The Dallas Cowboys, along with several other teams scouting this week's Senior Bowl, talked extensively with defensive linemen during Wednesday morning's scouting session.
One of the players the Cowboys interviewed was N.C. State defensive end Manny Lawson.
Lawson, a projected first round draft pick in the upcoming NFL draft, has seen his stock rise this week during Senior Bowl workouts.
Tuesday, he routinely beat Auburn left tackle Marcus McNeill, who is also viewed as a potential first round selection, during one-on-one drills.
TheRanchReport.com will have more information on Lawson's interview, as well as additional players the Cowboys have spoken with the last three days, later this evening.
Manny Lawson Scouting Report:
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 235 40: 4.58 Yr: 4Sr
Pos: Solid athlete who plays bigger and stronger then his computer numbers. Quickly gets off the snap with a good first step, plays with good pad level and drives up the field. Collapses nicely from the outside defending the run, displays the ability to twist or stunt and quickly redirects to the action. Plays with a good degree of explosion and suddenness. Gets vertical to knock down passes and fast off the edge.
Neg: Turned off the point by blocks and has difficulty when opponents run in his direction. Swallow up by big lineman.
Analysis: Productive in all aspects of the game, Lawson is solid first day material next April. Could be used in a variety of ways and should produce on special teams.
