A second round pass rusher with great potential Dan Leberfeld

Q)What is your size?

Demarcus Lawrence – Boise State: 6-2 7/8, 251.

Q)Are you more of a 3-4 OLB or a 4-3 DE?

Lawrence: I think I’m versatile enough to play either way. I really like to get after the quarterback. So it really doesn’t matter if I’m standing up or whatever. If you punish the quarterback, you change the game.

Q)Seven forced fumbles at Boise State. Do you have a knack for that?

Lawrence: Not really. Just getting after the ball.

Q)Who was the best player your faced in college?

Lawrence: Probably Derek Carr at Fresno.

Q)Who was the best offensive tackle you faced in college?

Lawrence: I played against a pretty good tackle at Nevada (Joel Bitonio). He was just throwing me different kind of sets, different kind of moves. He had pretty good footwork, too.

Q)How much did it help you facing offensive tackle Charles Leno every day in practice?

Lawrence: He’s very long. He’s got great footwork, also. He’ll throw me different types of sets, different types of hand moves. So it’s very good going against him every day.

Q)How did a guy from Aiken, South Carolina end up at Boise State?

Lawrence: Leaving high school I went to junior college in Kansas. So I was already used to being away from home. And just made it out to Boise.

Q)Was it a big adjustment for you?

Lawrence: I had to make a couple of adjustments, but it wasn’t nothing major. I’m used to being in the house playing video games all day anyway.

Q)Where are you at with your maturity?

Lawrence: I think I’ve matured. Right now I feel that really I’ve grown up a lot on and off the field. It’s really not a problem. I feel like I became a better man, not just for myself but for others.
