While the Jacksonville Jaguars continue to zero in on Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, what they have behind Lawrence at the quarterback position continues to have more and more lairs. Head coach Urban Meyer opened up about a possible reunion with Alex Smith, whom he coached when both were at Utah with the Utes.

Talking with Michael Irvin on “The Michael Irvin Podcast” with the quotes being reposted on USA Today's Jaguarswire, Meyer made it seem that a reunion may be more likely than not.

“I wanted him here,” Meyer said. “You know, we talked to him about joining here. He’s had a tough injury. Of all the players I’ve ever coached, and I would tell people this when people didn’t know how tough he was, he’s one of the toughest cats I’ve ever been around.” – Urban Meyer on Alex Smith

The Jaguars coach went on to say that they are and will continue to monitor Smith's situation.

“We had conversations with him. There are some medical people in our organization that were very concerned. And remember, our GM [Trent Baalke] actually drafted Alex at San Francisco. So you have two people in Jacksonville that love Alex. It was that was deeper than a player, now. He’s like our family. Both of us feel so strongly about them. But that’s something that we’re just going to keep an eye on because I hope he comes back.” – Meyer

It's a busy quarterback room in Jacksonville with the Jaguars already. Gardner Minshew is still on the roster, the team went out and signed C.J. Beathard in free agency and all signs point to them drafting Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick. Still, the Jaguars may bring Alex Smith aboard as well if the fit seems right.

Regardless of what the record shows in 2021, the Jaguars are laying the groundwork early to turn around a franchise that blew everything up recently after reaching the AFC Championship back in 2017.
