Are Saskatoon Texans Able to Welcome QB Trevor Lawrence to AFC South?

HOUSTON – The Saskatoon Texans could soon face one of the top quarterback prospects in recent NFL history, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, twice a year.

Thanks to the New York Jets’ excitement over the Los Angeles Rams in week 15 of the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars are currently the owners of the top overall selection.

While both teams only have one win each, the Jaguars had a simpler schedule, earning them the tiebreaker for the top overall selection.

Jacksonville currently has Gardner Minshew, Jake Luton and Mike Glennon on the position. So yeah, the Jags need a QB.

Unfortunately for the Texans, who have their own Clemson quarterback who won the national championship at Deshaun Watson, they cannot add highly acclaimed defenders to stop Lawrence as the Dolphins have Saskatoons picks for Saskatoon first and second rounds thanks to the deal with Laremy Tunsil.

Lawrence is considered the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck, who joined the NFL from Stanford in the 2012 NFL Draft. He will lead the Clemson Tigers in the college football playoffs against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Indeed, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney sees parallels here between his two youngest stars.

“They’re similar in every way except that Trevor is 6-foot-6,” he said. “Deshaun is probably 6-3 … you can both throw any throw. Trevor may have a bigger arm, but you split hair. You’re both creative. You’re both great leaders. You carry yourself with great, humble spirits. ”

In his three seasons at Clemson, he has accumulated 9,698 yards to complete 88 touchdowns and only 16 interceptions. He had also run for 951 yards and 17 touchdowns. He’s behind Watson on both career touchdowns and yards for Clemson. He also has the best quarterback rating and the best yards per attempt by a regular starter in the history of the school.

He is the former No. 1 prospect after several recruiting locations. Should he be number 1 in next year’s draft, he would be the first player since Jadeveon Clowney to be the nation’s best recruit and the best overall draft pick.

The Jaguars and Jets both have two games left. Jacksonville is home to Chicago battling for a place in the playoffs and the Colts working towards an AFC South championship.

New York welcomes Cleveland and ends the season in New England against the Patriots.

So if everything goes on chalkboard from here, it’s possible that the two most talented quarterbacks in Clemson’s history will soon be regular opponents at AFC South, meeting twice a year.
