We are officially 21 days away from the 2023 draft. Since we are 21 days away, I thought it would be a good time to look at the first five picks from the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2021 draft class’s performance during the 2022 regular season.
Round one, pick 1: Quarterback Trevor Lawrence
Trevor Lawrence showed a lot of growth and improvement from his rookie season. In 2021, he completed 359 out of 602 attempts for 3641 air yards, 12 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. In 2022, Lawrence completed 387 out of 584 attempts for 4113 air yards, 25 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. ESPN ranked him as number eight in their top ten MVP list for the 2022 season. He made his Pro Bowl debut and was voted as AFC Offensive Player of the Week twice, along with being nominated for FedEX Air Player of the Week twice.
