If there was any lingering doubt about the Jaguars‘ plans with the No. 1 overall pick, they apparently were extinguished on Sunday, 11 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. Former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the consensus No. 1 pick, thanked Jaguars fans for their early support via social media, and also said he and his wife would give $20,000 to Jacksonville charities.
In the message, Lawrence also alluded to starting his NFL career with the Jaguars, who’ll have Urban Meyer as their first-year head coach. Meyer himself admitted that the Jaguars were heading in the direction of selecting Lawrence during an interview with NBC Sports Peter King late last month.
“Thank you Jaguars fans,” Lawrence wrote via Twitter. “We really appreciate the wedding gifts and donations for charities of our choice! In addition to the donations, Marissa and I will also be donating $20K to charities in Jacksonville. Thanks again, we hope to be a part of your community soon.”
