by - Senior Editor -

As the 2023 NFL Draft approaches, teams are looking to strengthen their rosters with top talent from the college football ranks.

One prospect who has been generating interest is Dexter Lawson Jr, a defensive back who recently had a phone call with the Chicago Bears, according to reporter Daniel Greenberg.

Lawson played college football at Appalachian State University, where he was a standout player on defense.

In the 2022 season, he played in all 12 games and made 10 starts at cornerback. He demonstrated his playmaking ability by snagging a team-high three interceptions, along with 26 tackles, one tackle for loss, five pass breakups, and a forced fumble.

His playmaking ability as a defensive back makes him a valuable asset for any team in need of defensive help.
