Trevor Lawrence got the nod to start in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ first preseason game against the Cleveland Browns and he gave the fans in attendance a show while on the field. While he was sacked and hit more than fans would like, he had a couple of highlight throws that proved he will be named the team’s QB1 at some point before the regular seasons starts.
His most notable throw came in the second quarter as he dropped back to survey the field for a third and eight conversion. The receivers initially couldn’t get open, and despite being harassed for much of the night, he hung in the pocket until veteran receiver Marvin Jones Jr. broke loose vertically. Lawrence then read it perfectly as the offensive line gave him plenty of time and uncorked a 35-yard completion for Jones to go up and snag over the defender who wasn’t looking.
