Meyer: Trevor Lawrence "not ready yet" to be named Jaguars' Week 1 starter

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is reportedly "not ready yet" according to head coach Urban Meyer.

What It Means:

Asked why Lawrence hasn't been confirmed as Jacksonville's Week 1 starter yet, Meyer told reporters "he's not ready yet, but he doesn't have to be ready yet". He added that "we've got a long training camp coming up. He's probably advanced maybe a little quicker than we would've thought, which is a can see the retention, he's got a really good work ethic and he's progressed very well". The expectation is that Lawrence will open the season as the Jaguars starter, but Meyer appears to want to track his progress through his rookie training camp before making it official.

numberFire's models project Lawrence for 263 completions on 326 attempts this season for 4,555 passing yards, 27.81 passing touchdowns, 11.8 interceptions, with 162 rushing yards and 2.00 rushing touchdowns. He is the QB14 in our preseason fantasy projections.
