3. Anton Harrison, right tackle

Credit where credit is due. Trent Baalke should get recognition for letting Jawaan Taylor walk in free agency and replacing him with Anton Harrison with the 27th overall selection in last year's draft. You could argue that Taylor will be playing in the Super Bowl, but you will be hard-pressed to find someone who genuinely thinks he played a huge role in making it all the way. Meanwhile, Harrison has become a mainstay of the offensive line after somewhat of a rough start to his NFL career.

Harrison's worst outing probably came in Week 2, when he gave up two sacks and three total pressures. Then again, he went against Chris Jones. Not many first-year players would've fared well against the All-Pro defensive lineman. Heck, Jones himself said the future was bright for Harrison. He was right. The former Oklahoma Sooner got better as the year progressed, allowing no sacks and just 10 total pressures in the last eight games. That's a considerable improvement in a short span of time.

What makes Harrison's promising rookie season more impressive is that he had mostly lined up at left tackle in college and had to get accustomed to playing on the right side while getting acclimated to the NFL. Heading into Year 2, the Washington D.C. native says he wouldn't be opposed to moving back to left tackle, noting that it would be up to the coaches to decide where to play. Trent Baalke, for his part, doesn't rule it out.

When you consider that the Jaguars may move on from incumbent Cam Robinson to get cap relief, having Harrison play left tackle in his sophomore campaign is a possibility. Regardless of where he plays, he should only get better.
