Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is reportedly sliding down boards around the league ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report noted Friday that some scouts are not high on Lawrence’s talent as it translates to the NFL game.
Lawrence recently was suspended for PEDs and missed the Tigers’ two playoff games, which is one reason his stock is tumbling.
The 6-foot-4, 340-pounder plays the nose tackle position, which Miller notes is “becoming extinct” in today’s NFL.
Declining stock, declining stats: Once seen as a top-tier NFL draft prospect, Lawrence’s production slipped while at Clemson.
