The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

"Pretty surreal," Lawrence said on the draft telecast from Seneca, South Carolina, after being selected. "Obviously this has been the dream for the past few years. And like I've said, I didn't even dream this as a kid, so [it's] really special and just having all the people that I care about here watching, it's really hard to explain.

"I was super nervous before and just am so excited to be a part of the Jacksonville community. ... I'm super excited to be coming to Jacksonville and play for you guys and can't wait to go to work."
