“A quarterback like Trevor Lawrence, as a rookie, I think it’s not going to be like playing with a normal rookie quarterback. I think the type of player that (Lawrence) is, he is ahead of the curve and I think he’ll be a dynamic player on the next level. Just because he has escape ability when things don’t add up with his eyes, he can use his legs.”

Jacksonville Jaguars on the come-up?

Trent Williams believes that the Jacksonville Jaguars can turn their fortunes around going forward.

“I do think that people could look at Jacksonville as a rebuild, but with them getting a quarterback, that could expedite their success level and their success rate. I think by them kind of flushing everybody out the last few years and getting rid of a lot of contracts that was coming and contracts they took on, getting flexibility in the draft. When you look at that, they’ve been through their rebuild and now they are about to reap the benefits.”
