Trevor Lawrence is a top-5 quarterback in the NFL going forward
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a surprisingly magnificent season. They weren’t in the running for the AFC’s number one seed like the Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, or Buffalo Bills but they were a division winner like those three.
They started 2-6 but finished so strong to win the AFC South. If they would have started the way that they finished, they certainly would have been in the mix with those aforementioned teams but they had to have a learning curve this year. The future is bright.
One of the reasons that the future is bright is the fact that they have this quarterback named Trevor Lawrence. He was the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Clemson where he was truly amazing.
This kid was the top quarterback in high school, the top quarterback in the nation during college, and the number one pick in the NFL Draft. It was weird that he wasn’t all that good in year one but we are going to forget the Urban Meyer era forever and pretend it never happened.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to be so good with Trevor Lawrence soon.
After year two, you can argue that Trevor Lawrence is now a top-five quarterback in the National Football League. He took his team down the stretch to win the division, came back from down 27 to win a playoff game, and had a great showing in a close loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
Obviously, Patrick Mahomes is there at the top with Joe Burrow and Josh Allen right behind him. After that, there are guys like Aaron Rodgers, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, and Justin Herbert at different points of their careers trying to be the best as well.
Lawrence is amongst them now. There is the aforementioned big three of Mahomes, Burrow, and Allen but Lawrence is coming fast. Going forward, it is fair to consider him in the top five. We know he has the pedigree the be amongst the best and he is showing it.
28 out of the 32 teams would love to have Lawrence coming into 2023 and would give up a lot to be the team that has him. Now, Jaguars fans get to be the people cheering him on and that is a great feeling.
Next year is going to be hard because the schedule is deep but it will be so fun to see them compete like a first-place team playing a first-place schedule. Lawrence leading the way is a great thing. Again, going forward he is in the top five.
