Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence will be limited in rookie minicamp as he continues to make his way back from left (non-throwing) surgery in February, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lawrence is "doing well" in rehab and should be ready to go when training camp opens, Rapoport adds. This is a situation worth monitoring but shouldn't ultimately impact Lawrence's rookie campaign.
The Jaguars started rookie QB Trevor Lawrence in the preseason opener and plan to do so again Monday against the Saints, but OC Darrell Bevell says that doesn't mean they've decided on their regular-season starter. “We’re still going to handle it that way until we end up making the final decision,” Bevell said, via the Florida Times-Union. “Right now, they are still status quo. We’re trying to make everybody better. We want competition at each and every position. Both guys are getting better because of it.” It's still hard to imagine Jacksonville actually going with Minshew in the regular-season opener. But we have to consider it a possibility. We'll all be watching this situation over the next few weeks.
Jags rookie QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) will be a “full-go” for training camp, per NFL Network’s Judy Battista. "Remember they were holding him back a little bit in OTAs and minicamp because he was recovering from the offseason shoulder surgery," Battista said. "It was his non-throwing shoulder, so that's the good news, but they were still restricting him. No restrictions anymore when he gets to training camp. It is going to be full-go." The Jags open up training camp on the 27th.
The Jaguars selected Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence with the 1st pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s tough to say how long we’ve known this would be the pick. Lawrence spent at least all of the 2020 season as the presumptive #1 selection. With 36 starts across 3 years at Clemson, Lawrence enters the NFL long on experience. He racked up 90 TD passes vs. just 17 INTs with the Tigers and earned passing grades of 90+ from Pro Football Focus in each of his 3 seasons. Lawrence brings accuracy in throwing to every level and adds rushing upside. He topped out at 563 yards on the ground as a 2019 sophomore and punched in 17 TD runs over the past 2 years. With Jacksonville, Lawrence inherits a talented WR corps led by D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and free-agent addition Marvin Jones. Lawrence has the upside to crack the fantasy top 12 right away and should be a long-term factor for his fantasy teams.
