On a blatant orange evening in Santa Clara, California, the future marching orders of the NFL – Tank for Tua – were rigorously cleared for Tank for Trevor. Or, if you prefer, to lose for Lawrence. What a fascinating next two years will be when he observes Trevor Lawrence, when he reached the summit at the age of 19, advanced or declined or prospered, or plateau.
Lawrence did not lead Clemson with a breathtaking 44-16 to the national championship Beatdown of Alabama – may this sentence ever be written – Beatdown of Alabama ? Guide is much too moderate as a characteristic for the statuesque pocket quarterback – is not this a nice throwback concept? ̵
Now that good old Eli is injected into all this, you have to wonder what the Giants trusted when Lawrence Alabama's earlier announced Tua Tagovailoa was outwitted quarterbacks in a rare battle of undefeated undermanned classmates. Those who are tired of raiding Manning now and ready to drop Manning can argue that this is the best course of action for the Giants. Last time, though, we've verified that the Giants actually need a real live quarterback in 2019, and unfortunately we know that it can not be Tagovailoa (the supposed number 1 in 2020) or Lawrence (unless something crazy happens , the top pick in 2021).
If you look at this potential in the main position of the game, it is difficult to lower expectations and decide what to serve. There is a difference between a $ 75 steak at Del Frisco and a $ 15 special (including potatoes and vegetables!) From the local restaurant. They will both fill you up, but the experience is not the same.
Are there any doubts that Lawrence would be the # 1 overall on April 25th if he could participate in this draft? As a true freshman, he does not have to wait one, but two more years. A player must be three years out of high school before he can go to the NFL, a rule established by the NFL and the NFL Players Association, which is supported by the NCAA. In general, it is a solid attitude. Teenagers, no matter how talented they are, do not have to be directed to the NFL, an adult league. Does Lawrence look like he can handle it? Yes, as far as the skills are concerned. Would his flowing blond curls replace Odell Beckham Jr.'s blond dyeing, as is the rage in NFL circles? For sure.
It's not like Lawrence is a shooting star. For some reason, he was the top rated high school quarterback in every corner of the scouting world. What he did to a Nick Saban team is something different. Perhaps his most impressive moment was after all of his 347 yards and three touchdowns. Not long after the clock ran out, he was asked how many championships he still runs at Clemson. He smiled, calculating quickly and saying, "Probably three more, hopefully."
This is wishful thinking for the tiger fans. If Lawrence is on campus in three years, something went wrong on his rise.
For every exception life could make as a professional, there would be those who are swallowed and spat out. So make Trevor Lawrence in South Carolina for more glory. The last time we checked, the NFL goes nowhere, and the market for first-class quarterbacks will always be robust.
Gil Brandt, former Cowboys vice president for player staff, still has a keen sense of who the top talent is and where to go. He picked up Twitter to announce this:
"Trevor Lawrence is the best real freshman I've ever seen. If I ran an NFL team, I would complete trades for so many 2021 picks that I could get my hands on. "
In 2012, luck came into the league, and Dan Shonka, national scout and general manager at Ourlads & # 39 ;, The Post Lawrence said it was the best quarterback prospectus in the last seven years, since Luck. The top rated quarterback this year is Dwayne Haskins, a prolific student (50 touchdown passes this season), who started only 14 games in Ohio State and will be a polarizing player as every number and nuance in the coming weeks and Months is examined.  The Giants own the # 6 and must actually trade in a poor quality class for quarterbacks if they want Haskins, who has received a low first or second round from several scouts. Talent scouts contacted the post office. By contrast, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and Josh Allen, who were all on the board when the # 2 Giants picked Saquon Barkley in 2018, were all rated higher-quality prospects.
Giants want a quarterback when there will be more next year? "Said Shonka. "They need a big pass rusher and will get one at # 6."
From the Scout's point of view, it is easy to fall in love with Tagovailoa or Lawrence. At least they can not get the giants yet. As the song says, waiting is sometimes the hardest part.
