90, Xavier Lawson-Kennedy, DT
Jr., 6-1, 300, Duncanville, TX
Perhaps motivated by his new partner and by a new head coach and position coach, XLK dropped some 30 pounds before spring practice and played much closer to the player that was expected when he came out of Duncanville as one of the top defensive tackles in his class. There is no doubt that new defensive line coach Nelson Barnes helped some with technique, but Lawson-Kennedy is also healthy and inspired. He is so strong that he commands a double team. He and Ryan McBean assisted each other in making plays. XLK is really a force as a run stopper.
