Each every so often, a quarterback prospect comes round who’s so particular that most individuals in and across the NFL know he’s going to be a future No. 1 total draft choose earlier than his last collegiate season even begins. Much more not often, there is a prospect so tantalizing that he is broadly thought-about a future No. 1 choose earlier than he is even performed a university sport.
Trevor Lawrence was the latter kind of prospect. Earlier than he even stepped on the sphere for the Clemson Tigers in 2018, the one thriller as to Lawrence’s future draft standing was which staff can be fortunate sufficient to get him. Three years later, we all know that staff is the Jacksonville Jaguars.
And it is protected to say Lawrence’s teammates are impressed by what they’ve seen in the course of the offseason program. Take linebacker Joe Schobert, for instance.
“Trevor’s bought an arm — a once-in-a-generation arm — and if he can put it collectively upstairs mentally for the rookie season within the NFL, which is all the time, as a quarterback, the toughest factor to do, we’ll be very profitable if we will get all that achieved,” Schobert stated throughout a radio interview.
Past simply his ability set, Schobert is impressed by Lawrence’s confidence and presence on the sphere.
“I imply, as a rookie coming into the NFL, I do know I positively wasn’t that assured,” Schobert stated. “I used to be trying as much as my veterans, attempting to take in all the knowledge, which he has been very respectful in asking questions. He is available in with a sure poise and a sure caliber, which I count on quarterbacks actually ought to imagine in themselves as a result of they play in such a high-stress atmosphere and so they’re those who get critiqued and judged probably the most on the soccer discipline. I believe if he is capable of mentally put every thing collectively, like choosing up a brand new playbook, understanding groups and going in opposition to completely different sorts of athletes on the defensive facet of the ball, he will be a particularly good quarterback for the following 10, 15, 20 years for Jacksonville. It is going to be thrilling to see how he progresses as a result of he has all of the instruments and all of the expertise.”
That is excessive reward for a rookie quarterback, but it surely’s additionally considerably anticipated for a prospect of Lawrence’s caliber. That is the kind of participant he is been seen as ever since highschool, the kind of participant he was in school, and the kind of participant many count on he’ll be within the professionals. All that is left to do is definitely do it.
