2014 NFL Draft: Boise State DE Demarcus Lawrence forgoing senior season

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Redshirt junior defensive end Demarcus Lawrence is giving up his final season of eligibility and head to the NFL.

Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence had made the decision to give up his final year that he could have spent being in college and instead will enter the NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Lawrence has had a great career at Boise State where he dominated opposing offenses to the tune of 34 tackles for a loss and 19 sacks over the past two years. He missed three games in the process during that time. In 2013 alone, Lawrence had 20.5 tackles for a loss and 10.5 sacks.

The 6'3", 245-pound defensive end probably could use to put on about 20 pounds, but he is very aggressive and his skill set should work very well in a team that runs a 3-4 defense playing outside linebacker. Just stick him on the outside and let Lawrence wreck havoc.

NFLDraftScout.com has Lawrence as the sixth best defensive end and the 115th player overall; basically making him a third or fourth round selection. While SB Nation's Mocking the Draft places Lawrence as the 12th rated defensive end.
