Why wasn't Lawrence in the Heisman running?
Found this on Lawrence's recruitment:
WATCH Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence: Thoughts on Georgia football, Justin Fields
Georgia coming off down year plus a surplus of quality QBs in Athens factored in Lawrence's Clemson choice
Saban wanted him too but I suspect Alabama's depth at QB plus the reality that Alabama hasn't been producing successful NFL QBs weighed heavily
And Dabo seems to be a fun guy vs Lord Vader
Didn’t start the year and took over for Bryant. Got better and better as the year went on. He also missed some time after a hit he took against Syracuse. Finally, he just simply wasn’t getting the press that Tua and Murray were.
I want Lawrence as Brady's successor. But there's basically a zero percent chance of it. The only way that it happens is to evaluate when he would come out (after his sophomore year? I can't remember...let's call it 2021 after his junior year) and anticipate which team is going to suck the most that year, and make a trade now - current draft picks or players for their, say, 2021 first round pick. And just hope that they suck the most and you somehow end up with the #1 pick in 2021 as Lawrence comes out.
I mean good luck with that but man I'd love to see that kid be the next Patriots' QB.
It’s probably not going to happen. But I agree. And he’s just a true freshman so he has a ton of room to grow.
Justyn Ross also looks like he could be a blue chip talent at receiver, and Tee Higgins is going to be a day 1 pick too. Clemson just can't stop producing 1st round receivers. Renfrow will probably be a 3rd rounder or so, and might answer the question about who succeeds Edelman.
Nice breakdown, Kontra. You’re the man, buddy.
@BaconGrundleCandy could probably elaborate a bit more or provide a different perspective as well.
When it comes to college QBs I prefer to watch them against potential nfl defences, so any QB who plays well against Bama I always rate higher, because that’s as close as you’ll get to a Defence in the NFL. That’s why I rank Jake Fromm highly.
Way over-rated in my mind. The Clemson kid on the other hand has everything. He will win 3-4 more championships BEFORE he graduates. And as the Jets will stink 4 years from now, just like they do now, they will have the first pick...and select someone else.
A few smart moves & we won't have to. The key
You pretty much hit it.
Coming out of hs I thought Fields & Lawrence were 1a/b. Fields has been comp'd to Watson for a minute & it makes sense except he looks a lil further along. Might have some typical young kid maturity issues like all 18-20 yo but on the field he looks like he belongs big time. Again going back to Watson, it seems he's made countless big plays when it matters most.
I love him as a passer though. His arm is legit & can touch almost any part of the field. Small sample size but he looks like someone who never aims & isn't afraid to give his guy a shot. Much like Lawrence last night w 50/50. Has an arm, trust it.
I believe he didn't start right away in hs. Nunez was in front of him & he had to learn several different offenses by the time he was the starter. Has some experience under center.
Baseball player & to me it shows. He's very smooth & fluid. That might sound like nothing but there's no segmented movements, hitches in his mechanics. Played ss I believe & again it shows w a nice easy release & movements.
Like you said perfect for osu. I can only imagine what he'll do w all that talent.
Hopefully we get to see Fields/Lawrence on the big stage before they go pro.
Nah. I’m not saying the dynasty is dead. Alabama is still going to be very good and they are still going to compete for titles. I just think teams are catching up. Clemson and Georgia are right there and A and M is coming.
Alabama can’t win the title every year, just like we can’t win the super bowl every year. watching Alabama win all the time makes me understand why people hate NE so much.
I knew Trevor Lawrence reminded me of someone...
Meh. It might be more competitive, but Alabama is still pulling down top recruiting classes. I really don't think they're going anywhere.

This was found way back in 2014 on Trevor Lawrence’s instagram.
NFL would forfeit our 1st round pick in 2021 if we got the 1st overall selection. There is no way no how they would allow us to get another 15 year dynasty rolling.
