2021 NFL Draft: Trevor Lawrence will undergo surgery on non-throwing shoulder

Trevor Lawrence

The presumed No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, is slated to undergo surgery to repair an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Friday.

The surgery won’t impact Lawrence’s pre-draft plan to throw for NFL teams at his Pro Day and will have him 100% healthy in time for his first training camp, presumably with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Lawrence headlines a quality quarterback class that could see as many as five passers off the board in the first 15 picks, including Ohio State’s Justin Fields, BYU’s Zach Wilson, North Dakota State’s Trey Lance, and Alabama’s Mac Jones.

Even with the injury, Lawrence is a sure bet to be the first overall pick in April.
