Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is the presumptive No. 1 overall pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft, but drew criticism recently with his apparent attitude toward football, which was construed as somewhat aloof by some.
In case there were any doubts about his commitment to the sport, or desire to be great, Lawrence clarified his mindset on social media, hinting that some of his words were taken out of context from a recent feature by Sports Illustrated‘s Michael Rosenberg:
It didn’t seem entirely necessary for Lawrence to do this. No matter what, Urban Meyer and the Jaguars aren’t going to pass him up at first overall in the draft. He’s a generational quarterback prospect and maybe the best one in NFL Draft history.
But in case anyone outside of Jacksonville’s fan base or organization was concerned about how the uber-hyped QB would fare as he takes the next step to the pro game, Lawrence answered the criticism anyway.
