NFL Draft 2014: Boise State DE Demarcus Lawrence will enter

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Boise State's Christmas Eve loss to Oregon State was the final game of Demarcus Lawrence's college career.

Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence said that he will leave school a year early and enter the 2014 NFL Draftaccording to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Lawrence, a 6'3, 245-pound defensive end, had a monster year for Boise State. He finished the season with 20.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks after collecting 13.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks as a sophomore. Lawrence has the NFL skill set to match his college production, too. Despite being a bit light, Lawrence has the length and aggressive hands to keep blockers out of his body. He's also a high-energy player.

In Mocking the Draft's latest positional rankings for the 2014 NFL Draft, Lawrence came in as the No. 12 defensive end. He could also be a fit in a 3-4 defense as an outside linebacker given his change of direction ability. At this point, Lawrence has a strong chance to come off the board on the second night of the NFL Draft, but don't be surprised if he's a hot name throughout the pre-draft process.
