NFL-Jaguars select quarterback Lawrence with top pick in quarterback-stacked NFL Draft

(Reuters) -The Jacksonville Jaguars selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first pick of the NFL Draft on Thursday in Cleveland, Ohio, as fans were welcomed back to the event a year after COVID-19 forced it to go a virtual format. The 21-year-old Lawrence, who finished as runner-up in voting for the Heisman Trophy awarded to college football’s most outstanding player, was the consensus top pick for the struggling Jaguars, which went 1-and-15 last season. “I’m going to put the work in, I’m going to do what it takes,” Lawrence, who led Clemson to three straight ACC championship titles, told reporters.
