Former Tiger voted by peers as NFL's best at his position


There isn’t a better nose tackle in the NFL than Dexter Lawrence — at least according to some of his peers in the league.

The NFL Players Association released the Players’ All-Pro Top 5, giving the top five players at every position, as voted on specifically by those who play their position and those they line up against.

Lawrence was voted as the No. 1 nose tackle in the NFL, ahead of other standouts at the position like Kenny Clark of the Green Bay Packers, Vita Vea of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, D.J. Jones of the Denver Broncos and Al Woods of the Seattle Seahawks.

Drafted by the New York Giants in the first round (17th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft, Lawrence had his best season to date in his fourth NFL campaign. The 6-foot-4, 342-pounder recorded career highs in tackles (68), tackles for loss (7), sacks (7.5), quarterback hits (28), passes defended (3) and forced fumbles (2) across 16 regular season games.

Lawrence’s outstanding season earned him Pro Bowl honors, as well as second-team All-Pro honors by the Associated Press. Aditionally, he was named to the first Players’ All-Pro Team and the Professional Football Writers of America’s 2022 All-NFC team.
