Bio: 
Four-year starter at left tackle who earned First Team All-Conference USA honors in both 2015 and 2016. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA as a sophomore and Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt as a freshman. Started the first three games of his career at right guard before permanently moving to left tackle.
Pos: 
Hard-working and versatile college left tackle with minimal downside and risk. Quickly sets up off the snap, blocks with lean and stays square. Keeps his head on a swivel, keeps opponents in front of him and shows strength at the point of attack. Makes effective use of angles and rides pass rushers from the action or turns defenders off the line. Plays with a great degree of quickness and works hard to finish blocks. Flashes the ability to drive opponents off the line and is relatively effective in motion. Fires off the snap, quickly gets to the second level and nicely redirects or adjusts to a moving target.
Neg: 
Gets narrow-based on occasion and bends at the waist. Does not look or play like a top athlete. Lacks footwork off the edge. Has short arms.
Analysis: 
Lamp was a solid college lineman who performed well at the Senior Bowl the only day he practiced and then turned in a solid combine workout. He’s a plug-and-play prospect who should quickly find himself inserted into a starting lineup at guard and could eventually end up at the center position.
