Jaguars QB coach Mike McCoy likes the quicker decisions he’s seeing from Trevor Lawrence

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered through a rough rookie season. As one of the most celebrated quarterback prospects ever to enter the draft, expectations were high, but Lawrence threw 17 interceptions, the most in the NFL, and among all quarterbacks who threw at least 400 passes, Lawrence ranked dead last in yards, touchdowns, completion percentage and yards per attempt.

This year, the Jaguars need to see big improvement from Lawrence. Jaguars quarterbacks coach Mike McCoy is seeing it.

McCoy said at the end of the Jaguars’ offseason work that Lawrence had grown through Organized Team Activities, is developing a firm grasp of the new offense that head coach Doug Pederson is installing, and is getting through his progressions quickly.

“The last couple of days through the OTAs, you see some of the checks that he’s made the line of scrimmage,” McCoy said, via SI.com. “He’s making quicker decisions now.”

The Jaguars have finished with the worst record in the NFL two years in a row, and it’s going to be hard to be patient with Lawrence if there isn’t a big improvement, both in his passing numbers and in the standings.

  1. The Jags are going to ruin his career. Give him some help like a WR who can get open. The coaching change was nice but I am not sure the Jags draft helped him much or the Free agents they signed. If they win more than 6 games this year they will surprise me and thats pretty easy in the division they play in.

  2. Last year for Jags was an absolute dumpster fire no doubt. In my opinion TL showed ALOT of maturity in how he handled everything. As an example – wonder how Baker Mayfield might have handled that as a rookie.
    TL did not look like a future superstar to me…but he certainly deserves the benefit of the doubt. Having better players around him…better coaches…better Defense…no drama…all of that can work together to put him in MUCH better situations to succeed and gain confidence…then the sky is the limit.

    I think he is also highly intelligent and will learn quickly from his mistakes. I see a real good year 2 for him.

  3. I can’t imagine rookie QB having a hard time in Jacksonville last year. I mean, I can’t think of a better environment for a young QB to prosper.

  4. Hopefully he can have a great year this year. With the Jags you never know whats gonna happen. The kid is very talented and showed some flashes last year under terrible circumastances.

  5. He showed a lot of poise and professionalism with that circus last year . Hopefully he has a Troy aikman type of career. 1st year was awful than he’s career took off with some talent around him.

  6. they’ve got a real coach, finally. some legit talent at WR. Travis Etienne, one of Lawrence’s favorite targets in college, is back. they’ve stacked the defense and drafted well. listen, hate them or not, the Jags have all the pieces to surprise a lot of teams.
