vorlegen

Meanings

1.
to present, to put forth, to show
(For all kinds of documents and plans. Also used in context of musicians putting out their new album, but to me, it sounds a bit too formal.)
2.
to take a good lead
(Do something first, and now someone else has to catch up. Think of playing billiard, where someone has a really good first round.)
Opposite (closest): nachziehen
3.
to lay in front
(In the literal sense. Think of a towel in front of a fridge. Usually with a "da" in the sentence, or "davor-" as a prefix.)
