Manny Lawson played DE for N.C State on the other side of DE Mario Williams. I read Lawsons' profile on nflfans.com and have him listed as an outside linebacker and emphasize that he would be excellent in the 3-4 as an outside linebacker. This guy is said to be very, very quick.
Since we're drafting 17th (16th if Vikings beat Bears), I doubt this guy will be around even though he's not being touted that high YET. Players with his size and speed shoot up draft charts like Merriman and Demarcus Ware did last year as well as DJ Williams from UM 2 years ago.
Boomer, what are your thoughts about this kid? This guy is a Jason Taylor clone that would definetely be hard to pass up when picking 16 or 17th.
