3 ways Jaguars can fix the offensive line this offseason
The Jaguars could come away with two starting linemen this April.
The Jaguars probably hoped Cam Robinson would become a stalwart offensive tackle, but he might be gone after this offseason instead. He’s been solid, but at the same time, he hasn’t lived up to expectations. Regardless, a new regime will likely want to start over with regard to the offensive line. Having the first pick overall will help, but so does having two third-round choices.
To get things going, they could draft Evan Neal from Alabama and set themselves up with a potential franchise tackle. At six-foot-seven and 350 pounds, Neal has the physical tools to come in and make an immediate impact. His technique will need to be refined, but his athleticism, sheer size, and physical frame make up for any shortcomings.
If the Jaguars are feeling lucky, however, they could move the first pick, move down and select Darian Kinnard out of Kentucky. By doing this, they could acquire more future draft capital.
Although drafting Neal appears to be the consensus right now, the Jags have plenty of time to consider how they’re going to use the first overall selection. Thus, trading down and selecting Kinnard shouldn’t be ruled out just yet. After all, they have several needs to address and they could use whatever extra picks they get to take care of them.
