New Free Agency Winners and Losers

Lawrence Timmons OLB 6'1 234 Florida St. Jr. 4.59

By: Robert Davis

Timmons did not see much action as a freshman, but became Ernie Simsí primary backup as a sophomore, and contributed 35 tackles, 3.5 for loss, and three sacks on the year. With Sims moving on, Timmons had his time to shine, and he took full advantage of it. As a junior, he had 79 tackles, 18 for loss, five sacks, and an interception.

Playmaker is the best word that describes Timmons as a player. Whether he is attacking the line of scrimmage, rushing the passer, or dropping into coverage, he has shown the ability to make big plays in all facets of the game. Heís an excellent athlete that plays with big time intensity. He is really aggressive on the field and flies all over the place to make plays. Timmons is a very good athlete that can really run.

Timmons has a lean frame and will have to pack on more weight at the next level. His lack of bulk can give him some problems getting off blocks and bringing down bigger backs and tight ends in the open field. Sometimes he is too aggressive and will run himself out of plays as a result.

Lawrence Timmons has a ton of upside at the next level. He only has one year of starting experience, and is not a finish product. He is still a very good player right now, who could wreak havoc on the weakside in the NFL. He has had a good showing in the post season, and should end up landing somewhere in the last half of the first round.
