By far, Nile Lawrence-Stample had his best season at Florida State in 2015, his redshirt senior year. The Florida native recorded career highs in tackles (36), tackles for loss (3.5) and sacks (2.5). That earned him a spot on the All-ACC First Team as voted by the coaches, and an All-ACC Second Team spot from the media. In 2014, the 6'1, 302 pound lineman blocked an extra point attempt and added 10 tackles before suffering a season ending injury. The 22-year-old played with current NFL defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in 2013, giving him a good foundation for learning to go along with his five years in the program .
On mock drafts around the internet, Lawrence-Stample is getting selected as early as the fourth round in some projections to unranked. He participated in both the NFL scouting combine and FSU Pro Day prior to the 2016 NFL Draft, while participating in the East-West Shrine Game following the 2015 season.
