Zach Wilson and Trevor Lawrence share matching advertisements ahead of matchup

The first round of the 2021 NFL draft started off with two quarterback selections: Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars at number one and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets at number two.

On Sunday, they will face off for the first time in their NFL careers.

Leading into the matchup, the two Bose-sponsored athletes posted matching advertisements to their Instagram accounts.

“Week 16 versus the Jets. Really excited about that,” said Lawrence. “We’ll be in New York for Christmas which will be different, and then obviously a big matchup like that with two rookie quarterbacks. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

“I’m excited just to go compete against Trevor,” said Wilson. “It’s a dream come true. I know it is for Trevor as well and, you know, we got to know each other a little bit over this past summer and he’s a great guy. What a fun matchup that’s gonna be.”

For much of the 2021 draft process, Lawrence and Wilson were projected to go back-to-back at the top of the draft.

Before he even stepped foot on the grass at Clemson University, Lawrence was thought of as one of the best quarterback prospects ever. And over his time in college, he proved that to be true.

In his three years at Clemson, Lawrence led the Tigers to three College Football Playoff appearances and a National Championship win in 2018. Lawrence threw for 90 touchdowns in his Clemson career and holds the school record with a career passer rating of 164.3, breaking Deshaun Watson’s record.

Wilson had a much different route to becoming a top draft prospect. Struggling with injuries as a sophomore, he flew under the radar of NFL scouts until his final season at Brigham Young University in 2020.

As a junior, Wilson finished eighth in Heisman voting and led the Cougars to their highest ranking in the final AP poll since 1996. He threw for 33 touchdowns and only three interceptions while completing 73.5% of his passes and averaging 11.0 yards per pass attempt.

Despite their very different paths to the NFL, Lawrence and Wilson now share similar expectations from two historically dejected fanbases.

Both rookies have struggled throughout their debut seasons, but their Week 16 matchup should create some draft class rivalry fun for both the fans and the quarterbacks themselves.
