There have been moments in Jacksonville Jaguars’ history where they have had flashes of good play at the quarterback position but nobody is out here saying that they have had one of the all-time greats ever.
Here in 2023, however, they might have someone who is good enough to get themselves into that stratosphere. Trevor Lawrence is so good that he could be a top-five quarterback right now. Even if that is pushing it at this moment in time, he has a great chance to be considered after next year.
Lawrence made the Pro Bowl this year as an injury replacement but there are some really elite quarterbacks at the top of the AFC. The only ones in this conference (and maybe even the league) that are definitively better are Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, and Josh Allen.
Trevor Lawrence could find himself amongst them in the court of public opinion a year from now which would just be so incredible for the Jaguars. Those are the kinds of quarterbacks that you win Super Bowls with.
Trevor Lawrence can become one of the best quarterbacks in the entire league.
Right now, he still has a lot of room to grow but developing into one of the best in the world is certainly possible. Then, if he kept that up, we could be talking about an all-time great. That is what the Jaguars envisioned when they took him with the first overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.
It would be nice to see the organization continue to put its best foot forward. They almost messed this whole thing up with Urban Meyer but they saved it with Doug Pederson. Now, it is about getting him some more help across the field in the upcoming off-season.
They might want to consider bringing back Evan Engram who is a free agent as that would really help Lawrence. We’ve seen how tight ends can impact offenses for the better across the league. With some of the receivers they have returning in 2023, this could be a great unit to watch.
The 2023 NFL Draft is also a way for the team to find some help. There are really good options that they consider based on their needs by the time they reach that day. All in all, the team will go where Trevor Lawrence takes them which could be very far.
