Well, I recall him out of HS and stuff like this was said:

 

"Lawrence was a five-star recruit and ranked as the number one overall recruit in his class by Rivals.com, Scout.com and 247Sports.com.[7][8] ESPN ranked him second behind dual-threat quarterback and Georgia commit Justin Fields.[9] Fields would transfer to Ohio State after his freshman year, and the two highly touted quarterbacks met in the 2019 Fiesta Bowl, a CFP semi-final.

Lawrence is regarded as the best quarterback prospect ever by Mike Farrell of Rivals, who said the following: "He’s the most special quarterback prospect I’ve seen in all my years at Rivals. Josh Rosen used to hold that title until Lawrence came along but I’ve never seen someone with his combination of size, arm strength, accuracy, field vision, mobility and all the intangibles needed to be great. (...) There have been some amazing talents I’ve seen at Rivals over the years with different skill sets from Vince Young to Matthew Stafford and more, including Rosen, but Lawrence is a different category. Every time I see him, he reminds me of Peyton Manning, except he’s more athletic with a better arm. I know that’s heady and ridiculous stuff, and people who know me know I don’t say stuff like that often, but this kid is special. The comparisons are accurate."

 

 

Dont care about 2 years ago. I'm asking why some drool over him as an NFL prospect.

It will be interesting to see if he is just one of those guys who look stellar when playing an over matched opponent, less so against equals.  In the NFL playing field is significantly leveled.  

I think Lawrence will be pretty damn good, but he's definitely been over-hyped. I like Burrow's intangibles way better.

That fucking male model hair cut is enough to make me not like him.

Just saying some people don't get over that and 25-0.  Dude has never lost.  Including vs Bama last year.  He may not be a #1 (or should be, because he still might be), but he's still likely a very high 1st at least.  Not like he's playing vs scrubs in the LSU D.  Borderline NFL speed out there already on both sides.

 

Now will he succeed at the next level?  That's always tricky.  But I give him better than 50/50.  Like 54.  😁

I dont watch much college football but he been terrible throwing the ball tonight against a quarter of an NFL team and he didnt look great against Ohio St either. I don't see it.

He scores well on the arm strength/football IQ and all that.  Hard to eval on games like this sometimes, when you put Peyton Manning at prime out there but if no open guys and a pass rush and you're still reaching in desperation. 

 

Additionally, I don't think the average fan considers the impact of coaching at the college level, especially from the OC/DC positions.  Really can get back to a chess vs checkers situation.  (Oh where is Chuck Cecil now) Makes guys on the premier teams with premier coordinators/OL/skill positions look that much better,   

 

I am not his cheerleader.  I like Burrow but still not sold he is some next level NFL guy yet.  I like him and hope he is, but again hard to evaluate in context.   I thought Dak was underrated  at Miss St.  Also thought Aaron Murray would be a solid #2-3 so what do I know?

 

But wouldn't bet the farm against Lawrence just yet.  But wouldn't sell it to draft him either.

Lawrence was a much better player as a freshman. Word on the street is, he's kind of piece of shit around campus, so maybe the limelight got to his head. He's definitely slumped a bit. To be fair his "slump" year probably would've won him the heisman most years.
