The Sun Devils have produced a handful a NFL offensive linemen within the past decade, but Shawn Lauvao has found the most success of the lot thus far.
The 29-year-old has been a steady player throughout his seven seasons thus far, accumulating 76 starts in 85 career appearances.
Time at ASU
2005: Redshirted, scout team (earned McBurney Scout Team Award, given to team’s most outstanding scout team player)
2006: Appeared in five games
2007: Nine starts (left guard), 13 appearances
2008: 12 starts (eight left guard, four right tackle)
2009: 12 starts (left tackle)
Over four seasons, Lauvao was moved along several different positions on ASU’s offensive line, but was considered to be a consistent, powerful force.
Lauvao started an impressive 33 consecutive games for the Sun Devils. He earned Honorable Mention All-Pac-10 in 2008, before drawing Second-Team honors in 2009.
Time in the Pros
2010: Cleveland Browns (drafted third round, 92 overall pick): One start (10 appearances)
2011: Cleveland Browns: 16 starts
2012: Cleveland Browns: 16 starts
2013: Cleveland Browns: 11 starts (11 appearances)
2014: Washington: 15 starts (15 appearances)
2015: Washington: three starts (three appearances)
2016: Washington: 14 starts (14 appearances)
Like his time in at ASU, Lauvao has proven to be a consistent contributor at the pro level. Since securing a starting position with the Browns during his rookie season (during which he started just one game), he’s started every game he’s appeared in for the past six seasons for both Cleveland and Washington.
