Former Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson is one of the best players available in the 2016 NFL Draft. However, one problem he has seemed to have over the last few months is a nagging shoulder injury.
He went back to Indianapolis to be re-evaluated and it looks like he is good to go at this point. NFL Senior Media analyst Ian Rapoport reported that Lawson’s shoulder checked out and he should have no limitations upon his drafting in two weeks.
One team had flagged #Clemson DE Shaq Lawson's shoulder. That team checked it out in Indy and gave it 👍🏻. He didn't miss a game in 3 years.

Lawson is expected to be a top-ten selection at this point and he should make an impact at the next level. He would certainly be a huge pickup for any team over his career.
During the 2015 season, Shaq Lawson led the country with 24.5 tackles for loss and led the ACC with 12.5 sacks. He also has not missed any playing time over the last three years, so that shows he will be a huge piece in the NFL.
