Editor’s Note: We got the first pro-day of the 2021 NFL draft season on the books, and it was a big one. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence – the alleged Jaguars’ first choice – led on Friday in the hall of the Tigers in front of the new head coach of Jacksonville, Urban Meyer, and representatives of 16 other NFL teams a training with 52 throws by

With a nudge from Meyer, Lawrence stopped his workout a month before Clemson’s official pro-day, giving himself more time to recover from the planned surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder, the labral injury didn’t stop him to impress on Friday, and the expectation is that he is ready to get to training camp

After you’ve been given the opportunity to watch his throwing session and conduct analysis during the NFL Network’s Path to the Draft special presented by Verizon, here are some takeaways from our former Scouts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah:

Bucky: From a competitive standpoint, it has to be impressed that Lawrence was ready to come out and throw on Friday.He didn’t need that session to prove he was worthy of the Draft’s top pick, but he chose to To put himself there, even with shoulder surgery in his future, that only confirms what we’ve already heard about him as a competitor. He is poised to be the face of the franchise for a long time to come

DJ: I have to agree, Bucky Lawrence went out today and showed me everything I needed to see It was crispy and he threw some nice deep balls There were maybe a throw or two in the red zone that he missed but overall, he has done everything possible to maintain his status as a Top Prospect in this draft

Bucky: This is a rare player.He is tall and athletic with tremendous arm talent.He has a victorious pedigree that took Clemson to the college football playoff all three seasons and took home a national title as a true freshman when I look at Trevor Lawrence me him as Justin Herbert-plus he’s everything the NFL offensive rookie of 2020 was, but I think Lawrence is an even more dynamic playmaker

DJ: I described Lawrence as Deshaun Watson in Herbert’s body, but Herbert is a lot fatter right now.The fact that Lawrence weighed 213 pounds per day might for people who expected him to be closer to 230 pounds Coming up, be a bit of a surprise we have to keep in mind that he was exercising today instead of a month from now so that he can have surgery soon.It looks like he probably couldn’t lift his upper body much as he prepares to do this Doing shoulder work which explains the lighter weight I think Lawrence can easily carry 230 pounds and I expect him to add a couple of pounds once he gets well

Of course, we can’t lose sight of the fact that this was a pro day and Lawrence went on the air.No passover rush came after him.No one can deny his rare combination of height, athletic ability and poor talent, but I want to that he works more efficiently under pressure than the last time we saw him in a game setting (Clemson’s College Football Playoff loss to Ohio state) He can execute every throw with accuracy but needs to improve his pocket awareness He doesn’t always feel the pressure on the back and has to accelerate his watch against the pressure on the front

Bucky: Some people will even fall back on his post-season performance a year ago when he only made 51 percent of his passes against Ohio State and LSU in the playoffs I understand the concern, but I think we’re maturing right now of a quarterback dealing with the complexities of a defense and late changing reporting Like most young quarterbacks, he will have some mounting pain in this area as he moves up to the next level

DJ: Overall we agree that the box was checked today.He showed he is the same one we saw on tape He can do any kind of throw He is a top notch talent who is the No. 1 is worthy of 1 total selection

Bucky: No question about it, DJ He’ll be first choice He’s got everything you are looking for in the position He has all the tools you want to see athletic To top it off, he’s a great leader and a winner, just that would like to have every franchise in a QB1
