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 September 20, 2012, former Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin recalled a game he played against Lynch (then playing for the Phoenix Cardinals) 20 years earlier on September 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 a running back. He is also related to quarterback Josh Johnson who also played for the San Francisco 49ers.
