2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Rashard Lawrence, DT. LSU Tigers

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-SEC honors and made 28 tackles (six for loss) with 2.5 sacks and three pass breakups as a senior in 2019. Made 54 tackles (10.5 for loss) with four sacks and three pass breakups as a junior. Missed three games in 2019 due to an ankle injury.

Positives
Underrated defensive line prospect who can occupy gaps and make plays on the football. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, quickly gets his hands up and effectively uses them to protect himself. Smart, relentless and displays outstanding instincts. Resilient, keeps his feet moving and quickly locates the ball. Displays good change-of-direction skills and easily collapses down the line of scrimmage against the run.

Negatives
Slow to get off blocks despite his size. Doesn’t get into space to make plays in pursuit.

Analysis
Lawrence was a productive lineman who consistently made big plays for LSU in important moments. He offers scheme versatility and upside, and in time Lawrence could develop into a three-down player at the next level.
