Trevor Lawrence is getting set to become the No. 1 overall draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The former Clemson Tigers star QB will be with the Jacksonville Jaguars and in charge of trying to turn the struggling franchise around for years to come.
Tonight is likely his second most important day, as Lawrence and his longtime girlfriend, Marissa Mowry, tied the knot earlier this year.
“It’s a transformational draft for an organization. This is the most important draft. I kind of know the whole history of the Jaguars but this is one of those very unique drafts. When you look at the NFL, this is one of these historic opportunities for Jacksonville. Obviously the No. 1 pick and I keep challenging our staff, ‘we have to get this right. There can’t be a miss,’” Urban Meyer told Adam Schefter.
“And then you throw the additional challenge of COVID the normal way of doing it, you go in and you … I’m such a relational person that I want to, I want to get about a foot from this player’s face and talk to him about like I did in recruiting … what are you made of, how are you going to handle this, what are your habits … tell me about your family and I want to know this. And you’re now doing it on an iPad. iPads aren’t the same as in person. So, there’s challenges here and I’m very grateful I surrounded myself with veteran people, veteran NFL people.”
Marissa is definitely excited about tonight.
