When it comes to the NFL Draft, there is rarely a player who is truly considered a “can’t miss” prospect that everyone knows will be the No. 1 overall pick. But when there is, that is the player that should absolutely be selected first overall.
The upcoming NFL Draft just so happens to have one of those players and his name is Trevor Lawrence.
But don’t tell former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre that!
According to Favre, he would take Alabama WR DeVonta Smith the No. 1 overall pick.
“I would take DeVonta Smith,” the Packers legend told TMZ. “This guy could be a Jerry Rice. A Randy Moss. A total game-changer.”
“Jacksonville, in my opinion, I don’t know if quarterback is their immediate need,” argued Favre, conveniently ignoring Lawrence’s 34 victories in 36 career starts at Clemson. “Nothing against Trevor Lawrence, but I think you can find a free agent guy or a guy in the latter rounds or mid-rounds in the draft.”
It sure sounds like Brett Favre took one too many hits during his playing days!
