No. 1 position where the Jaguars could have depth concerns: Interior offensive line

The Jaguars' offensive line is in transition, which is why analysts believe it could be a weakness next season. Rookie Anton Harrison will replace Jawaan Taylor at right tackle and while there's a good chance he might be an upgrade down the road, he'll probably take his lumps as a rookie. Walker Little will also take over at left tackle, with Cam Robinson slated to serve a multi-game suspension for violations to the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

It's possible that Little will end up being an upgrade at left tackle and Harrison has lots of upside but even if they both fare well, there are a few questions surrounding the interior offensive line. If any of the starters go down, veteran Tyler Shatley can fill in as he can play all three positions but if the Jags have more than one injury next season, they could then be in trouble.

Cole Van Lanen, rookie Cooper Hodges, and Chandler Brewer are currently the top options on the interior offensive line. All of them have potential but they haven't shown they can be counted on. On top of that, Shatley might need to take Ben Bartch's spot at left tackle if he still needs time to recover from the knee injury he suffered last year.

If Van Lanen or Brewer develop, the Jags won't have to worry about the interior offensive line, but if they don't they might consider reaching out to veteran Dalton Risner, who's still available, to ensure they don't miss a beat.
