Former Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, who left school with one season of eligibility remaining, could be a late first-round pick in next month's NFL Draft. That's where some analysts have Lawrence in their latest mock drafts.

Dane Brugler, writing for CBSSports.com, has Lawrence going No. 27 to the New Orleans Saints.

Rob Rang, also writing for CBSSports.com, has the Patriots taking Lawrence at No. 29.

This year's NFL Draft is May 8-10.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay ranks Lawrence as the No. 5 outside linebacker in the draft. Fellow ESPN draftnik Mel Kiper has Lawrence ranked as the No. 8 defensive end in the draft.

Lawrence (6-foot-3, 245 pounds) played two seasons for the Broncos after transferring from Butler Community College in Kansas. Lawrence earned first-team All-Mountain West honors in 2012 and 2013. In two seasons for the Broncos, Lawrence had 33.5 tackles for loss, including 20 sacks.
