The Jacksonville Jaguars also need to get a blindside protector.
Left tackle Cam Robinson is set to become a free agent and while the Jaguars could bring him back, they could opt to either sign a free agent such as Trent Williams or take a left tackle prospect early in the draft. This year’s class is going to be a deep one, so the team could use the 25th overall pick to address other roster needs and still land a good one in the second round.
Moreover, Robinson will likely command top money in the open market, as the demand for left tackles, even average ones, outweighs the demand. If the Jaguars want to take one in the draft, Liam Eichenberg of Notre Dame should be available at 33.
The former Fighting Irish left tackle was a three-year starter and has the prototypical size to play the position at the NFL level. Eichenberg excels as a run blocker but isn’t necessarily bad in pass protection.
Due to the abundance at the position in this year’s draft, he may slide to the second round, where the Jaguars could target him, which makes sense if they want to address their defense with their second first-round pick.
