(Reuters) – The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Clemson University quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first NFL draft pick on Thursday in Cleveland, Ohio, as fans were welcomed to the event a year after COVID -19 will force you to adopt a virtual format.
Lawrence, 21, who finished runner-up in voting for the Heisman Trophy awarded to the most outstanding player in college football, was the first consensus pick for the Jaguars, who got 1 and 15 last season.
The 6-foot-6-inch (1.98-meter) quarterback enters the league after a dazzling college career in which he led the Clemson Tigers to three consecutive ACC championship titles and won the national championship in his first year.
The outdoor event marked a slight return to normalcy for the NFL after last year’s virtual draft, as fans gathered to catch a glimpse of the next generation of NFL talent.
