It’s hard to go any direction other than Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence when talking about the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Even though Lawrence has played on two really great Clemson teams, he’s been a driving force for them even as a true freshman leading the Tigers to a national title.
Lawrence is generally considered the best quarterback prospect to come along since Andrew Luck, and in my eyes, he has the ceiling to be at least that good if not better in the NFL. If the Jaguars earn the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, they would have to move on to Lawrence from a guy I really like — Gardner Minshew.
Although the Jags have another first-round pick later on in this mock draft, their second-round pick is left tackle Samuel Cosmi. The Jags are going to need protection for Lawrence and 2017 second-round pick Cam Robinson is heading to free agency next offseason.
