    (Editor’s Note: Heading into the upcoming NFL Draft, held May 8-10, DallasCowboys.com will take a closer look at the prospects, including some that could be potential fits with the Cowboys. Today’s featured player is Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence).

    Name: Demarcus Lawrence

    Position: Defensive End

    College: Boise State

    Height/Weight: 6-3/251

    Age: 21

    Honors: Lawrence was named first-team All-Mountain West during both of his seasons as a starter for Boise State. He was named second-team All-America and first-team All-Jayhawk Conference during one season as a starter for Butler Community College.

    Key stat: The impetus for Lawrence’s decision to enter the draft was probably the fact that he lived in the opposing backfield last fall. He finished the 2013 season with 10.5 sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss for the Broncos.

    Where He’s Projected: It shouldn’t be a surprise by now – Lawrence is yet another pass rush prospect who is considered a tweener. How you rank his prospects probably depends on whether you consider him a 3-4 outside linebacker or a 4-3 defensive end. He’s certainly a bit undersized to play as a down lineman, weighing in at just about 250 pounds, which may affect his draft stock. Most projections list him somewhere in the second or third round.
