After leading Clemson to a national title in his freshman season, Trevor Lawrence was dubbed the next generational talent at quarterback. He’s still a year away from being draft eligible, but it appears he already has a few suitors.
Lawrence threw for 3,665 yards and 36 touchdowns during his sophomore season. The first loss of his collegiate career came to the hands of Joe Burrow, who is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
While it’s obviously unclear how the draft order will play out for the 2021 NFL Draft, it’s never too early to tell which teams could be essentially tanking this fall.
The Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots have been linked to Lawrence in recent weeks, but neither team is at the top of the leaderboard for the Clemson signal-caller.
According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Tanier, the only “true tanking contenders” for Lawrence are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins.

It’s hard to find the words to sum up this year, but I’ll keep it short. I’m thankful for everyone and everything that has happened this season. It’s been challenging, unique, and a whole lotta fun. I’m so appreciative to this senior class and the 2 years I got to spend with them. I’m grateful to get to call my teammates family, because they really are. Adversity teaches and shows you who you really are. I thank God for teaching me more now than ever before. I’m also learning that life is mostly about how you respond, not what happens. So here’s to a heck of a year and lots of great memories. Clemson family, we love you. We will be back 🧡
Jacksonville doesn’t truly have a franchise quarterback on its roster. Sure, it’s fun to watch fans go crazy over Gardner Minshew, but there’s no guarantee he’s a game-changer in the NFL.
As for Washington, it’s very clear that Dwayne Haskins has to show some improvement this season. If Ron Rivera isn’t sold on Haskins by the end of this year, the Redskins could make a run after Lawrence.
Where do you think Lawrence will end up in 2021?
