Former Clemson football quarterback Trevor Lawrence couldn’t lead his team past the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL Playoffs, but he did end his season on a positive note, as he was named to the 2023 Pro Bowl Games.
The Jaguars made remarkable progress in Lawrence’s 2nd season, going from a 3-14 disaster to a 9-8 season, AFC South Division Championship and a Wild Card win in the playoffs against the Tennessee Titans, before falling to the Chiefs.
Lawrence completed 387 of 584 passes for 4,113 yards and 25 touchdowns and ran for 5 more scores on the season.
The 387 completions are a Jaguars franchise record.
There is no longer a game for players selected as Pro Bowlers, but rather it’s skills challenges that will take place in Las Vegas beginning on Thursday, February 2, and ends with a seven versus seven Flag football game at Allegiant Stadium.
After being the No. 1 recruit in the 2018 recruiting class out of Cartersville High School in Georgia, Lawrence led Clemson to the 2018 National Championship as the Tigers crushed Alabama 44-16.
After three seasons at Clemson Lawrence was the No. 1 overall pick of the Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft.
At Clemson, Lawrence completed 758 of 1,138 passes (66.6%) for 10,098 yards and 90 touchdowns, with only 17 interceptions, while rushing for another 943 yards and 18 touchdowns.
Lawrence finished 7th in Heisman voting in 2018 and 2nd in 2020.
In two seasons with Jacksonville, Lawrence has completed 62.9% of his 1,186 attempts for 7,754 yards, 32 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.
Former Clemson football quarterback finds himself as the face of an up and coming NFL team after two seasons
In general, the Jaguars are seen as a team of the future, with Lawrence still having years on his rookie contract, the emergence of his former Clemson teammate Travis Etienne and a corps of young skill players and a player friendly coaching staff led by Dough Pederson.
After having the top pick in the last 2 NFL Drafts, Jacksonville will pick No. 24 this season, which shows just how much they improved from last season.
Overall, Jacksonville has 9 picks in the upcoming draft.
