Scouting Report

Well, Lawrence is huge, for starters. At 6’7”, 344-lbs, he is a mammoth offensive lineman, and his physical skill set was on full display when he camped with the Minnesota coaching staff back in June. Alternating between playing tackle and guard during camp, Lawrence used his frame to maul defensive linemen. The catch with Lawrence is that he is still a bit raw. He needs to be more consistent in his pad level and will need to work on refining his technique at the college level. But all the physical tools are there. Leave the rest to offensive line coach Brian Callahan.
