Though the Jaguars knew that the former Clemson star was their guy, they said that the NFL forced them to wait at least seven minutes before making any sort of move.


“Well when the league called, they said you have to wait seven minutes to turn in the card,” Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke said in a draft video released by the team. “So we didn’t pick up the phone to call [Lawrence]. We just sat there, and he’s sitting on his end wondering why we haven’t called him.”
Fans watching the draft at home were understandably annoyed. As everyone knew what the Jaguars were going to do, why drag it out?

Once that seven-minute mark hit, though, things got worse for the Jaguars. Lawrence wasn’t picking up his phone.

“We started calling him, getting a recording,” owner Shad Kahn said. “Then you’re seeing the clock tick away and, ‘Let’s try it again.’ We got the same recording. So after about three tries, you're nervous.”
Coach Urban Meyer eventually picked up the phone himself and got through to Lawrence, and the rest was history.

While the Jaguars won’t complain, considering everything worked out just fine, fans at least now know why it took them so long to officially select Lawrence to kick off the draft.

If Tommy Tremble can become a more consistent pass catcher he could be special given everything else about his game.

One of the best blockers I've seen in years coming out. Really fun to watch his blocking.
Notre dame does produce good right ends aswell it’s like o-line

Tremble is such a good blocker if he improves hands and route running could be special like a George kittle who is a monster as a run game blocker

I'd have thought that most teams would have moved to a digital draft board by now. Are the Jags too paranoid or too cheap?

Perfect prospect grade for Waddle is ridiculously high but not surprising given Meyer has a major hard-on for anyone who can run fast. If he was around for previous drafts he probably would have given Henry Ruggs , Jonathan Ross and Darrius Heyward-Bey 8.0s as well.

No doubt they had given Toney an 8.0 as well, given Meyer talked about how he was heartbroken when the Giants took him. 😂

I like Toney alot he could be this years Justin Jefferson

Saying that if they rated waddle 8.0 chase must of been the same or higher clearly the best wideout in the draft.

The first ever NFL draft pick, the #1 of all #1s, Jay Berwanger, didn't play a down of football. He was also the first ever Heisman Trophy winner before it was called the Heisman.

1st rounder Demetrius Underwood. Mental illness issues. Waived by Vikings due to his inability to resolve internal conflict between playing football and practicing his Christian faith. Found by Dolphins team/staff to be writing about the apocalypse instead of taking notes during team meetings. While on Dolphins roster, was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and placed in protective care. He escaped his protective care facility. As a member of the Cowboys, he tried to commit suicide by running into traffic on a busy highway. Eventually admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Spent time in and out of both Dallas and Philadelphia correctional facilities.

Sergio Kindle - 2nd round - Ravens

Kirby Criswell was drafted by the Bengals in the second round (31st overall) in 1980. Got cut in training camp, signed with the Packers a few days later, was released again as part of final cuts, and signed with the Cardinals mid-season to mark his third team as a rookie.

Quentin Moses was the first pick in the third round of the 2007 draft by the Raiders. Was cut anyway.

Jachai Polite in the 3rd round, 2019. Dude was getting top 5 pick hype the year before, just had to show up and go through the motions and he would have made the team, but he couldn't even do that much.

Chiefs 3rd rounder in 2016 KeiVarae Russell was cut in camp.

Buster Davis - 3rd round 2007 - Cardinals.

Broncos drafted Carlos Henderson 82nd overall. He got injured in the first preseason game and was IRed for the year. Then the next year he was suspended for drugs and released. He never played a regular season snap. The 2017 Broncos draft is one of the worst ever. It's telling that in 2018 it was clear that the only decent player was Bolles who was considered a disappoinment at the time.

Joe Williams 4th rd. 49ers have made some good picks recently. This was not.

Vikings drafted Willie Beavers in the 4th a few years ago and he was cut before the season.

Tyler Wilson, 4th round 2013, Raiders, cut in camp.

Chubb is the better player of the two plus he doesn't miss the game Barkley does. Plus Barkley was 2nd overall pick in the draft he should be hof running back at the moment he is just good.
He missed a year due to injury. If hed played the full year probably not say this. Have to give him a full second year before judging

Granted, Chubb has retained good health and clearly, holds that advantage over Barkley atm but we'll see how quickly you change your tune when Saquon is back to full fitness.
