Lawrence Flugence

LB | (6-1, 239, 4.82) | Texas Tech
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Saw limited action in '99. Started every game and led the Big 12 in tackles in 2000, '01, and '02. Was an Associated Press All-Big 12 pick (coaches' second team) in '01. Led the team, and the nation, with 193 tackles in '02, when he also had 61 tackles for loss, three sacks, broke up two passes and recovered a fumble. Was an All-Big 12 first-team pick.

Positives: Run-and-hit type of player. Has straight-line speed and gives good effort. Well-built, has a good bubble butt and gets in on a lot of plays. Hustles and chases. Catches well. Plays hurt.

Negatives: Slow reading and reacting. Does not use his hands well to shed blocks. Lacks change of direction and flexibility. Not aware in coverage and does not read patterns well. Moody and selfish with an inflated ego. Jump-on-pile tackler who is inconsistent wrapping up. Lacks awareness, instincts and play strength. Undersized with average ability to step up and fill with strength. Does not take on well and will struggle in coverage.

Summary: Sideline-to-sideline speed is not the question, but size, toughness inside and coverage skills could push him into the second day.
