No. 3 projected free agent the Jaguars should target in 2024: Jermaine Eluemunor, OL

The Jaguars could have a burden of choice kind of thing going on at offensive tackle next year. Cam Robinson is currently serving a four-game suspension for violations to the PED policy and Walker Little is currently filling in for him at left tackle. It's uncertain what the coaching staff will do when Robinson is back in the fold but they will have enviable depth at the position once he's reinstated.

Having said that, there's a chance they'll move on from Robinson after the 2023 season — given his cap number of $21.6 million — and roll with Little. On the right side, Anton Harrison should be able to become a fixture by the end of the year.

So let's say Little and Harrison will be the Jaguars' opening-day starters in 2024, they don't have much depth behind them. They just released Josh Wells from Injured Reserve with an injury settlement. They currently have Blake Hance on the roster but maybe they should consider kicking the tires on Jermaine Eluemunor.

A fifth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2017, Eluemunor spent a couple seasons with the New England Patriots before joining the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021. Throughout his career, he's started 71 games with 32 starts.

The 2022 season marked the first time Eluemunor started all 17 games. He held his own and improved as the year went on. However, he's not a top-tier offensive tackle and may be better suited for a backup role. If he hits the open market next year, he would be an appealing swing-tackle option for the Jaguars.
