Lorenzo Lynch (born April 6, 1963 in Oakland, California) is a former American professional football player. A 5'9", 197 lbs. cornerback from Sacramento State, Lynch played in 11 NFL seasons for three teams. In his NFL career, he had 17 interceptions for 315 yards and 2 touchdowns.

In the pregame show for the NFL Network's presentation of Thursday Night Football on 9/20/2012, former Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin recalled a game he played against Lynch (then playing for the Phoenix Cardinals) 20 years earlier on 9/20/1992. He quoted Lynch as stating before the game, "I'll be with you all day, Michael." Irvin went on to have one of his best games (in terms of numbers), catching for 210 yards and 3 touchdowns.

His nephew Marshawn Lynch is currently a running back for the Seattle Seahawks and was drafted in 2007. He is also related to quarterback Josh Johnson who plays for the Cleveland Browns.
