5 offseason moves Jaguars can make to improve the offense in 2022
5. The Jaguars must address the offensive line in every way possible.
If you look closely you can see the offensive line flinch. It is no secret that the Jaguars’ offensive line is in need of upgrades. They are constantly tasked with trying to block for a team that is playing from behind more often than not. It has been Cam Robinson, Andrew Norwell, Brandon Linder, A.J. Cann, and Jawaan Taylor anchoring the line for a couple of years now.
The Jags could upgrade this line with the addition of a few free agents. Having depth will go a long way with a group such as the offensive line. They are out there on every offensive snap. Crashing into the defensive line to try to move the ball down the field. Piles happen and injuries sometimes could ruin the chances of a team winning games on a regular basis.
Good help is hard to find. The Jaguars should re-sign Tyler Shatley due to the ability to replace the interior of the line. Cam Robinson is playing with urgency while playing on the franchise tag. He could provide quality depth at the tackle position. I would not consider him a top-end offensive tackle but he could be relied on to protect the quarterback and block for run plays on a consistent basis. Ben Bartch can contribute when called upon. As well as Walker Little, who has shown he can step in the future.
The biggest move that I would make is to draft the bookend tackle in Evan Neal. If you do that and it pans out, you could shift some players around and develop a well-rounded line. It would be an experienced unit with a good mixture of veterans along with some youth to push each other. Jacksonville needs to let Cann go in free agency to explore other options. Jawaan Taylor becomes a question mark and could be traded away to bring in someone that could step into the interior of the offensive line.
Some free agents to consider would be Brandon Scherff, Trent Brown, Terron Armstead, and Morgan Moses. These players have some experience in starting roles. They have a few years left in their tanks and would upgrade the positions. Brown and Armstead will probably try to re-sign with their respective teams. Moses plays for the Jets but would probably not mind being a part of something that might be a few short pieces away from being competitive.
