Urban Meyer admitted that the Jacksonville Jaguars are likely to pick Trevor Lawrence.
Lawrence has long been considered the clear cut No. 1 prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft.
“I’d have to say that’s the direction we’re going,” Meyer told Peter King. “I’ll leave that up to the owner when we make that decision official. But I’m certainly not stepping out of line that that’s certainly the direction we’re headed.”
The Jaguars gave Gardner Minshew the chance to prove he could be the long-term starter last season, but he struggled after a good start in the first two weeks, hid a thumb injury from the staff and lost his job to rookie Jake Luton and eventually veteran Mike Glennon.
