Presumptive first overall pick Trevor Lawrence successfully had surgery on his non-throwing shoulder Tuesday, which means he’s now ready to begin healing up and eventually rehabbing for the NFL. Per NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero, everything “went great” as the procedure was done by Dr. ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles.

After the process, Lawrence himself took to Instagram to show fans that he’s doing well — and that he’s also keeping his coffee priorities straight.

Lawrence’s surgery comes days after his pro day at Clemson where he put on an impressive display for the Jacksonville Jaguars and NFL in general. He didn’t look the slightest bit bothered by the injury or the fact that Jags coach Urban Meyer was watching closely though, making the workout with Clemson receiver Cornell Powell and others look easy.

A full recovery process for the future No. 1 overall pick is expected to take four to five months, but the expectation is for him to be ready for NFL training camp. He also told the media that he expects to resume throwing in six to eight weeks, which puts him on a timetable of late March to early April.

Despite the minor roadblock, the Jags undoubtedly have their minds made up to take the Clemson star, who most feel is a generational talent. Instead, the fanbase should more so turn their attention to who the team will take with their other 10 picks as there are several needs to address this offseason.
