    3. DEMARCUS LAWRENCE, Boise State (6-3, 250, 4.72, 1-2) – Redshirted one year and played another in junior college, started 23 games in 2012-'13 at Boise and declared a year early. "Down defensive end there," one scout said. "Pass rusher. Kind of a rangy guy. Got length, some rush skill and pretty solid production. He's had a few off-the-field issues. You hoped he would run much better." Finished with 120 tackles (34 for loss), 20 sacks and 10 big plays. Garnered 12 sacks in his JUCO season. "I like him as an outside backer," said another scout. "Problem is he's been suspended three times." Wonderlic of 20. "He's a little guy who is quick but not strong," a third scout said. "I don't know what the heck you're going to do with him. He didn't play linebacker there. He strictly rushed the passer. He's not physical. He was extremely disappointing. In fact, the entire Boise State team this year was disappointing." From Aiken, S.C.

    How was he "extremely disappointing" with that type of production? Sounds pretty good to me.

    Ugh. Not exactly glowing. Sounds like a desperation pick to me

    Doesn't sound promising.

    Looks like there wasn't a consensus opinion from the scouts on Lawrence... well that's why he is a 2nd round pick as opposed to a 1st round pick.

    I really thought they were going up for Ealy, I dont like this trade at all. We could have stayed where we were and still got a pretty good dl. Have to think Lawrence would have slipped quite far in this draft with his off the field issues.

    If Marinelli liked him enough to spend two picks on him, I'm sure he'll be a great player. I trust Marinelli. However, we need a lot more than just one player on defense. Not sure if we'll get starting-caliber players with a 4th, 5th and six 7ths.

    6'3" 250 sounds like a really nice 3-4 OLB to me. More of a puzzler in a 4-3.

    Generally that means you made a bad pick.

    If he turns out to be a quality pass rusher, then it was worth it. If not, this will prove to be a bad move. The Cowboys need playerS, just just one player. They can't afford to trade their 2nd and 3rd for one player. Very unhappy about this pick. Hope they prove me wrong.
