence, and Poe was even more athletic. Danny Shelton is another concerning recent case study for the sort of space-eating tackle Lawrence projects as. You in any case have to wonder why the Giants would move Damon Harrison if they'd consequently feel the need to make a selection like this one. Lawrence is unlikely to pop up as an IDP unless his nature changes.
