ESPN analyst thinks Lawrence potentially could be greatest player of all time

NEW ORLEANS — Could Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence become the greatest college football player of all time?

ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer thinks so.

On College Football Live Monday, as he joined the show to help preview tonight’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Clemson and LSU at the Superdome in New Orleans, Palmer says if Lawrence outduels Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow to complete a second straight undefeated season, it’s hard not to.

“I think this, Trevor Lawrence is a prodigy,” Palmer said. “If he wins tonight and he outduels Joe Burrow and he goes 30-0 and wins his second national championship in his first two years, I think Trevor Lawrence needs to enter the conversation as potentially the greatest college football player of all time.
