Jaguars rebuild O-line and more in 2022 three-round mock draft
Jaguars mock draft, third round, 65th overall pick, Alec Lindstrom, OL.
Last year, Meyer’s offense did a putrid job of protecting their prized rookie. Lawrence was blitzed a whopping total of 147 times, with defenses getting to him 32 times. Those 32 sacks need to go down next season. That should be another priority for the incoming regime. The Jaguars need to surround Lawrence with an improved offensive line, and luckily for them, they can add depth twice in the third round.
The six-foot-three, 298-pound center is slightly undersized, but that can be remedied by the Jaguars’ training staff. Lindstrom excelled at pass protection at Boston College, where he played 787 snaps. More importantly, PFF graded him at 84.6 in pass blocking. He has magnificent feet and a technically refined skillset, which should bode well for him in the NFL.

The Jaguars could also add another pass-blocking extraordinaire in the third round by way of Washington State. Lucas, much like Lindstrom, has rave reviews in that department. PFF grades him 91.0 for last season where he played 801 snaps at right tackle.
He has an imposing figure, standing at a fearsome six-foot-seven and weighing in at 319 pounds. The man simply dominates incoming pass rushers. Lucas’s lower body strength is noticeable as he plants his feet and, combined with a dominant stance, keeps his quarterback upright. A violent blocker, Lucas would surely transition into a solid starter with the right tutelage in Jacksonville.
