Jaguars News: Colin Cowherd makes a bold claim about Trevor Lawrence
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a great year. They came in with mixed expectations but got off to a 2-6 start which made everyone think they will be getting ready for another top-five pick in the draft. That did not end up being the case.
The Jaguars came all the way back to win the AFC South. For the final two months of the season, you can argue that Trevor Lawrence was the best quarterback in the NFL. He led this team in every way that a QB needs to lead.
Lawrence had one bad half from Thanksgiving on and it was the first half of his first career playoff game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Luckily, he was so goon in the second half that they erased a 27-point deficit to win the game.
Now, we go into the off-season wondering how Lawrence is going to get even better ahead of the 2023 season. He better figure out something because that first-place AFC schedule is going to be very difficult.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have an absolute stud under center going forward.
On Tuesday, FS1’s Colin Cowherd ranked the top ten quarterbacks in the NFL according to himself. Where he placed Trevor Lawrence is very exciting but also borderline shocking because the Jaguars now have one of these types of talents under center for once.
Cowherd named Patrick Mahomes the number one guy in the league as he should have. Mahomes beat Lawrence in the playoffs en route to winning his second Super Bowl. This is a special talent in every way. Having him in the way is an issue for the Jags going forward.
At number two came Joe Burrow who Lawrence has battled with at the college level (Burrow was at LSU for some of Lawrence’s Clemson tenure). This is a great ranking for Burrow and well deserved. He will be a champion in this league one day soon as well.
Then Lawrence was named by Cowherd at three. That is ahead of guys like Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Justin Herbert, and Aaron Rodgers amongst others. This is incredible for Lawrence as he is finally getting the national NFL recognition he deserves.
Now, Lawrence must play well going forward to stay on this list. One great division comeback victory isn’t going to get him more developed for the future.
They need to have a big off-season to make sure that this Jaguars team is ready to go. With the coach that they have and the players they have returning, it is very possible that he remains a top-three QB for a very long time. The arm talent and ability elsewhere is there for him.
