The Potential is There: Trevor Lawrence’s Unfulfilled Promise

 

Trevor Lawrence burst onto the scene as a highly touted prospect from Clemson. His transition to the NFL hasn’t been without challenges, including turnovers. Lawrence was drafted first overall in 2021 with sky-high expectations. He possesses a rare combination of size, arm strength, and athleticism. However, his rookie season fell short of those expectations, raising questions about his immediate value on a “top-tier” contract.

Taking the Leap: Year Two is Crucial

While Lawrence flashed glimpses of brilliance in his first year, consistency remains a concern. The upcoming season will be a critical one for him. A significant leap in performance will strengthen his case for a lucrative contract extension.

Earning His Stripes: The Quarterback Market

The quarterback position is the most valuable in the NFL, and elite quarterbacks command top dollar. However, young quarterbacks like Lawrence haven’t yet proven themselves as consistent game-changers. He’ll need to establish himself amongst the league’s elite before warranting a contract in that top tier.
