Standing at 6’6″ and weighing 220 pounds, Lawrence was drafted as the first overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft.
He took his first steps in the sport in Knoxville and he also tried his luck as a basketball player while studying at the Cartersville High School in Georgia, but Lawrence stood out as a quarterback, leading the Purple Hurricanes all the way to two State Championships and four Region Titles.
He was named The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Player of the Year in 2016 and one year later he broke the record for passing yards and passing touchdowns in Georgia.
According to Pro Football Reference, Lawrence registered 359 passes in 602 attempts with a completion percentage of 59.6 percent in his rookie NFL year. He also covered 3.641 yards for 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in the last regular season.
Meanwhile, Pro Football Focus has named Lawrence as their top second-year breakout candidate for the upcoming season, with new Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson raising expectations.
“That’s the goal, to make a significant jump in year two,” Pederson said.
“I think building off of last year, the fact that he played the entire season, we can build off that and really expect a sky’s the limit mentality with him.
“He’s in the same frame of mind as well. He wants to take that next step, not only in his growth but leading this football team.”
