Trevor Lawrence is happy with how his rehab from left shoulder surgery is progressing.

The former Clemson star and projected first overall pick in this year's NFL draft underwent surgery on Feb. 16 to repair damage to the labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. As a result, he threw for NFL teams last month instead of participating in Clemson's pro day in March.

"As you know, this is really the first serious thing that I've dealt with, but I'm doing great," Lawrence said, according to ESPN's Stephania Bell. "I actually feel way better than I thought I would at this point."

Lawrence's physical therapist, Drew Morcos, expects the signal-caller to begin throwing again in six-to-eight weeks if his rehab goes as planned.

The Jacksonville Jaguars own the first overall pick in the 2021 draft.

Lawrence helped Clemson win one national title in two championship-game appearances. He threw for 10,098 yards and 90 touchdowns against 17 interceptions over three seasons with the Tigers.
