How Shaq provided assurance on his shoulder

There was one team, one team out of the 32 NFL clubs who flagged Shaq Lawson’s shoulder as a potential problem. It forced Lawson to return to Indianapolis for the combine medical re-check on April 15th, even though 31 other clubs had passed him.

All the other teams looked at his shoulder again in mid-April, but the consensus was he was good to go.

“At the time when I went to the Combine one team that had flagged me was Jacksonville, they had flagged me, everybody else had passed me,” Lawson said. “And when I went back to the re-check a lot of teams said my range of motion was great. Everything was great, I had improved.”

Lawson also went a step further to demonstrate the level of strength he had in the shoulder that was being re-checked. After not benching at the combine or his pro day he did so on video.

“I sent the video out Monday to all 32 teams of my bench press, and the whole full show of the workout,” said Lawson.
