Chiefs Select WR Quinten Lawrence in 6th Round
Apr 26, 2009, 3:10:44 PM
Lawrence brings speed to the table, and plenty of it. He averaged 19.5 yards on each of his 87 receptions coming into
the year, earning second-team All-Southland as a junior. Unfortunately a mid-season lower leg injury cost him a large
chunk of his senior campaign; he had only 12 catches for 209 yards and a touchdown in five games this season. He did,
however, play some defensive back and take his only career punt return 70 yards for a touchdown. His speed and
elusiveness give him a chance to make a team as a returner and fourth receiver/cornerback if he checks out medically.

span of 8 1/4 inches at the combine.
