A low-risk investment as a fifth-round pick, Travis isn’t guaranteed to end up taking the reins when Rodgers eventually lets them go.

He does have all the tools at his disposal should New York properly develop him, though. The 24-year-old flourished during his final collegiate season before the gruesome leg injury cut it short. He threw for 2,756 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions. He won both ACC Player of the Year and ACC Offensive Player of the Year, and he finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting.

He left Florida State as the school’s career leader in total yards of offense (10,554), rushing yards by a QB (1,910) and rushing TDs by a QB (31).

Just as importantly, he’s clawed back from injury to reach the NFL.

“Never. I mean I love adversity,” Travis said when asked if he ever doubted he would play again. “I love waking up every single day and having to make a choice. It just makes the story a whole lot cooler. I’ve always said that from the day I broke my leg until now. I love it. There’s never been a doubt in my mind.”

Now, with the luxury of being able to take time to get right and get acclimated, Travis can maintain his focus on perfecting the little things needed to succeed as a pro — even if eventually proving himself part of the succession plan remains a constant in the back of his mind.

“I do think about that a lot,” Travis said about possibly taking over for Rodgers. “But right now I’m just focused where my feet are. Just getting healthy and getting everybody around me better. Being a great teammate.”

As for if he sees himself as a starter in the league, he’s as adamant as he was about returning from his injury.

“Yes, sir. 100 percent,” Travis said.

The current goal remains returning to full health for training camp. After that, he’ll have a chance to back that confidence up.
