    He played DT at ASU, but his play reminds me of Ty Warren. Decent run stuffer, plays his gaps well. Adds something to the pass rush as a gap shooter, not something BB will stand for unfortunately for Guy.

    At 6'4" and 300 plus pounds, could he project into a 3-4 DE in our dfense?

    YES.


    Well chosen, sir.

    MIND you: Lawrence Guy's resume SCREAMS "Shooter!! NOT a Sticker!! STAY AWAY!! Stay AWAY!!"

    But he is a GREAT example of Paralysis by Analysis.

    The ultimate variable ~ the ultimate TRUMP Card ~ in evaluating any FOOTBALL Prospect...is Character.

    And Lawrence Guy has The Heart of a LION.

    Most Shooters ~ Allen Bailey and Von Miller come prominently to mind ~ will REMAIN Shooters...

    ...and pile up Gaudy stats, while their teams make the PlayOffs every year...only to be eliminated in the 1st or 2nd Round...

    ...every YEAR.


    But those young lads who have discovered the SEISMIC effect of Persistence Dedication to Craft ~ or who have simply discovered The Incomparable Gratification of Hard Work...and Team Work ~ will NOT be limited by their previous Roles.

    Lawrence Guy is one such lad.

    As is JJ Watt, for that matter.

    If Coach Bill The Mad pulls the trigger on either of these lads ~ or BOTH, as I pray he will ~ they'll both become exceptional Stickers: Gap Sticking Defensive Ends who forge legendary careers that are short on Sacks and Pro Bowls...and who instead must find solace and comfort in the vital parts they play in forging Championships...and Immortality.

    He's a mid-round prospect (3-4 Rnd) that should have stayed in school for 1 more year as he had a down year in 2010.

    He never caught my eye, and you might have noticed I tend to watch the trenches a tad more than the backfield and secondary. :confused2:
