Trevor Lawrence

Trevor Lawrence gets married to longtime girlfriend Marissa Mowry

Trevor Lawrence will soon become the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, but that may not be the most exciting thing that happens to the star quarterback in 2021.

Lawrence and his longtime girlfriend Marissa Mowry got married over the weekend in South Carolina. The newlyweds both shared photos and videos from the big day on Instagram.

Lawrence proposed to Mowry less than a year ago on the field at Memorial Stadium. The two have now been together for about five years. A news anchor trolled Lawrence over the engagement, and the former Clemson star couldn’t resist firing back.

Between the marriage and soon being taken by the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 1 overall, 2021 is shaping up to be a great year for Lawrence.

Trevor Lawrence will not attend NFL Draft in Cleveland

Trevor Lawrence

Trevor Lawrence had the opportunity to attend the NFL Draft in person, but he’s passing on it.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lawrence declined the NFL’s invitation to attend the draft in Cleveland. Instead, the likely No. 1 pick will watch the draft at Clemson with select family and friends, which was his preference all along.

Unlike last year, there will be some in-person draft functions in Cleveland. It will be unusual, especially without the presumptive top pick there, but it seems likely some other prospects will probably attend.

Attending the draft can lead to some awkward moments if things don’t go as planned. That’s exceedingly unlikely for Lawrence, but he would rather just watch with his friends.

Trevor Lawrence posts photos showing his rehab from shoulder surgery

Trevor Lawrence is making his way back from his shoulder surgery.

Lawrence posted photos on his Instagram account Monday night. The photos show him doing some physical therapy-type of work. He appears to even be doing some weight work.

Lawrence underwent a procedure on his left shoulder in the middle of February. He was expected to have a 5-6 month recovery timeline.

Lawrence threw for scouts at Clemson’s Pro Day prior to getting the shoulder surgery. His performance at the Pro Day went well and should cement his status as one of the likely top picks in April’s draft.

Lawrence played three years at Clemson and passed for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He also rushed for 18 scores.

This is how Trevor Lawrence impressed scouts after his Pro Day workout

By all accounts, Trevor Lawrence was very impressive at his Pro Day on Friday, showing off a wide array of quarterback skills in front of NFL scouts. But it turns out it wasn’t just what he did on the field that impressed evaluators.

Lawrence made an impression even at the end of the workout, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB. When those who attended were leaving, Lawrence fist-bumped every NFL evaluator he saw, and even thanked them for coming. The scouts “took note of” this, according to Breer.

A Clemson staffer indicated that he wasn’t surprised by that, telling Breer that Lawrence “just gets it.”

Obviously, NFL scouts are looking for more than this. That said, the combination of talent and temperament is a rare thing, and it’s what all teams covet in quarterbacks. Lawrence was already great on the field Friday, and it seems he left a great impression off it, too. It’s easy to see why he’s almost certain to go first overall in the NFL Draft.

Trevor Lawrence will undergo shoulder surgery Tuesday

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence will undergo his previously reported shoulder procedure this week.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Lawrence will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair his non-throwing shoulder. Well-known surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the procedure, and the expectation is that Lawrence will be ready for training camp.

While it’s never great news that a highly-touted quarterback prospect needs shoulder surgery, there’s little here that will dissuade the Jacksonville Jaguars. The issue is with Lawrence’s non-throwing shoulder, and it certainly didn’t seem to cause him any trouble at his Pro Day workout.

While Lawrence should be fine for training camp, the 5-to-6 month window doesn’t leave much time for setbacks. Any longer than six months and Lawrence’s timetable would get uncomfortably close to the start of regular season action.

Trevor Lawrence has funny response to old video of his terrible passing

Trevor Lawrence had a funny response on Twitter Friday to an old video of him throwing passes.

Lawrence drew rave reviews for his passing at the Clemson Pro Day on Friday.

Lawrence performing so well — and being in the conversation to be the top overall pick — led Rivals to bring up something from the past. They posted a video of Lawrence throwing passes at a scouting event in 2015. Lawrence didn’t exactly have his net accuracy down.

Lawrence had some fun with the video and didn’t take things personally. He joked that he’s “never been a big net thrower guy.”

Rather than get embarrassed, Lawrence showed he can brush aside digs like he does defenders on the field.

Lawrence passed for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in three seasons at Clemson. He won one national championship.

Lawrence could very well be headed to play for a coach with whom he is familiar.

Dabo Swinney offers bold Trevor Lawrence comparison

Dabo Swinney

Trevor Lawrence did nothing to hurt his status as the presumptive No. 1 pick in April’s NFL Draft at his Pro Day on Friday, and he earned a rave review from his college coach in the process.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was full of praise for his quarterback after Lawrence’s showing on Friday. In fact, he even compared watching Lawrence to watching one of the best pro athletes today.

“It’s a beautiful thing to watch,” Swinney said on ACC Network. “It’s like watching Steph Curry shoot a basketball, right? It’s just fun to watch.”

That’s quite the comparison given the incredible performances Curry has been turning in lately. Swinney isn’t saying Lawrence is going to be the football version of Curry, but putting their names together is certainly high praise.

Lawrence seemed to warrant the praise based on his performance on Friday. Anticipation is going to be very high for his debut next season, likely with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Trevor Lawrence draws rave reviews after throwing at Pro Day

Trevor Lawrence really had nothing to gain from throwing for NFL teams on Friday, as he is already locked in as the top overall pick in the upcoming draft. The Clemson star said he just wanted to have a normal Pro Day, however, and it sounds like he put on a show.

Lawrence needs surgery on his non-throwing shoulder, so he chose to hold his Pro Day a bit early so he can have the procedure and recover in time for summer workouts. Lawrence threw 52 passes for representatives from 16 teams. He was as good as advertised, according to one executive who spoke with NFL Network’s Jane Slater.

That seemed to be the general consensus. NFL analysts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah were also blown away with what they saw from Lawrence. Brooks called Lawrence a “rare player” who has all the physical and leadership attributes you want from a quarterback. Jeremiah said Lawrence “went out there today and showed me everything I needed to see.”

Those in attendance were particularly impressed with this throw:

There has never been a doubt that Lawrence would be the top overall pick. In fact, he may be one of the main reasons Meyer took the Jacksonville job. If nothing else, it sounds like Lawrence padded his stats on Friday.
