And it’s safe to say Lawrence’s teammates are impressed by what they’ve seen during the offseason program. Take linebacker Joe Schobert, for example. “Trevor’s got an arm — a once-in-a-generation arm — and if he can put it together upstairs mentally for the rookie season in the NFL, which is always, as a quarterback, the hardest thing to do, we’ll be very successful if we can get all that accomplished,” Schobert said during a radio interview.
Jaguars’ Joe Schobert says rookie Trevor Lawrence has a ‘once-in-a-generation’ arm Beyond just his skill set, Schobert is impressed by Lawrence’s confidence and presence on the field.
That’s high praise for a rookie quarterback, but it’s also somewhat expected for a prospect of Lawrence’s caliber. That’s the type of player he’s been viewed as ever since high school, the type of player he was in college, and the type of player many expect he’ll be in the pros. All that’s left to do is actually do it.
“I mean, as a rookie coming into the NFL, I know I definitely wasn’t that confident,” Schobert said. “I was looking up to my veterans, trying to soak up all the information, which he has been very respectful in asking questions. He comes in with a certain poise and a certain caliber, which I expect quarterbacks really should believe in themselves because they play in such a high-stress environment and they’re the ones who get critiqued and judged the most on the football field. I think if he’s able to mentally put everything together, like picking up a new playbook, understanding teams and going against different kinds of athletes on the defensive side of the ball, he can be an extremely good quarterback for the next 10, 15, 20 years for Jacksonville. It’s going to be exciting to see how he progresses because he has all the tools and all the talent.”
