The Jacksonville Jaguars have done a good job of revamping the roster this offseason and they will have the opportunity to keep adding talent in the 2021 NFL Draft. They have ten selections at their disposal and it will be interesting to see if they will use any of them on an offensive guard, as they have bigger needs but can’t totally neglect the position.

The Jaguars have a couple of solid starting guards in A.J. Cann and Andrew Norwell. They also re-signed Tyler Shatley, their primary interior offensive line backup, this offseason, so the group looks in good shape ahead of the draft. However, the team’s brass needs to replenish the group as both Cann and Norwell are set to become free agents next year.

Ben Bartch started a few games in 2020 and showed promise but ended the year in the COVID-19 reserve list and even if he earns more playing time in 2021, this Jacksonville team should replenish the offensive guard position in the draft.

Head coach Urban Meyer has implied the Jags will draft Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence first overall, but even if they weren’t, taking a guard with the top pick wouldn’t make sense. They have another first-round selection, the 25th overall pick, but they will likely address other needs with it. On the bright side, they will have eight more selections, and they could use one (or two) of them on an interior lineman.

Here are the top 10 offensive guards the Jags can take in 2021’s draft.
