Tanking for Trevor Lawrence is already becoming a thing and it just seems inevitable at this point that the QB will end up in Charlotte.
Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is the hottest name in the country coming into the 2020 season.
Lawrence is considered the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft and we’re already hearing of potential franchise who might tank to get a shot at selecting the talented quarterback, even though the 2020 NFL Draft hasn’t even taken place yet.
Of course, it should be noted that Lawrence technically has two years of eligibility remaining, but he is set to graduate in December and is expected to declare for the draft following this season.
Though many NFL organizations would like the opportunity to have Trevor Lawrence behind center, it almost seems like destiny that Lawrence would end up with the Carolina Panthers.
Bleacher Report Analyst Matt Miller said his sources have told him that the Panthers could be looking to make a big move in the 2021 NFL Draft.
"“Something I’ve said for months is that many sources around the league think the Panthers will attempt to ‘tank’ for Trevor Lawrence in the 2021 class,” Miller said. “Moves like this one [Panthers traded Trai Turner] make it hard to imagine they’re trying to win in 2020.”"
Doesn’t it just make sense that Trevor Lawrence will end up in Charlotte as the new quarterback of the Carolina Panthers?
The Panthers now have a new coach in Matt Rhule and the organization is attempt to put things in motion to make a run back at prominence in 2021. The first piece in that whole idea seems like it might be Trevor Lawrence.
Lawrence has already played two games in Bank of America Stadium- both in the ACC Championship- and has won both. He’ll likely make another trip to Charlotte this season in attempt to help lead the Tigers to their sixth-straight conference title.
It only makes sense that we’d see Lawrence become the QB of an organization with one of the closest ties to the Clemson football fanbase. Tiger fans would love to see him stay close by and, perhaps, lead the Panthers back to prominence.
Is it destiny? One could certainly make that argument at this point.
