Lawrence is and has been the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft for well over a year now and it’s unlikely that this news will impact that.
Lawrence, 21, is considered by many to be the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck. The expectation is that he’ll be the No. 1 overall pick, which is currently held by the Jaguars.
During his three-year college career, Lawrence completed 66.6 percent of his pass attempts for 10,098 yards (8.9 YPA), 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He also rushed 231 times for 943 yards and 18 touchdowns in 40 career games.
