No. 2 unsung contributor in Jaguars training camp: Walker Little, OL
As noted before most of this players have had productive, if not outright, dominant training camp but they've somehow have failed to grab the limelight. In Walker Little's case, he may not be turning heads as he should because the left guard position and Anton Harrison's development at right tackle have gotten most of the attention.
Nevertheless, Little has shown that he'll be a more than capable replacement for Cam Robinson at left tackle while he serves his suspension for violating the league's PED policy. A second-round pick in the 2021 draft, Little has for the first time in his career slated to be the starter in the opener.
Last year, the Texas native competed with Jawaan Taylor for the right tackle job and began the season on the sidelines. And in his rookie season, he was learning the ropes behind Robinson, who was set to start after getting the franchise tag in the offseason.
Eventually, Little took over at left tackle when Robinson got hurt. He went on to make three starts in the regular season and two in the playoffs. Now, he's had the chance to pick up where he left off last year and he's made the most of it.
Early in the offseason, Bucky Brooks of NFL Media projected Little to have a breakout season in 2023. And based on the progress he's made, it looks like Brook's prediction was spot on.
