The Jacksonville Jaguars had a hard time getting in contact with Trevor Lawrence on draft night.

In a video tweeted by Dov Kleiman showing a behind the scenes look at the action, the Jaguars tried to call the former Clemson star three times and were sent to voicemail every time. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Eventually, Urban Meyer was able to get through and inform him that he was the first pick in the draft. Watch the tense moments unfold below.

How does something like this even happen? How do the Jags get sent to voicemail three times and why did they even have to wait seven minutes?

Was Lawrence’s phone just not working at all? Did he not have a backup? Did the Jags have nobody else’s number?

This seems like something that just shouldn’t happen, especially as the clock nears zero.

Having said all of that, I can’t wait to see what Lawrence does in Jacksonville. I can’t remember the last time a new coach and a new quarterback had so much hype around them.

All eyes are on Jacksonville, and I think it’s going to be a ton of fun.
