No. 4 Jaguars player who could make the Pro Bowl in 2023: Cam Robinson
Not everybody on this list is a newcomer but left tackle Cam Robinson should have an equal shot to make the Pro Bowl. A second-selection in the 2017 draft, it took the Alabama product a while to hit his stride. He had a solid yet unspectacular rookie campaign and was supposed to make strides in 2018. However, a torn ACL cut his sophomore season short.
Robinson went on to make 30 combined starts the next two years but wasn’t particularly impressive. Still, the Jaguars slapped him with the franchise tag last offseason hoping he would finally turn the corner. The decision paid off, as the left tackle went on to have the best year of his NFL career.
Besides posting a Pro Football Focus overall grade of 67.4 last year, Robinson allowed just one sack and 31 total pressures, the best mark of his career when playing at least 14 games in a season. Following the 2021 season, the Jags once again placed the franchise tag on Robinson but this time, they also gave him a three-year contract worth $54 million.
While Robinson gave up five total pressures in the season opener, he’s allowed a mere three in the last three games and none against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. As a matter of fact, he posted an 84.1 PFF pass-blocking grade in that contest.
Some players need more time than others to turn the corner and the Jags’ patience and trust in Robinson has paid off.
