I didn't know Dexter Lawrence was playing with a screw in his foot the last 2 years. Apparently it affected him his sophomore season and halfway through his junior season. Hard to get a good push off as a defender if your foot is bothering you.
I wanted him and had has him both of my mocks yet never knew about this screw either. My gosh SMH
I favored him too. Looks like the screw is out and he's better now according to him.

Q: What was the leg injury? A: I got a screw in my fifth metatarsal, but that had healed. The problem was they did a nerve block in the back of my leg and it irritated the nerves in my leg and I couldn’t do a toe raise or push-off with it or do anything with it for like a year and a month.
Q: When did you feel like your old self again? A: I felt like my old self probably halfway through my last season. Like the first half I was a little timid and I wasn’t quite confident with it and then I just had to sit down and talk to myself and be like, ‘You know how you felt playing on one leg, you got both of them back, take advantage of it. Just go out there and use it to the best of your abilities.’
“When we traded Snacks, part of the issue when Snacks was here was he played the one, we had Dalvin (Tomlinson) playing the three, and B.J. (Hill) playing the five techniques. Well, Dalvin’s a one technique and B.J.’s a three, so I’m very pleased with the change."
It’s funny to mock a dope who isn’t accountable online yet I never thought we would see one running the Giants front office. Maybe if we’re lucky he’ll get cut so the depth matches the OL.
I really liked this pick. Dexter wont give you Aaron Donald type pass rush obviously but he will crush and collapse pockets which will create tons of sack opportunities. Snacks was a great run defender but offered 0 pass rush ability. Lawrence is different he can move and his power is incredible. This was a really God pick I had no idea he was so high on their boards.

The dexter lawrence pick has potential to be a steal I think. EVerybody in the media is saying the same thing. If he is fully recovered from his injury (which you have to think he is) and if slims down some and becomes a 3 down player he could be a top guy in the NFL at his position. I'm starting to really like this pick based upon the upside..... Let's hope for the best.

Carson53: Good for Andrew and good for us. Given everything it would really suck to miss on a #4 overall pick at LT. Guys like that are supposed to be solid picks and he is.

alohar2: Does anyone know the exact nature of Rudolph's foot injury? I don't recall DG/JJ describing the injury. We recall Strahan had a lis franc- tough recovery. Rudolph offers the Giants the most complete TE since Shockey. Iowa State has several terrific TEs.
