    You haven't yet stated how Lawrence is better.

    Broaddus says he stiff in the hips.

    SCOUT’S TAKE: Physically looks like a safety. … Can really hit, explosive in the way he attacks the ball. … Unloads on runners and receivers
    crossing the middle. … Not the most fluid‐moving player and because of his size, doesn’t always look smooth. … To use a scouting term,
    he is stiff in the hips, limiting his ability to change directions, which is different from the other top safeties in the draft. … Needs to do a better
    job of securing the tackle first instead of going for the big hit because you will see him miss in space.

    And yet he timed better in the "turn & run" than any other safety at the combine other than Dix.

    Better variety of pass rush moves and technique, better build/length. Smith needs to be a 3-4 OLB from what I see, whereas Lawrence has the type of frame that lends itself better to a 4-3 end.

    So you think Lawrence is better suited to play DE than Chris Smith because he's 2 inches taller? Makes perfect sense.....Despite the fact that Smith has more muscle, weighs more, and tested both stronger and more athletic.

    And you said earlier that football is about leverage. Who wins the leverage battle in football again? Oh yeah, the guy who is lower. And what helps a ton with leverage? Long arms.

    There is a reason practically every pundit has Smith in the second tier of OLB prospects and Lawrence in the upper tier of DE prospects.

    It is also about technique. And that Lawrence has far more of the traits that you look for in a 4-3 end IMO.

    thanx MW
    i like ourlads evaluations generally
    WDE is a real need on the team this year
    will be interesting to see who we pick
    i am not a fan of Barr at 16 or Ford in rd 1
    give me donald, dix, jernigan in rd 1 and go DE later

    Given time later on today I'm going to go through the Ourlads evaluations and try to put together a list of potential WDE's by going through both their DE and OLB categories. Barr for instance is listed in their directory as an OLB and not a DE.

    Ourlad's does mention it here:

    NFL.com
    CBS
    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1737409/deone-bucannon

    Looks like everyone else thinks he's a 2nd-3rd round prospect.
