What a collegiate career Lawrence had. As alluded to earlier, over his career, Lawrence has thrown for over 10,000 yards, 90 touchdowns with only 17 interceptions.
Where to start? Lawrence has a perfect frame for the position, able to stand tall in the pocket. More importantly, has a good head and able to show intelligence and leadership on the field. Able to keep his feet moving in the pocket to allow the play to develop, and able to avoid rushing defenders. Identifies defensive schemes well pre-snap, or if not, he makes adjustments quickly. Gets through his reads well, and doesn’t panic in looking for a cheap check-down.
Has great arm strength and accuracy, so able to get the ball to an open receiver wherever they are on the field. His arm control and vision allow him to be able to put extra arc on the ball or squeeze it into a tight gap. Has good speed if he is forced out of the pocket.
Don’t overthink these. They are not traits that display themselves too often.
Can sometimes believe in himself too much, either exiting the pocket early, or forcing a deep throw that isn’t open (especially if he is forced outside the pocket)
Post Draft Analysis
Round 1. Pick 1.
Jacksonville completed their tanking mission and selected the generational talent of Lawrence. The team has talent on offense, and now has a player that can lead them. Lawrence is going to be a talent in the league for years.
Should be the 1.01 in Superflex leagues, and depending on your roster strongly considered in the first round in 1QB leagues.
