2. The Jaguars must find the correct offensive line combination.
Before free agency, it looked like the Jaguars were ready to let left tackle Cam Robinson walk away in free agency but they threw a curveball at everyone when they applied the franchise on him for the second year in a row.
With Robinson firmly entrenched at left tackle and Brandon Scherff set to start at right guard, the Jags’ coaching staff must focus on who will take over the remaining spots in their offensive line. Tyler Shatley will most likely get the first crack at center but Jacksonville could scratch that plan if they sign someone like J.C. Tretter or Matt Paradis in free agency. Also, the Jags could take someone like Tyler Linderbaum (if available) or Dylan Parham in the draft and either one could compete with Shatley for the starting job.
Jawaan Taylor could enter training camp as the incumbent at right tackle but after struggling last season, he may need to compete with Walker Little for the job. Then there’s the left guard spot. Ben Bartch may line up there but if the Jags take Evan Neal with the top pick in the draft, he could be an early favorite to start at left guard.
While the Jags seem to be set at left tackle and right guard, there might be up to three training camp battles for the remaining spots. This is a good thing though, as competition brings out the best in everyone and the Jaguars’ brass must make sure Trevor Lawrence has the best possible protection upfront.
