Lawrence, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound signal-caller out of Clemson, made two incredible throws that confirmed why he was graded one of the best quarterback prospects ever.
After taking a sack on the very first play of the game, Lawrence and the Jaguars’ offense faced a third-and-9 at their own 15-yard line. Lawrence dropped back and delivered a rope to wide receiver Marvin Jones, who hauled in the reception for the first down.
On Jacksonville’s second drive, Lawrence was once again sacked on a play-action pass play. But on the very next play, Lawrence had a clean pocket and launched a 35-yard bomb to Jones, who once again came down with an incredible catch.
With 8:37 to go in the second quarter, Lawrence was taken out of the game and replaced by backup quarterback Gardner Minshew II.
Lawrence completed 6 of 9 passes for 71 yards.
