NFL Power Rankings: Trevor Lawrence ranks 3rd among AFC South QBs

Two weeks have trickled off of the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule, and their all-world signal-caller, Trevor Lawrence, sits at the bottom of the AFC South’s tier of signal-callers.

Sure, prior to this season, you won’t find any record of him losing two regular-season games. As a matter of fact, prior to this year, he hadn’t lost any, but the man who is, perhaps, the NFL’s next big star is feeling the pressure of what it takes to be an NFL quarterback.

No one cares about who’s in your division. No one cares about what your roster has or is lacking.

Sure, it would be nice if Travis Etienne hadn’t had that injury. It would be nice if you had a Derrick Henry in the backfield or a Jon Robinson in the leadership chair, but you don’t. Again, it’s the NFL. You’re the first-overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Figure it out!

That’s Trevor Lawrence’s life right now. Is he talented? Yes, he is. Is he a sure thing? He’s pretty doggone close, but as of right now, Trevor Lawrence, for the first time in his life, isn’t the best quarterback in his division. He’s simply a rookie trying to find his way, and it would be wrong to put him ahead of anyone when he’s already 0-1 in the division.
