This NFL writer says it’s time to jump on the Trevor Lawrence bandwagon.
Adam Schein, who has been a columnist for NFL.com since 2012, recently released a “Schein Nine” list of NFL trains to watch in 2022, naming the players, coaches and teams he thinks you should believe in for the future. upcoming season.
Lawrence is No. 2 on the roster, as the former Clemson star quarterback and 2021 first draft pick prepares for his second campaign with the Jacksonville Jaguars – under the guidance of a new staff led by the new head coach Doug Pederson, who of course was hired in February to replace the late Urban Meyer after Meyer was fired in December following a tumultuous 13-game tenure filled with drama on and off the field.
Here’s what Schein wrote about why people should jump on the Lawrence bandwagon this season:
Around this time last year, Lawrence was thought to be The Next Big Thing. Then Urban Meyer snuffed out the entire Jacksonville organization, simultaneously ruining the ultra-talented quarterback’s rookie campaign.
Well… Ding-dong, the witch is dead! In the wake of Meyer’s 13-game debacle, enter Doug Pederson. The former Eagles leader brings positivity, proven quarterback development experience and savvy chops. Oh, and a Super Bowl ring.
Lawrence has been billed as the next comer to John Elway and Andrew Luck – a dreamy prospect not to be missed at the game’s most important position. And I still believe that. Throw the first year out the window. Heading into Year 2, the Jags built the offense around Lawrence in free agency. Not to mention, Lawrence can get back on the court again with Travis Etienne, Clemson’s other first-rounder from Jacksonville who missed the entire 2021 season due to a Lisfranc injury.
Lawrence is special, and he will remind everyone of that in 2022.
Although Lawrence had his share of struggles as a rookie — he finished last season with a 59.6% completion percentage for 3,641 yards and 12 touchdowns with 17 interceptions — he also showed his potential in some moments during his first season in the NFL, including in the Jacksonville regular-season finale against the Indianapolis Colts when he completed 23 of 32 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns without interceptions while leading the Jaguars to a 26-11 win.
Schein is not alone in believing in Lawrence ahead of the next campaign. Former NFL player and scout Bucky Brooks considers Lawrence the most intriguing sophomore flagger in the NFL because of the potential jump he could make in 2022.
