Projected No. 1 overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence said the recovery from surgery on his non-throwing shoulder is going well.
The former Clemson quarterback had the labrum repaired in his left shoulder on Feb. 16.
“As you know, this is really the first serious thing that I’ve dealt with, but I’m doing great,” Lawrence told ESPN on Tuesday. “I actually feel way better than I thought I would at this point.”
After having the surgery, Lawrence’s goal was to be ready prior to training camp. He is expected to starting throwing in late April or early May.
Lawrence is currently rehabbing in Orange County in California.
The Jacksonville Jaguars own the top pick in the 2021 draft and are expected to tab Lawrence.
Lawrence completed 758 of 1,138 passes (66.6 percent) over three seasons at Clemson and recorded totals of 10,098 passing yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He added 943 yards and 18 scores on the ground.
Lawrence guided the Tigers to the national championship following the 2018 season.
