The presumptive new face of the Jacksonville Jaguars should be ready to go by training camp.
Former Clemson quarterback, and the guy most are expecting to be the first pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, reportedly had successful surgery on Monday to repair a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing, shoulder.
The former Clemson Tiger chose to have his own personal pro day last week ahead the surgery, something Lawrence really didn’t need to do.
Lawrence, who went 34-2 as a starter at Clemson, led the Tigers to three straight ACC Championships and three straight appearances in the College Football Playoff. He also helped guide the team to two appearances in the national title game, and helped Clemson win its third national championship in 2018 as a true freshman.
Many experts are calling Lawrence the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck and many have had him pegged as the number one overall pick in this draft since his days of playing high school football in the state of Georgia.
UPDATE: Lawrence himself took to social media tonight to let fans know the procedure went well.
It is expected to take somewhere between 4-6 weeks before Lawrence can begin throwing again, meaning the former Clemson Tiger should be ready to go by the time NFL training camps start opening up.
