Lawrence can throw the ball down the field with ease. He also gets great power on his throws to all distances both in the pocket and while scrambling. This elite arm strength allows him to fit passes into tight windows and quickly get the ball to backs and receivers in space.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
Rarely misses open throws in this distance. His throws quickly get to receivers where they are able to make plays. Sometimes tries to get throws there a bit too quickly and throws into coverage.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
As with short throws, he rarely misses open throws. He makes accurate throws on comebacks and out routes, as well as throws across the middle of the field. Misses some throws when hurried and tends to throw it into coverage a bit more in this distance..
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
Throws a pretty ball down the field and oftentimes puts it in positions for his receivers to go up and make plays in traffic. In spots where the receivers are open he allows them to run underneath long throws. In the CFP against Ohio State, some of these long accuracy problems showed as he struggled to thread the ball into tight windows down the field against elite DBs.
At the time being, this is probably his weakest area. When pressured, he sometimes tends to stand in the pocket instead of rolling out and vice versa. When this happens, it leads to sacks and forced throws into coverage/inaccurate throws. Both of these can be cut down on in the future.
Lawrence can scramble outside the pocket and extend plays both on his feet and with his arm. In addition, he can rip off long runs on designed QB runs. He is also very elusive in the pocket and in the open field.
With only 1 loss on his college record, Lawrence steps up whenever Clemson needs him. Limits turnovers and makes clutch throws. Knows what is required in the given situation.
This suffers a bit from his pocket presence deficiencies, but he typically is able to go through his progressions and find open receivers, usually making the right throw.
6'6" is a fantastic height for a QB which allows him to see over linemen, and surely helps his arm strength. Being only 220 at this height allows him to run swiftly, however, he may want to put on a few lbs for the next level if he continues to run as physically as he does in college.
In addition to size, can fight for extra yards while running, and is very elusive for a QB of his size. Great ability to sell fakes on RPOs and other option plays.
Lawrence has elite accuracy, mobility, and arm strength. These skills coupled with great size and game management capabilities, he's led Clemson to consecutive national championship games including a win in 2018-2019.
When pressured and still inside the pocket, Lawrence forces and misses throws. He is a very confident player, which may lead him to try and thread the ball into very tight coverage when it is not necessary.
Lawrence has incredible talent at such a young age (a true sophomore in 2019) and has a chance to be an all time great QB. Needs to improve his decision making and pocket presence in order to take the next step this coming season and beyond, though I think those will certainly improve with more experience.
