More To Come From Trevor Lawrence After Jaguars Debut

Despite a few hiccups, No. 1 draft pick Trevor Lawrence had an encouraging debut for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.

With head coach Urban Meyer telling Trevor Lawrence he isn’t guaranteed to start, he needed to distinguish himself.

He did just that by throwing for 74 yards, more than his competitor Gardner Minshew, who threw for 47. His 3-of-4 passes into tight windows equaled the best tight-window completion percentage by a Jacksonville quarterback in 2020.

Trevor Lawrence admitted he held onto the ball a little too much at times. However, he’s encouraged overall by his first appearance for the Jaguars.

“I asked [passing game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer] how he played, and he said he did pretty good,” coach Urban Meyer said. “I thought the ball to his left right in front of us, I think it was on third down, he really anticipated a nice out cut, scrambled and delivered a nice one to Marvin Jones.

“He certainly wasn’t awestruck. We’ve got to execute better. We’ve got to protect him better. And we’ve got to get all our wideouts healthy and just play better.”

“I feel like the first time out there, I felt comfortable, felt poised,” Lawrence said.

“Obviously, the first play’s not kind of what you want for the first play, but after that, I thought we did a good job. We communicated well up front. They did a really good job of protection. At least one of those sacks was on me, for sure, just holding the ball too long. That’s something I’ll work on. Just maneuvering in the pocket is something I’ve always got to work on.

“Other than that, I missed an easy one to Marvin, a little quick out I wish I would have hit. But other than that, I felt good out there. I think we were seeing it, all on the same page. There’s obviously things to clean up, but I thought it was a pretty good day.”
