QB - JAC
The 2021 No. 1 overall pick, Trevor Lawerence, signed a four-year, $36.8 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars that includes a standard fifth-year rookie option and $24.1 million in guaranteed money.
The good news here is that there will be no holdout for Lawrence, and he will get all the work needed to learn a new offense in Jacksonville. Lawerence is the unquestioned starter for the Jaguars. He was a superstar in college with a championship pedigree. The team has surrounded him with young, dynamic playmakers, and he's a good runner who can score touchdowns in goal-line situations. He should be a meaningful fantasy player from his first start and is now the face of football in Jacksonville.
James Palmer of NFL Network reports that the Jaguars are being very cautious with their star QB Trevor Lawrence.
He went on to say that he could play a game if he had to, but re-aggravating it could impact the start of camp. This is a smart move on the Jaguars part, since Lawrence was their first overall selection in this years draft. Lawrence will likely be eased into everything so he can get 100% healthy by the start of the season. He's a great late-round target for those wanting to wait on QBs in fantasy drafts due to his rushing upside.
Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (non-throwing shoulder) will participate in rookie minicamp but he's expected to be limited.
Lawrence underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder back in February. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network notes that this year's No. 1 overall pick is still expected to be a full-go for training camp. Jacksonville certainly isn't going to rush things with their new franchise player.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
No surprise here. The Jaguars knew they were selecting Lawrence the second they clinched the No. 1 overall pick last season. The former Clemson QB had a truly remarkable collegiate career, which began by leading his school to a National Championship as a true freshman. An athletic technician who possesses strong footwork and pinpoint accuracy as a passer, Lawrence is one of the best quarterback prospects from the past 20 years. What remains to be seen is how Urban Meyer’s offense translates both to Lawrence’s skill set and the pro game as a whole. Fantasy wise, Lawrence should flirt with streaming value as a rookie. In SuperFlex dynasty leagues he’s the unquestioned 1.01 selection. Arriving in Jacksonville should ultimately be the beginning of another great run for him.
Projected No. 1 overall pick and top draft prospect QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) resumed throwing a few weeks ago after undergoing successful surgery on his left shoulder earlier this offseason.
The former Clemson quarterback led the Tigers to the College Football Playoff in all three seasons as a starter, tossing 90 touchdowns and just 17 interceptions. Lawrence also used his deceptive open-field speed to tack on another 943 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns to prove his value as a complete dual-threat quarterback. Jacksonville has been linked to Lawrence since the end of last season and Jaguars' new head coach Urban Meyer reportedly has established a close relationship with the top prospect. Lawrence joins other notable quarterbacks in the draft who underwent surgery in recent years but the fact that it is his non-throwing arm should not dissuade front offices and scouting departments in the closing days leading up to the draft.
