The first pick in this year’s NFL Draft is currently held by the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that has two quarterbacks on the roster in Gardner Minshew and Jake Luton. Let’s see what they get for Lawrence and why he’s such a player.
Besides all the accolades and stats, the first thing that stands out about Lawrence is his arm strength and accuracy. Lawrence has the ability to make all types of throws, he can throw in the run, and has consistently shown he can do things with his feet when the pocket collapses. He is exceptional at improvising and extending the game, and often a game that seems headed for certain disaster ends in a positive victory with Lawrence at center.

As a Notre Dame fan who was victimized by Trevor Lawrence in the 2018 College Football Playoff and 2020 ACC Championship Game, I can assure you that this guy is a real find. He always seems to make something out of nothing, and just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, he throws a 60-yard bomb at the head or scrambles for 20 yards. As an Irish fan, it hurt my feelings a lot. But as a football fan, you have to respect your game.
Lawrence should be an immediate impact player for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the emergence of RB James Robinson will give Lawrence a quality running game to rely on. Lawrence would also benefit from the addition of D.J. Chark and Laviska Shenault Jr. at wide receiver. It will be interesting to see how Urban Meyer’s offense transitions from college to the NFL, but I can’t imagine a better quarterback to play for the Jaguars. That’s why I think he’ll be the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
When a name is mentioned in the same sentence as Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning when it comes to draft prospects, the sky really is the limit. Hopefully Lawrence can do the same as he did at Clemson, because that would make him a dunk.

Lawrence has the opportunity to become the face of not only the franchise, but the entire league if he lives up to the hype. He was a team captain at Clemson, where he also made a name for himself on campus and in the surrounding communities. Lawrence has also advocated for the return of college football in 2020, and he has made his voice heard on many social issues.
The kid has been a superstar since his first season at Clemson, so he’s ready for new lights. Hopefully the Jaguars can give him the tools to succeed and keep him healthy. Currently, Lawrence has 10,000/1 odds at BetRivers Sportsbook to be the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. I don’t see a scenario where he doesn’t become #1, even if the Jaguars are crazy enough to move up from the sample.
