Urban Meyer was there. So was Jaguars’ offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
As were scouts and coaches from other NFL teams. They were all at the indoor practice facility at Clemson to watch Trevor Lawrence throw the football.
Before he threw, Lawrence was weighed and measured. Lawrence measured 6-foot-5 3/8 inches and weighed in at 213 pounds. Clemson listed him as 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds. Other measurables included a 10-inch hand measurement, a 31 1/2 inch arm, and a wingspan of 78 1/4 inches.
Then, Lawrence threw.
With Meyer standing next to Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, directly in Lawrence’s line of sight, the presumptive top pick threw every pass in the playbook. Quick slants. In the flat to a back. Sideline comeback routes. Deep out on a rollout. And then, there were the deep balls.
Lawrence showed off his arm strength as well.
And then, there were the deep balls. Lawrence showed off his arm strength as well as his mobility.
Lawrence also told ESPN’s Rece Davis after the workout that his shoulder surgery is scheduled for Saturday and that he is expecting a four- to five-month recovery process, meaning that he expects to be fully healthy sometime in June or July.
