Weaknesses:


Courageous as Lawrence is when he runs with the ball, his ability to protect himself is an area of concern. He must improve this aspect (which includes sliding), in order to avoid taking any unnecessary contact. As much as his poise in the pocket when pressured has improved, he still has a tendency of making questionable decisions with the ball in these situations.
