It has long been known that the Jacksonville Jaguars would select Lawrence as the No. 1 pick. Last month, the franchise's coach, Urban Meyer, who was hired in January, spoke about drafting Lawrence.

He said drafting Lawrence was the direction the Jaguars were going, adding that he would leave the final decision to the team's owner. That decision is now official. Here are some fast facts about the Jaguars' new man.
