Trevor time: Jacksonville Jaguars clinch No. 1 pick in 2021 NFL Draft
Trevor Lawrence will likely soon be adjusting to life in “DUUUVAL.” The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially secured the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The New York Jets defeated the Cleveland Browns 23-16 while Jacksonville fell 41-17 at home to the Chicago Bears in the Sunday afternoon early block. With those outcomes, the Jags have the top pick regardless of the Week 17 outcomes.
The No. 1 pick news follows a Sunday morning report from ESPN that Urban Meyer is drawing interest from at least two NFL teams about coaching in the pros in 2021. NFL insider Adam Schefter’s article included this about a potential return to the Sunshine State for Meyer:
With his connections to the state of Florida — having coached the Gators from 2005 to 2010 — Meyer might be a logical fit for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have a vacancy at general manager…
It certainly sounds like there could be some high-profile new faces in Jacksonville. The 2021 NFL Draft is scheduled to be held from April 29 to May 1, 2021, in Cleveland.
With the Jets win today, the Jacksonville Jaguars officially clinched the No. 1 pick.
