This is probably the least surprising announcement of the beginning of the year 2021. After a superb university career, ended a few days ago with a defeat in the semi-finals of the playoffs, Trevor Lawrence announced this Wednesday that he is a candidate for the next NFL Draft.
In a video posted on Twitter, the quarterback thanked Clemson University, his coaches, his teammates and everyone who helped him.
He now arrives in the big league with the label of a generational talent and expectations probably not seen since Andrew Luck in 2012.
The Jaguars hold the first choice of the Draft and seem destined to select it.
Lawrence completed 66.6% of his passes with the Tigers. He threw 90 touchdowns for just 17 interceptions, with 18 touchdowns scored on the ground as a bonus. All this in just 40 games.
Thank you, Clemson … pic.twitter.com/JDbM8aYYGv
