No. 3 Jaguars player who could be cut before playing a snap in 2023: Chandler Brewer
The Jaguars' brass has made it clear building around Trevor Lawrence is one of their top priorities, and to ensure their franchise quarterback stays healthy throughout the 2023 season, they made a handful of changes to their offensive line. For starters, they let Jawaan Taylor in free agency and drafted Oklahoma's Anton Harrison to take his place at right tackle.
Also, Walker Little will move back to left tackle after competing with Taylor for the starting job last year. The former Stanford Cardinal will have a chance to seize the job full-time while Cam Robinson serves a suspension at right tackle.
Right guard Brandon Scherff should be better in Year 2, and sophomore Luke Fortner should also make strides at center. The biggest question mark on the Jaguars' offensive line probably lies at left guard, with incumbent Ben Bartch still recovering from the knee injury he sustained last year.
If Bartch isn't ready to go, the coaching staff will most likely plug in veteran Tyler Shatley at left guard and Cole Van Lanen would then become the top backup on the interior offensive line. Another option would be Chandler Brewer, who joined the Jaguars in the offseason.
Brewer signed with the Los Angeles Rams after going undrafted in 2019 and ended up playing 17 offensive snaps that year. He opted out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and spent the 2021 season in the Ram's practice squad. He was able to work his way up the roster and appeared in six games with four starts last season.
In Jacksonville, Brewer will probably need to compete with Van Lanen to make the cut. While he's progressively gotten better over the last two years, Van Lanen might hold the edge by virtue of having been around longer.
