Jacksonville Jaguars: 4 players with feast or famine prospects in 2021
1. Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson
The Jaguars have plenty of talent at running back and wide receiver. They have a dynamic running back duo in rookie Travis Etienne and James Robinson. They also added Marvin Jones Jr. to a crowded wide receiver room. They are making sure rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence has enough weapons at his disposal, but will he have enough time to get them the ball?
Even though the team’s brass made several additions to most positional groups this offseason, they brought back all their starting offensive linemen from 2020. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Left guard Andrew Norwell, center Brandon Linder, and right guard A.J. Cann played held their own last year but the same can’t be said about left tackle Cam Robinson and right tackle Jawaan Taylor.
While Taylor regressed in 2020 after showing promise the season before, Robinson has been inconsistent throughout his four-year career. Nevertheless, the team believes he can still reach his potential and applied the franchise tag on him earlier this year.
There’s a legitimate chance the Alabama product does play at a high level in 2021. Last season, Garrett Bolles became an upper-echelon left tackle after struggling early in his career. It’s possible that Robinson makes a similar leap but it’s not a sure thing either. If he doesn’t improve, Lawrence may not have enough time to find his receiving targets. Also, he could be benched in favor of offensive tackle Walker Little, who hasn’t played a snap in the NFL yet.
