Summary

Lawson was a first round pick but only started one game as a rookie in 2016 as he came into the league with a pre-existing shoulder injury. So, that was pretty much a redshirt year for him but he started 10 of 11 games last year after the Bills moved to a 4-3 defense. His play against the run was generally above average but he mostly underwhelmed as a pass rusher. As a result, the team went out and signed Trent Murphy in free agency to try and provide some additional competition and depth at the defensive end position. Lawson has the talent and potential to develop into the team's best pass-rusher as early as this year, but it's also possible he could be reduced to a part-time role. (May 13)
