On Friday morning, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the expected first overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, celebrated his pro day for scouts and evaluators. I had a chance to be there and watch him throw 52 pitches and have a little chat with him after training.
The 6-foot-6, 213-pound junior quarterback opted to have the session before surgery on his left labrum, his non-throwing shoulder. The procedure is not expected to affect his availability for the start of training camp in July. Among the 16 NFL teams in attendance on Friday were the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have a chance to select Lawrence No. 1 this April.
These are some of my big takeaways from the pro day training and what’s next for the talented quarterback.
