Trevor Lawrence will face his toughest test since becoming an NFL quarterback Sunday with the Buffalo Bills coming to town. He will also have to do so without his top weapon in James Robinson, which is why many are expecting a potential blowout by the Bills.

Despite the Jags’ struggles, though, the Bills are coming into Sunday’s game with a lot of respect for the team as all good teams should. That much can be seen from one of the team’s defensive leaders, Micah Hyde, who had beat things to say about Lawrence heading into the game.

“Solid. Solid, young quarterback who can get it done with his arm and his legs,” Hyde said this week. “His arm is what everyone has been talking about, he can make every throw on the field. You see him back in his Clemson days doing the same thing, so you know mechanically what type of quarterback he is. He’s probably one of the best, mechanically, quarterbacks I’ve seen. Especially at his age, it’s impressive to see.”

For Lawrence, these words should mean a lot as Hyde is one of the league’s best safeties. Of the safeties who’ve seen at least 200 snaps, he ranks seventh on Pro Football Focus with an overall grade of 76.5. That said, it appears he will be well informed on the damage Lawrence could do Sunday.

However, Hyde wasn’t the only person from the Bills’ organization who seemed impressed with Lawrence as coach Sean McDermott praised him, too.

“He’s gonna have a long, successful career in this league, I’m sure, and we have a lot of respect for him,” the fifth-year head coach said.

Lawrence had a rough outing in his last game against the Seattle Seahawks completing 32-of-54 passes for 238 yards, and he also threw a pick. However, when looking at his performances prior he was clearly on the right track, and the praise from McDermott and Hyde indicates that the rookie has a bright future.
