With NFL training camp underway, former Yale tight end Nate Lawrie '04 is preparing for his first pro season after being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round. Lawrie has begun drawing notice from the local media, as The Ledger singled him out as one to "Watch Out For" in a recent notebook on the Bucs.
"At 6-7, he's a big target, and coaches like his blocking," the article notes. Lawrie is competing with three other tight ends for playing time.
