Why Shaq is familiar with the defense

Posted by Chris Brown on October 19, 2016 – 5:28 pm

Bills top draft choice Shaq Lawson took part in his first practice Wednesday as he was full go. And by most accounts he was consistent with the execution of his assignments. Lawson explained why.

“I’ve been involved with the defense from day one since I got hurt,” he said. “Jerry (Hughes) and Kyle Williams have been helping me through the process since I had surgery. So when I came out here today I felt like I was picking things up fast. I knew what to do and the installs that we had today. So those older guys were helping me.”

Hughes has been a sounding board for Lawson since he was drafted and has been mentoring the first-round pick since the spring.
