Dexter Lawrence says the situation has taught him how to handle adversity

Dexter Lawrence, a Clemson defensive tackle, suffered what appears to be a leg injury while running the 40-yard dash during the National Football League scouting combine Sunday morning.

Despite the injury, the 6-foot-4-inch, 342-pound tackle still recorded an unofficial time of 5.05 seconds. He later was seen with an ice pack wrapped on his leg.

Lawrence will have another chance to workout for teams at Clemson's pro day March 14, and he is expected to be ready by then. It is unclear whether Lawrence's injury will impact his participation in the event.

Sweat blazes unofficial 4.42 40
Right now the Chiefs sit at No. 29 overall in the draft and Sweat has been available in mocks around that point from time to time. Ultimately Metcalf's physical gifts will likely put him out of range of where the Chiefs are picking.

Lawrence declared for the 2019 NFL Draft after his junior season at Clemson.

Per the NFL Network, he stopped early during the bench press and held his right shoulder and right pectoral area, but per their source, "he just hurt his shoulder and should be fine for pro day".

The defensive lineman, who was one of three Clemson players suspended for the postseason after a drug test showed ostarine in his system, had been looking to impress. He had 133 total tackles, 20 tackles for a loss, 11 sacks and four passes defensed in his career.
