Jaguars player with trade value No. 2 – Cam Robinson, LT

Left tackle Cam Robinson has been solid in 2021, starting all six games and appearing in 98 percent of the Jaguars’ offensive snaps. The 2017 second-round pick has been far from perfect but he has not allowed a single sack this season, and that’s something teams in need of offensive line help may have noticed.

Robinson isn’t a top trade target but teams that want to shore up the left tackle position may the tempted to call the Jaguars… and they should decline. Jacksonville applied the franchise tag on the Alabama product earlier this year, expecting him to become a cornerstone player. While that hasn’t happened yet and probably won’t, the Jags don’t have anyone to turn to right now and are better off keeping him for the remainder of the season.

Rookie Walker Little had an outstanding training camp but has been inactive in all but one game this season. If he were ready, the team’s brass might not have trouble moving on from Robinson. if Little were the better option right now, he would likely start over Robinson but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

The Jags may move on from Robinson next season if Little shows he’s ready. Or if they find an upgrade in free agency. However, they need to keep him for the time being. As it is, they’re missing two offensive line starters. It wouldn’t make much sense to trade Robinson and deplete the unit even more in the process.
