Ahead of his second straight appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, Clemson Tigers' star quarterback Trevor Lawrence has reportedly taken out a massive disability insurance policy on himself in order to protect his financial future in the event of an injury between now and the 2021 NFL Draft.

Lawrence is regarded as one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, and he evened opened as a favorite to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy at the beginning of his sophomore season. While he did not take home the Heisman this year, he has the opportunity to win his second National Championship in as many seasons, and he still hasn't lost a game at the collegiate level.

The Clemson quarterback has one more season of college football left before he is eligible to enter the NFL Draft, and he would be regarded as one of the top prospects if he were to enter the draft today.

If Lawrence is unable to play in the NFL due to an injury, he now has a $5 million insurance policy that covers permanent total disability. This is a smart way for the quarterback to hedge his financial future, practically ensuring he becomes a millionaire one way or another.

After what happened to Alabama Crimson Tide star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in a season-ending hip injury earlier this year, we could start to see a lot more younger star players taking our insurance policies like this one.
