Clemson Football: Trevor Lawrence Is the Second Best QB in College Football

College football has its share of quality quarterbacks this upcoming season. One of those signal-callers is Clemson's Trevor Lawrence, who could make a run for the Heisman this year.

In Athlon Sports' Top 130 Quarterback Rankings, the Tigers' signal-caller is listed at No. 2, just behind Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa.
