A first-team All-ACC pick, Lawson ranked second to Mario Williams in the ACC in sacks with 9.5. He missed the 2004 first-team by one vote, but had a huge senior season.
Lawson is expected to be a first round pick in the upcoming 2006 NFL Draft. The Patriots are interested in Lawson should he be available when they make their selection at the 21st slot.
