Dave Caban reacts to the landing spots of quarterbacks selected in Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft and explains how you should approach them in Superflex. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars started off the 2021 NFL draft by selecting Trevor Lawrence. Zach Wilson, who rose up draft boards this spring, went to the New York Jets with the No. 2 overall pick, and the 49ers brought the speculation to an end by turning the draft’s third pick into Trey Lance. The Bears traded up to make Justin Fields their franchise quarterback and New England used their No. 15 pick to add Mac Jones.

Let’s take a quick appraisal of each passer’s collegiate profile, landing spot, and fantasy outlook.

Trevor Lawrence: Pick 1 – Jacksonville Jaguars

Lawrence enters the NFL as one of the most sought-after prospects of the last decade. He burst onto the scene as a freshman at Clemson, passing for 30 touchdowns and just four interceptions while leading the Tigers to an undefeated season and National Championship. Lawrence would go on to play in another National Championship game and produce an impressive 34-2 college win/loss record as a starter.

Lawrence’s career paAYA of 9.77 is the 29th highest of all prospects since 2005. As a rusher, he amassed 18 TDs, and 4.08 yards per rushing attempt. When considering draft position, height, and weight, the RotoViz Box Score Scout produces an optimistic comp group.
