Since the Jaguars wrapped up the No. 1 generally speaking pick in the current year’s draft, it has been an inescapable result that the club will utilize that determination on Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, a possibly generational ability. On the off chance that you needed considerably more proof that Jacksonville will make Lawrence the primary player to hear his name considered when the draft commences on April 29, you have it.
Lawrence went through a medical procedure to his left side (non-tossing) shoulder yesterday, yet to flaunt his capacities prior to going under the blade, he held an early ace day last Friday. What’s more, as John Reid of the Florida Times-Union composes, new Jaguars lead trainer Urban Meyer was instrumental in bringing that master day about.
When he heard a little over a week ago that Lawrence would need surgery, Meyer said he had a number of phone calls with his future quarterback. “We did a Zoom call with him, and I asked him – there are three choices you have. No. 1, you can wait until March 11 Pro Day – but now you are getting near August [for a recovery time],” Meyer said. “That’s getting late because it’s a five-month recovery. It’s a six-month injury. The second thing, you can not throw.”
In spite of the fact that Lawrence didn’t actually have anything to demonstrate, he didn’t care for the subsequent choice. He needed to have an exhibit, yet he concurred with Meyer that holding up until the March 11 master day — which would mean postponing his medical procedure until at some point after March 11 — would drive his recuperation excessively far into the late spring. So at that point, as Meyer related, “I said why don’t you just grab the ball and go throw for a little bit? I’d like to send our coordinator and passing-game coordinator to watch. They’ve never seen him. I’ve seen him, so he said, ‘Let’s go.’”
Lawrence was typically splendid at his expert day, so regardless of whether the Jags had any inquiries concerning his capacities, they presumably don’t currently. Alongside Meyer, hostile facilitator Darrell Bevell and passing-game organizer Brian Schottenheimer were in participation. Jacksonville is presumably still a year or two away from season finisher conflict, yet the assumption is that having Lawrence under focus will quicken the group’s reconstruct a considerable amount.
