Former Boise State defensive linemen Demarcus Lawrence is participating in on-field drills and tests at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Lawrence (draft profile)ran an official time of 4.80 seconds in the 40-yard dash Monday morning.

"Now this kid Lawrence has some ability. He's raw ... I watched him against Nevada and he ate up Nevada's right tackle but struggled against their left tackle, who happens to be a guy named Joel Bitonio, who I think is a second-round left tackle. Bitonio kind of handled him all day long. He's got to learn how to use his speed, better use of his hands. He's an athletic kid that's got a future," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said.

The NFL Network is showing live coverage from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can also watch online at NFL.com.
