Trevor Lawrence casually walked into ESPN’s Marty Smith’s live shot ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Ever since the start of the 2021 season, the talk has been surrounding which lucky team would land the first-overall pick in the NFL Draft to earn the right to select Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
That organization is the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it is basically a foregone conclusion that Lawrence will be heading to the Sunshine State for the start of his professional career.
Lawrence won’t be in attendance for the draft festivities, instead, he’ll be spending it at home in Clemson, South Carolina with 60 of his closest friends and family.
ESPN’s Marty Smith was reporting live from the Lawrence residence during a live spot for the network, and the consensus first-overall pick casually walked right into the shot to hug the reporter!

As you can tell, Lawrence is not nervous about his big day. Why would he be? He is going to be the first pick of the event!
Throughout the NFL season, it was a competition between the New York Jets and the Jaguars to see who would “win” the Lawrence sweepstakes by losing the most games. All it took was New York securing an upset win over the playoff-bound Los Angeles Rams late in the season for the Jaguars to clinch the No. 1 spot.
Lawrence joins the likes of Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck as once-in-a-generation, can’t-miss quarterback prospects. He made an immediate impact his first year, as he helped the Tigers defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide to win the CFP National Championship. That, and he did nothing but win games with Clemson as their starting quarterback.
With his collegiate career over, Lawrence will look to make a similar impact with the Jaguars, whom they hope will be the face of their franchise for years to come and to play a pivotal role in the organization reaching the Super Bowl for the first time in their existence.
