Surprise, surprise, the Jags need a right tackle. Players like Eben Britton, Cameron Bradfield, and Guy Whimper have all been tried there in recent years, but with no success. Heading into the draft, the Jags find themselves still looking for a right tackle to play for them.
When asked who would be starting at right tackle for the Jaguars if they played tomorrow, GM Dave Caldwell responded, “That’s a good question. Good thing we don’t play tomorrow.”
To me, that sounds like the Jags will be in the market for a right tackle. Whether that comes in free agency or in the draft, the current crop of guys on the roster are obviously not part of that “good core” the team keeps going on about. Bradfield flashed some talent on occasion in 2012, but he is obviously not the answer at the position. Meanwhile, Guy Whimper has failed and “earned” a completely undeserved $1 million+ contract from ex-GM Gene Smith. It’s about time the Jags moved past what they have and brought in someone new.
Might I suggest blazing fast rookie Terron Armstead?
