  1. Once in a lifetime opportunity. To not attend would be moronic. As an aside, Lawrence will go down as one of the biggest busts in NFL history.

  2. Being a network production, would really get buzzing if the Jags took Wilson instead !

  3. Let’s get this new era off to a good start and please be humble kid…Haven’t done anything in the league, let alone a training camp.
