Lawrence, Not so Fast!

Recommended Posts

Isn't this interesting.  Gist of article is Lawrence is no longer the best QB coming out this year.  I have no idea.  This could be a good thing because now the jets won't be locked into keeping the top pick if there are equally good prospects lower in the first round.

Trevor Lawrence No Longer Heisman Favorite, Won’t Play Against Notre Dame

Alabama's Mac Jones and Ohio State's Justin Fields are now both ahead of the Clemson QB

Despite playing well in his six starts for Clemson this season, quarterback Trevor Lawrence is no longer the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy this season, according to ESPN.

Though the odds are slightly different depending on the sportsbook, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields are now both favored to win the Heisman over Lawrence.

The odds-on favorite to win the award before the season and the presumptive No. 1 pick in the next NFL draft, Lawrence missed Saturday’s game against unranked Boston College after testing positive for COVID-19 and has already been ruled out for this week’s game at No. 4 Notre Dame.

The junior quarterback, who expressed some uncertainty about leaving school for the draft last month, has completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 1,833 yards with 17 touchdowns and two interceptions this season.

Without Lawrence under center, the Tigers were able to beat Boston College 34-28. The Tigers were favored to win by more than 20 points so the six-point margin of victory speaks to how much Clemson missed their star signal-caller.

D.J. Uiagalelei started for the Tigers in Lawrence’s absence and is expected to start again at Notre Dame this week.

As part of the ACC’s return-to-play protocols, Lawrence must pass a series of cardiac exams before getting back on the field and there simply won’t be enough time to pass all the tests in time for Saturday’s game against the Fighting Irish, according to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.

“You have to ramp back up, even if he feels great, he could probably go play, he’s not allowed to do that simply because of the protocols,” Swinney said. “They’re put in place to make sure he could return to play safely. You have 10 days, and then you have the cardiac part, so he won’t be able to get through that in time to play next week.”

I really don't see how COVID causing him to miss two games lowers his draft standing at all.  If 2 weeks ago he was the best to come out since Luck then he still is now, Heisman or no Heisman.

Tim Tebow might have beat Lawrence out for the heisman if were playing today.  Would that mean he’d be a better pro as well?

If Lawrence doesn't go first in draft and has intact ACLs and isn't up on murder charges -- I'll lifestream naked during week 1 of 2021 season.

Well now I know which way I'm rooting.

I'm guessing Trevor's camp is putting out a lot of disinformation to try and dissuade the Jets FO to go another direction.

If we're the 1st pick, it's got to be TL.

The good news is if Trevor pulls an Eli it'll seriously hurt his humble image.

How on earth did you deduce this from the article?

yeah, i guess you're right.  i don't think i actually want a heisman winner at qb.  sure there's jackson but then there are guys like toretta or huarte who had no business being in the nfl.

Quoted for accuracy at a later date.

it kind of depends.  not so much for qb's but it does seem to work out pretty well for running backs.  another point is maybe not winning will cause him to not  want to try for it next season  thereby declaring for the draft.

Lawrence is still the #1 prospect.

Lawrence has been overrated by this fan base thinking he is 100% generational can't miss.

Other QBs are closer to him than people think.

It doesn’t say anyone is better than him why are you making this up?  
It says he’s not the favorite for the Heisman because he’s missing games.  For COVID

Cant make it up

But this is feeling like the Peyton Manning / Ryan Leaf situation.  In hindsight, it was a no-brainer and obviously Manning was a far superior QB to Leaf who busted out of the League in just a couple years.  But at the time, if you remember, there was actually some significant discussion about whether Leaf was better.  Perhaps it was manufactured by the media to drum up drama, intrigue and interest in the Draft but it really shouldn't have been close.

I wonder if it's similar this year.  Lawrence has been the can't-miss QB prospect for like 2 years now.  It's almost inevitable that people will talk up Fields or even Lance to stir some debate.

I'm not elevating other QBs I am downgrading Lawrence to some extent.   As I've said before the college playoff is very important this year.  This when you actually see teams with similar talent levels.  Lawrence was totally  owned by Joe Burrow last year.
