Defender of the Jaguars Trevor Lawrence endured a tough rookie season. As one of the most celebrated quarterback prospects ever drafted, expectations were high, but Lawrence threw 17 interceptions, the most in the NFL, and of all quarterbacks with at least 400 passes, Lawrence finished last in yards, touchdowns, completion percentage and yards per attempt.
The Jaguars need to see a big improvement from Lawrence this year. Jaguar quarterbacks coach Mike McCoy sees it.
McCoy said at the end of the Jaguars’ offseason that Lawrence has grown through organized team action, developing a solid understanding of the new offense that the head coach Doug Pederson is established and quickly goes through its progression.
“The last couple of days through the OTA, you’re seeing some checks that he’s done a scrimmage line,” McCoy said via SI.com. “Now he makes decisions faster“.
The Jaguars have finished with the worst record in the NFL for two straight years, and Lawrence will be hard to put up with unless there is a significant improvement in both his passing numbers and the standings.
