Trevor Lawrance says goodbye to Clemson and declares for the NFL Draft.
Now that the 2020 season has ended, the Jacksonville Jaguars can start making all the changes they need to turn the team around. As soon as they hire a new general manager and a head coach and they will be able to start evaluating players for the 2021 NFL Draft and the top-rated prospect, the one they will likely take with the first overall selection, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrance, has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Lawrence had previously hinted he would enter the draft but has now made his decision official in a video he posted on social media.
In the video, Lawrence says he hopes his legacy at Clemson is that he was a great teammate and a great person, more than just how he played. He learned a lot from coach Dabo Sweeney, and all his coaches. He added the faith aspect has been very important in his life, and cherishes all the memories and the little moments, being in the locker room, being in practice, laughing with his teammates, and enjoying life together.
Lawrance later says he’s ready to take on the challenges ahead and is excited about the future. He thanks everybody that supported Clemson, his teammates, his coaches the media, fans, and can’t wait to see what’s next for him. He then concludes the message by saying he will be a Clemson Tiger forever.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are in a prime position to draft Trevor Lawrance.
The draft is months away and the evaluation process has barely started, but it seems like a matter of time before the Jaguars make Lawrence the top pick in 2021’s draft. The possibility of taking quarterback Justin Field of Ohio State is there, but the consensus is that they will choose the Clemson standout.
Owner Shahid Kahn previously stressed the importance of having a franchise quarterback and believes this getting one will be a franchise-defining moment and now that Lawrence has declared for the draft, the Jaguars are one step closer from getting one.
