Forget whatever you previously knew or thought about the Jacksonville Jaguars. This 1995 expansion team is again a virtual, freshly new team. And perhaps the most fascinating and interesting club in pro football. Rookie NFL head coach Urban Meyer and rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the first overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, have arrived. The tandem of rookies is tasked with transforming a franchise with just one winning record since 2007 into a champion as they grow the brand out of apathy. It’s a tall task.

Urban Meyer won three national championships as a college head coach with the Florida Gators (2) and Ohio State Buckeyes (1). While at both schools, Meyer suffered from mental breakdowns and headaches. He admitted that those problems were due to his inability to handle losing. How he manages to survive the NFL, where the best coaches lose multiple games per season, will be a daily drama.

Meyer inherits a franchise that has nowhere to go but up. The Jaguars finished the 2020 season at 1-15 straight up and 7-9 against the spread. The Jaguars ranked 30th for scoring offense and 31st for points allowed. Their fan base is fewer than most mediocre college programs. In other words, everything is set up for immediate improvement.

Trevor Lawrence won the national championship as a true freshman coming off the bench for the Clemson Tigers in 2018. He led the Tigers to the College Football Playoff all three of his seasons and was the 2020 ACC Player of the Year. And yet there were criticisms that Lawrence only the one natty, that he never won a Heisman, and that he padded his stats in the relatively weak Atlantic Coast Conference. Still, he was the consensus top-rated quarterback of the 2021 NFL Draft. Meyer is betting his coaching reputation, if not his life, that Lawrence is the answer. In fact, Lawrence is the only reason that Meyer took the Jacksonville job.

Following the pick of Lawrence, the Jaguars made things interesting with the 25th pick of the first round by taking his Clemson teammate, running back Travis Etienne. Etienne ranks as a good player, but most observers panned the selection for being too soon. In the second round, George cornerback Tyson Campbell and Stanford offensive tackle Walker Little, graded high. Third round pick Andre Cisco, a safety from Syracuse, could prove to be a steal.
