If You Could Draft Trevor Lawrence Today - 1st Round Pick?

Theoretical Question. If you’re an NFL GM and you could draft Trevor Lawrence today knowing he’d have to sit for 2 years, would you spend a 1st round pick on him?

Years ago Red Auerbach drafted a college player with the 6th overall pick yet  that player opted to return to college and play his Sr year with the Celts knowing they might lose exclusive rights to him if they didn't sign him before the next draft. Said player led his team the next year to the Final Four. Just after the season ended the Celtics were able to sign said player.  Worked out ok for the Celtics in the long run as the player was Larry Bird

Sure, and it happens in baseball all the time. But with football there's a greater risk of injury. 

To play more hypotheticals, if an NBA team could draft a player before he went to college, I think that's a sport it would happen fairly often.  If the Celtics (or any team) could have drafted Anthony Davis before he played his one year at Kentucky, seems he would have gone really high.
