Clemson Tigers star Trevor Lawrence goes all out in front of Urban Meyer

The Jaguars own the first-overall pick for this year’s NFL Draft. The fact that newly-appointed HC Urban Meyer was present at Clemson’s Pro Day will spark rumors that the legendary college football coach intends on drafting Lawrence as the number one overall pick in two months’ time.

Trevor Lawrence was diagnosed with a torn labrum in his left shoulder earlier this month. Reports indicated that Lawrence had refused to throw for NFL scouts due to his latest injury.

However, he later stated that he would still throw in front of professional league scouts ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. Despite his strong display in the last three years, there is no guarantee that Lawrence will be picked first.
