Former Clemson Tigers edge rusher is expected to be a first round pick at the upcoming NFL Draft in April.
And though most of his time is spent working out and meeting with teams ahead of the draft, Lawson was able to take some time out of his schedule to head to the ESPN campus to record an episode of Sport Science on Friday.

Based on the pictures, it seems that the show is testing Lawson’s speed, strength and agility. The picture in the lower-left corner is likely a test on how hard he hits when he tackles someone at full speed. I hope they used a tackling dummy for that segment because I can only imagine how much a hit from Lawson would hurt while standing still.
The latest Campus Sports Mock Draft, which you can check out here, has Lawson going 17th to the Atlanta Falcons.
