    No way would be he be the #1 pick! He's good but gotta get bigger and stronger! Bama's D was suspect all year! Don't sip the kool aid! He may eventually be the #1 pick but not now! Haskins is better, Bosa will still be the #1 pick...

    Your body is still growing, getting bigger, getting stronger. I was much more physically stronger at 21 than 18 and 25 to 21. Put him in the NFL and one good sack from a guy twice his size his career is over.

    Hey. I'm posting this...not because of what was stated however because several analysis have stated the same thing. STOP encouraging teams to play for the No. 1 pick. In the words of Coach Herman Edwards, " you don't play for the No. 1 pick - YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME.!"
    Tanking games for top picks towards the end of the season - doesn't necessarily indicate an easier schedule going forward. The Texans only won 4 or 5 games in the 2017 - 2018 season. Their 2018 - 2019 schedule was tougher. Not only was a majority of the teams they played .500 or greater they played both Superbowl teams from the previous season.
    Okay you draft a great Quarterback - but at what cost.?
    Remember...there are alot of great quarterbacks...some are still on the field playing in today's game. Most of which who have yet to reach the Superbowl. With Philip Rivers
    being one of them...He now has the opportunity to become one of those players to not only reach the big stage but have a chance at a SuperBowl Championship victory as well.
    If these guys like Trevor, Zion, Murray, the list goes on - NFL-NBA-MLB - what have you - come up as available on your draft board on Draft Day - make the decision and take him. I don't own a team however I understand that you shouldn't put your team - organization - business at risk for the sake of drafting what one might think will be the GOAT. The reality is...he might not be and by playing for the No. 1 pick you very well may be placing your team - organization at the bottom of the division for seasons to come.

    I hate how y’all over hype players Trevor is a great player but let’s not forget. He plays on CLEMSON who was already a top 3 team in the country so stop acting like he deserves all the credit. 2. Clemson plays in the ACC the worst fucking football conference rn Clemson literally skated by playing trash teams all year and then they turn it on during the playoff so don’t act like Clemson was playing world beaters. And lastly he’s a freshman in football not basketball could he make a diff rn in the nfl yes but wouldn’t you want him to refine and hone his skills at the most important position on the field????

    Here’s an idea-let the kid enjoy his college experience and playing at the college level and then into three-especially three years-let him decide, not you, and if he wants to go onto the NFL or not. Can he not enjoy the moment without you guys putting pressure on him to do things like this?He’s 19-20 years old let him enjoy college and playing college football pros can wait

    I disagree. Even if he he is ready skill-wise, not being eligible due to age is EXACTLY, the only reason the NFL is still better than MLB and the NBA.

    I saw nothing he did as spectacular, he made 3 nice throws all night and two of those his reciever made an outstanding catch or it would have been incomplete. The long passes one the DB fell down and reciever was wide open, the other the reciever was 10 yards behind DB. Seriously Tua's first TD pass was the best ball thrown all night.

    He needs another year of growth (football confidence) & maturity. He’s too young, could we please allow this “kid” to enjoy being a college QB? Overall, why are most people rushing our kids into adulthood before they’ve had the chance to enjoy childhood, teenager, etc.

    There is no doubt that Trevor Lawrence is an extremely talented QB.
    I have seen many talented QB's ruined by less than talented coaches in the NFL.
    An 18 year old isn't ready for the complexity of running an NFL offense.
    He had a great season and did things no other freshman QB has done.
    The one thing not mentioned is that he didn't do it alone, great coaching and 10 other offensive players contributed to his success.
    Let the kid play and enjoy his college career, a great NFL career is only a couple years away.

    Can I just say these guys are idiots. The things said in this video are so stupid. Really,"the draft eligibility rules are unfair" I don't care who you are a sophomore in high school going from other kids hitting him from Khalil Mack and von miller and JJ watt and Aaron Donald and other GROWN MEN HITTING THEM no. This isn't basketball it's football we're if you don't hit the other team and hit them hard to get them to the ground your cut so no the rules need to stay the same.

    Without even watching the video I’m saying the guy is wrong lol. Football players and their understanding of the game is way different than basketball players in regards to being ready to go pro. High school to college is very similar for basketball, but football schemes etc are way more complex on the college level and even more so in the pros.

    College is different than the pros, so if he needs more experience, staying in college is irrelevant.
    So and so only stayed in the league for a few years and he was 19. The NFL average is 3 years so, 18 - 22 what difference does it make when you wash out?
    The league is safer than ever or 300+ lbs grown men are going to kill him. Tom Brady is 6’4” 225 and he’s not mauled or dead. Trevor is 6’6” 215lbs, I think he’ll be fine.
    The naysayers of one and done football players is circumstantial at best and misguided.
    I’d rather them put the wear and tear on their bodies and get PAID for it than RISK having career ending injuries for nothing.

    Honestly I don't know if he is better than Haskins now, but if he could out you would get a younger qb, who is 3 inches taller, so I could totally see why he would be the 1st qb chosen. It's kind of like in the NBA when teams draft some Freshman just because they are young and have a ton of potential.

    He played great, but was not the reason Clemson won. That defense and his receivers won the game. His receivers were way too quick for Bama and made it easy for him.

      Your right in the sense that had Tua been Clemson's QB Clemson would still have beat Bama (who had another TUA). Your wrong in the sense that Clemson would have won playing Kelly Bryant. Lawrence is an elite QB regardless of who his supporting cast is but he needs the supporting cast to showcase his talents.
