The Jacksonville Jaguars will hope that the arrival of Trevor Lawrence will turn the franchise around after an abysmal 2020 season. And even though he hasn’t played a single snap in pros yet, but is already receiving high praise from his teammate Joe Schobert.
The Trevor Lawrence era in Jacksonville officially began after they drafted the Clemson QB first overall in the 2021 draft. The highest graded QB since Andrew Luck is only 1 OTA and minicamp into his NFL career but is already making waves with his teammates. And it’s safe to say Lawrence’s teammates are impressed by what they’ve seen during the offseason program.

Joe Schobert believes Trevor Lawrence will be very successful in his career
The Jaguars added Joe Schobert from Cleveland last offseason and is one of several veteran Jaguars players who has spoken positively about the talent the first overall pick has shown so far.
“Trevor’s got an arm — a once in a generation arm — and if he can put it together upstairs mentally for the rookie season in the NFL, which is always, as a quarterback, the hardest thing to do, we’ll be very successful if we can get all that accomplished,” Schobert said during a radio interview with SiriusXM.
“I mean, as a rookie coming into the NFL, I know I definitely wasn’t that confident,” Schobert said. “I was looking up to my veterans, trying to soak up all the information, which he has been very respectful in asking questions. He comes in with a certain poise and a certain caliber, which I expect quarterbacks really should believe in themselves because they play in such a high-stress environment and they’re the ones who get critiqued and judged the most on the football field.
