Pos: 
Explosive inside linebacker who is constantly around the action. Quick to read and diagnose, fluid and fast in lateral pursuit and breaks down well. Smooth in his backpedal and in reverse, uses his hands to protect himself and gets depth on pass drops. Displays good change of direction and speed to every area of the field and sells out to defend the run. Remains disciplined with assignments and plays heads-up football.
Neg: 
Inefficient and does not always take proper angles. Lacks size and gets engulfed by blocks and easily taken from the action.
Analysis: 
Lawless is an undersized run-and-chase linebacker who plays tough, instinctive football. He offers special-teams ability, which will be his path onto a roster at the next level.
