With the 133rd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions selected Utah State Aggies cornerback Nevin Lawson. Lawson is 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds and rated as the No. 20 cornerback and 147th player in the draft, according to Mocking The Draft.

Lawson was key to Utah State's defense which was No. 1 overall and second in the Mountain West in pass defense. As for what Lawson did, he had four interceptions, one for a touchdown, and an amazing 14 pass break ups. Lawson makes plays and gets his hands on the ball, and is a play maker.

Here is the bottom line on Lawson's scouting report:

Overall, Lawson still is a very exciting player who brings everything he has on every play. His size notwithstanding, he has elite speed and coverage abilities. His determination and sheer will often make up for his size, and he should have a spot open to him in the earlier rounds of the draft.

Here are highlights of Lawson against Fresno State in the Mountain West title game:
