When it comes to the NFL Draft, there can be discussions about who'll go first overall and whether or not the team at No. 1 even knows who they're selecting yet.
That's not the case with this year's draft as the Jacksonville Jaguars have all but officially announced that they'll be taking Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first overall selection.
That notion became even more clear when NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport confirmed that the Jaguars have already sent Lawrence their playbook and want to know his thoughts on it before the 2021 NFL season begins.
A lot of the time, new quarterbacks will be brought on to a team and be expected to adapt to a new playbook without any questions asked. In this case, the Jaguars are showing that they value Lawrence's opinion, especially if they're going to build their team around him for the next decade and beyond.
Lawrence ended up playing 40 games across three seasons for Clemson. At the end of his collegiate career, he recorded 10,098 passing yards and 90 touchdowns to 17 interceptions on a 66.6 passing percentage.
Lawrence also proved that he could be mobile when needed, adding 943 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns on 231 attempts. To top it off, he's also won multiple awards in college, ranging from All-ACC honors to three ACC Championships, to a National Championship back in 2018.
While Jaguars fans have been disappointed with the team's success over the years, getting Lawrence's opinion on the playbook is a step in the right direction. It means that not only is the team willing to build around him, but it shows that the Jaguars want to do what it takes to make him comfortable. Only time will tell if that pays off in the end.
