Thoughts on Dexter Lawrence?

mittenedman : 8/10/2019 5:17 pm
Saw him get washed out by double teams a few times but also got good push when he was 1on1.
I've read a bunch of times that DTs need some development time.

If Lawrence has a big impact in pre-season or early in his rookie season, that will be unusual and very encouraging.
None of the Big 3 did very much.

I think Tomlinson had a couple of assists. We'll see what happens going forward.
the preseason does him no favors  
Giantsfan79 : 8/10/2019 5:52 pm : link
the best way d-lineman get a pass-rush is by doing stunts and shifts with other lineman and the Giants don't want to show any of that to opponents yet. I wouldn't judge Lawrence too much right now.
The NFL is a big step up.

How good he'll be is yet to be learned.
he's listed as first string on the depth chart  
bluepepper : 8/10/2019 6:10 pm : link
but unless I missed something he didn't play much on the first drive.
He had ups and downs  
BlueManCrew : 8/10/2019 6:12 pm : link
He made a nice play taking on and absorbing the double team which allowed Davis to get in there.
If he's occupying two blockers  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 8/10/2019 6:38 pm : link
He did his job.
It took linval a couple years too

DTs need development time because generally they get by on all strength in college and are coming in not a peak physical strength for men which starts at about 25. Dlaw is a monster with excellent technique, shouldn't be a problem for him. I'm surprised he lasted to 17.

LinJo didn't even start until his second year. His rookie year he only played in six games, no starts, racked up eight tackles.

Haloti Ngata started from Day One, but even he had a pretty tepid rookie year, with 31 tackles and a sack. I'll bet Lawrence beats that. We'll see.
His pad level was too vertical/upright imo  
Torrag : 8/10/2019 8:14 pm : link
He'll learn that in this league you can't run through everyone. Leverage is the name of the game. He'll be a dangerous guy once he learns the do's and dont's on how to succeed in the NFL.
He can't stand up straight ....  
Manny in CA : 8/10/2019 8:18 pm : link

Against two NFL linemen; he will learn how to get low and use his opponents momentum against them - that's when he will shine.

He's this year's "Will Hernandez" on defense.
The 7th round pick had a heck of a tfl  
barens : 8/10/2019 10:28 pm : link
Early on.
Wasted pick  
Reale01 : 8/10/2019 10:44 pm : link
He did nothing.

Thatís a great analogy, I hope itís really true
I thought he did a good job catching that pass from Daniel Jones

in the end zone..
Lawrence  
Mike in NY : 8/11/2019 9:47 am : link
His occupying of two blockers freed up Tae Davis and others to make plays. His impact is not just his numbers, but how he improves those around him. Too often last year the OL had an easy time getting to the second level and that is a tough chore for any LB
Dalvin also was strong Thursday  
flycatcher : 8/11/2019 9:48 am : link
he pushed into the backfield a few times, our dline gave Tae Davis space to run around and make 4 solos in a short period of time.

I think he was kidding. At least I hope he was.

A G in the 2nd level is a win for the offense, especially against a $B, Lawrence is a great complement to a $B.
Despite his size  
idiotsavant : 8/11/2019 11:54 am : link
I would try him on the weak side edge in 4 DL looks.

Being that he would be in a 1-1 deal there and has some quicks. It's unusual to see a left tackle have to take on an edge thats both larger and faster than he is. You have still got two bigs in Hill and Tomlinson as well as the prospect of inside blitz Ss and or lb or the 3 tech types in there if y
