Potential no. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence goes off vs. Georgia Tech originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Have yourself a day, Trevor Lawrence.
The Clemson quarterback and presumptive no. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Trevor Lawrence went nuclear in the first half against Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon.
Lawrence threw a for a ridiculous five touchdowns and 391 yards on 22-of-27 passing - in the first half alone.
Lawrence spread his scoring around to four different receivers. Oh, and that wasn't all. Clemson also got a rushing touchdown from Travis Etienne, so they went into halftime having scored 52 points. The over/under for this game in its total was 64.5, and Clemson almost matched that themselves in just 30 minutes of play.
He did throw his first interception in over 300 pass attempts, falling short of the ACC record for passes without a pick. But it's an easy miscue to overlook when you're having the kind of day Lawrence is.
These are the games that just further reiterate why any team would be ecstatic to finish with the top overall pick in next year's draft.
