Jags’ Brian Schottenheimer: ‘Too early’ to name starting QB

Jacksonville passing-game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer said Wednesday that No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence hasn’t locked up the Jaguars’ starting job … yet.

“It’s still too early to say how this thing’s going to play out,” Schottenheimer said, according to ESPN.

Too early for Schottenheimer, perhaps, but all signs point to the former Clemson quarterback being under center when the Jaguars kick off the season at Houston on Sept. 12.

Lawrence is the overwhelming favorite to be the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year at +300 at PointsBet.

The 6-foot-6 Lawrence is regarded as a generational talent and the 21-year-old face of the franchise, which drafted him with the No. 1 overall pick on April 29.

He was 34-2 as a three-year starter at Clemson, completing 66.6 percent of his passes for 10,098 yards with 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Lawrence led the Tigers to the College Football Playoff national championship as a 2018 freshman.

The other quarterbacks on first-year head coach Urban Meyer’s roster are Gardner Minshew II, C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton.
