Former Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is off to a great start in his rookie season for the New York Giants.
In this edition of What They Are Saying, we look at what is being said about Lawrence on Twitter.
We’ll spend a lot of time talking about Daniel Jones but he wasn’t the only rookie that deserves praise: Dexter Lawrence, DeAndre Baker, Darius Slayton and Ryan Connelly played a hell of a game.

Funny, I remember when the "experts" said Dexter Lawrence couldn't rush the QB. I tried to tell the buffoons that he played on one foot at Clemson, but no, they knew. Lawrence has a sack and 6 hurries the last two games- and don't forget, his blocked extra point was the diff.

Dexter Lawrence had a sack, a blocked XP, and made this HUGE play when the Giants needed it to get Daniel Jones the ball one last time. Sexy Dexy @llawrence2139 is Week 3’s #BobbysBAMF pic.twitter.com/TiWC9RveI4

Dexter Lawrence blocked the PAT after the Evans TD. He was called for that roughness penalty on FG last week.

Dexter Lawrence telling me today that he had a few blocks at Clemson. Lawrence blocked extra-point turned out to be the difference.

Here's a screengrab from Bucs' blocked extra point. Angle doesn't look crazy low for Gay — Giants rookie Dexter Lawrence (6-4, 342) got a good push on Alex Cappa and full extension to get a hand on it. pic.twitter.com/AWffPwX6U6

I’m really excited about Dexter Lawrence…
The guy is 6-foot-4, 342 pounds of pure monster.
As an interior lineman he’s racked up 7 total tackles, 1 sack and 2 QB hits in 3 games. He’s constantly being double teamed and with more experience will be unstoppable.#giantschat

Dexter Lawrence blows into the backfield and bats down a Jameis Winston pass. Ogletree picks the ball up and takes off. Bucs players were coming off the sideline had to jump back off field. Ogletree appears to hear a whistle & slows. Gets knocked down by Peppers. And injured. WTH

Giants rookie Dexter Lawrence was not fined for the unnecessary roughness penalty called against him on the field goal attempt in the fourth quarter against the Bills last Sunday, per source.
