Jaguars react to NFL Network calling Trevor Lawrence 6th-tier AFC QB
Apparently, Kyle Brandt of NFL Network isn’t too impressed with Trevor Lawrence.
In a tier ranking of AFC quarterbacks, the Good Morning Football host put the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 23-year-old quarterback in the sixth of seven tiers for the conference. It landed Lawrence in the same grouping as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Kenny Pickett, New England Patriots’ Mac Jones, and the Miami Dolphins’ Tua Tagovailoa.
The Las Vegas Raiders’ newly signed Jimmy Garoppolo and the Denver Broncos’ Russell Wilson were both ranked ahead of Lawrence.

Lawrence earned a spot in the Pro Bowl last season after finishing with 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
The questionable ranking of the Jaguars quarterback drew plenty of reaction on social media, including from a few of the team’s receivers.

Lawrence’s 95.2 passer rating last season was fifth best in the AFC behind only Tagovailoa, Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, and Josh Allen.
Russell Wilson — who landed in the fourth tier of Brandt’s rankings — had a 84.4 passer rating last year after throwing 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his first season in Denver.
