Cowboys swap picks with Redskins to take DeMarcus Lawrence

The Washington Redskins traded the 34th pick to the Dallas Cowboys for the 47th and 78th picks. With this pick, the Cowboys took Boise State defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.

A brief excerpt of Danny Kelley's scouting report on Lawrence on SB Nation:

Lawrence moves like an undersized defensive end prospect but plays with the physicality of a much bigger player. The long-armed, meat-hook-handed former Bronco is best rushing the passer -- he still has a little work to do in the run defense department -- but what I like most about him is his style of play: violent and aggressive, mean-spirited.

Lawrence does a good job of mixing speed moves to the outside with inside pressure and a bull rush.
