It’s easy to see why the Jacksonville Jaguars are currently 0-2. They’re a young team with a head coach making his NFL debut. Also, they will have to live with the highs and lows of quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s rookie campaign.
There’s no doubt the Jaguars’ brass made took several important steps in the offseason in order to turn things around. But one year is not enough. The case could be made other teams have had success right away but every situation is different. In the Jags’ case, head coach Urban Meyer has been tasked to turn things around after years of futility. That won’t happen overnight.
It’s also worth noting that players who were supposed to have a big role in 2021 haven’t played up to expectations. The season is still early and there’s a chance they turn things around but the early results haven’t been encouraging.
Jacksonville Jaguars player who has disappointed No. 1 – Walker Little
Instead of addressing the left tackle position in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft, the Jaguars waited until the second round to take Walker Little with the 45th overall selection. The coaching staff praised the former Stanford Cardinal during the offseason, and it seemed as if he was poised to play a meaningful role early in the season. However, he’s been inactive in the first two games and was placed on the COVID-19 /Reserve list earlier this week.
Incumbent left tackle Cam Robinson is currently playing well, so it’s unlikely Walker will take his place anytime soon. In fact, it doesn’t look like the Texas native will see the field soon. Keep in mind that he last appeared in a meaningful football game back in 2019, so he might need more time to accustom to the NFL.
