Announced by Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence signed his rookie deal on Monday, placing No. 1 pick under contract with a training camp a few more weeks away.

How Lawrence performs is a key factor in Jacksonville’s overall success in 2021 and beyond. One of Lawrence’s teammates recently set a high level of expectation for the young QB.

Linebacker Joe Schobert played on several teams that finished with terrible records, including 1-15 in Jacksonville last season. But what he has observed from Lawrence so far seems to give him hope for the Jaguars ’likely hope.

“Trevor has an arm – a once in a generation arm – and if he can match it with high thinking for the NFL rookie season, which is always, as a quarterback, the hardest thing to do, [then] We will succeed if we get everything done, ”Schobert said in a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Schobert added that he thinks Lawrence is a good man whose strength and confidence impressed him during the offseason program.

“I mean, as a rookie going to the NFL, I know I’m sure that’s not confident,” Schobert said. “I was looking at my veterans, trying to absorb all the information, which he very politely asked. He came with a certain skill and a certain caliber, which I expected the quarterbacks to really need. to believe in themselves because they play in such a highly stressful environment and they are the proven and most judged on the football field.

“I think if he could have the same mindset all over, like getting a new playbook, understanding teams and fighting different types of athletes on the defensive side of the ball, he could be a very good quarterback for the next, 10, 15, 20 years for Jacksonville. It’s nice to see how he’s progressing because he has all the equipment and all the talent. “

Lawrence will begin putting the skills to the test when training camp begins later this month.
