      Local media is treating it as a foregone conclusion that he's going to be cut. Missing everything so far has killed any trade value he may have had, so he'll just have to be cut.
      Too bad, I didn't like him as a draft pick, but I thought they'd get something out of him at least. Huuuuge bust.

      Also means that two of Aaron Wallace, Josh Carraway, Gimel President, or Sharif Finch make the roster. My money would be on Wallace and Finch.

        Neither of those Clemson ends worked out did they?

          In theory, Lawson could still do something. Dodd looks like a huge bust though. Hopefully the Clemson DTs coming out next year avoid this fate.

            Has Lawson done much more than Dodd to this point though?

            While I do have hope for the two DTs, this is a trend with Clemson players. They are pretty well known for it in fact.

              May be scheme related. If Clemson runs really simple schemes (like Baylor used to) then their players could be behind the curve a bit.

                Could also be they're just soft like Texas players used to be. I'm gonna go with that one.

                  I actually looked up Lawson to see what he'd done. Yeah, it's a lot more than Dodd. Dodd has 1 sack and 12 career tackles. And that's in 18 games with only Orakpo and Morgan in front of him.

                  Lawson has 6 sacks, 3 defended passes, 2 forces fumbles, and 46 career tackles, in 21 games. Lawson is a disappointment, but Dodd is a bust.

                    Let's just agree they both suck.

                    • I figure its only year 3 for Lawson. May be make or break for him though.

                        Were they not drafted the same year?

                          Yeah. Dodd seems like a special level of suck though. As a rule, I like to give guys 3 years, unless they are spectacularly bad.

                            But, Dodd had to play, or not in this case, for Lebeau who hates young players.

                              Ehhh, true, but even with Lebeau he would have seen the field by now. He hasn't exactly had all world beaters in front of him either.

                                I'm just saying there are circumstances, and I don't think Lawson has been noticeably better. Plus I'm still deeply annoyed with Lebeau.
