Demarcus — now DeMarcus — Lawrence creates buzz at Cowboys camp

Former Boise State defensive end Demarcus — now DeMarcus — Lawrence generated a lot of buzz in Dallas during the Cowboys’ rookie minicamp. The second-round draft pick’s performance will be evaluated for years based on the team’s decision to give up a third-round pick to the rival Redskins to trade up and get him.
