Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA in 2016 and 2017 and led Old Dominion in rushing in each of his four seasons with the Monarchs. Led the team with seven rushing touchdowns and rushed for 724 yards on 132 carries as a senior. Posted 1,255 rushing yards and 11 scores on 200 carries in 2016. Earned Second Team All-Conference USA honors and led ODU with 11 rushing touchdowns as a sophomore, carrying 194 times for 1,136 yards. Finished third in the conference with 16 scores on the ground as a true freshman and rushed 134 times for 947 yards.
Pos: 
Short, shifty ball carrier with outstanding vision and instincts. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, finds running lanes and will pick and choose his spots on the inside. Displays the quickness and agility necessary to turn the corner, squeezes through small creases in the offensive line and creates yardage. Multi-cut ball carrier who makes defenders miss. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield who extends his hands and grabs passes away from his frame. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes.
Neg: 
Lacks true perimeter speed. Does not pick up difficult yardage or show the ability to break tackles. Quicker than fast and struggles to beat opponents into the open field.
Analysis: 
Lawry was a solid all-around back for Old Dominion and offers potential as a third-down back and situational ball carrier at the next level.
