The Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line is a work in progress.
Head coach Urban Meyer also weighed in on the offensive line’s performance against the Browns. Keep in mind that Trevor Lawrence acknowledged that he might have held the ball too long, so the “hog mollies” shouldn’t shoulder all the blame for allowing four sacks.
Meyer feels like “Cam Robinson was pretty solid”. On the other hand, he thinks that Jawaan Taylor wasn’t great but he wasn’t awful either. Nevertheless, the head coach isn’t concerned, as the right tackle has had a great training camp, “so we’re good”.
Later, Meyer went over the Jaguars’ interior offensive linemen.
"A.J. [Cann] played very solid, he gave up one of pressure, but he’s been really solid all the way through. Linder didn’t play much obviously. Norwell has got one more week out, [Ben] Bartch actually did okay there, so we’re developing that third guard which we need."
Meyer also noted that rookie Walke Little struggled, “playing with low hands for some reason”. However, he also pointed out that the Stanford product had a great camp and added that the team is counting on him. Looking back, the Jaguars’ offensive line could have done a better job against Cleveland but they still have two games left to work out the kinks.
Simply, the Jaguars’ coaching staff aren’t ready to hit the panic button yet. As Meyer mentioned, most of the offensive line has had a great training camp and one game isn’t going to undo all the work they’ve put in throughout the summer. The Jags should be concerned if their offensive line woes continue in the following two weeks. For the time being, they need to keep working on the fundamentals.
