9. Demarcus Lawrence Boise State (Mid Round 2)

This is one of those guys that was put into a system last year that did not necessarily work for his talents. Lawrence has a nice frame that could bear some additional weight transforming him into an every down 43 defensive end in the long term. For now he has upside as a conditional pass rusher that can be highly effective on the edge.
