Rex Ryan has a fondness for Clemson players so it's no surprise that Buffalo selected Lawson. The Clemson Tigers product is coming off of a season in which he recorded 24.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks. In his career at Clemson, Lawson registered 123 total tackles, 45.5 tackles for loss, and 20 sacks.
Lawson was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 edge defender and he fills a major hole on Buffalo's defense.
