Dallas Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence was voted as the 34th-best player in the NFL by his peers on the NFL.com’s list of the “Top 100 Players of 2018.”
“It’s hard not to love the career arc of Lawrence, a defensive end who was stellar in 2015, couldn’t stay on the field in 2016 and burst through his glass ceiling in 2017,” the said NFL.com writer Nick Shook.
This offseason, the Dallas Cowboys placed the franchise tag on the fourth-year veteran after a 14.5 sack season that earned him a Pro Bowl nod.
Lawerence also recorded 58 tackles to go along with four forced fumbles.
“I feel like they have given me the opportunity to really break the bank next year,” said Lawrence in an interview with NFL Network’s Jane Slater.
Lawerence is the third Cowboys player to get over 14 sacks in one season (Demarcus Ware and Jim Jeffcoat being the other two).
He was also named breakout player of the year by Pro Football Focus.
Lawerence, 26, was drafted by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
