Urban Meyer, listen up … Brett Favre informs TMZ Sports the Jaguars need to NOT draft Trevor Lawrence #1 total — and rather, take DeVonta Smith!!
“I don’t know if Jacksonville, in my opinion, I don’t know if quarterback is their immediate need,” the NFL legend says … “I would take DeVonta Smith.”
It’s a scorching hot draw from Favre — most think Lawrence is the NFL draft’s finest QB possibility given that Andrew Luck in 2012.
And, almost everybody associated with the draft procedure has actually currently pegged the Clemson super star to be Jacksonville’s choice in their mock drafts.
But, Favre says he’d opt for the Alabama wideout regardless … discussing the Heisman Trophy winner is simply various.
“I think you go with a guy like that,” Favre says. “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.”
“But, you just don’t find a guy like a — this guy could be a Jerry Rice. He could be different. A Randy Moss. A total game-changer.”
The take noises extremely comparable to Quinnen Williams‘ — the Jets star informed us simply a couple of weeks ago he’s hoping his New York team takes Smith over a QB also.
So, could the Jags shock the world and make the relocation? Draft is set for April 29 … remain tuned.
