*MSA Rating: The average score of a prospect’s market share production, strength of schedule and age percentile scores

*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

 

Metric Analysis: Carl Lawson has a very uneven profile. Above average age and athleticism for his size. But very low solo tackle market share. In addition to a 7.46 3-Cone that takes him out of multiple Pro Bowl range of prospects. Lawson will likely have a very good career as a long-term starter/rotational pass rusher.

However, his history of injuries and his 3-Cone score are likely indicative of a pattern here.
