2. Can the Jaguars offensive line gel despite undergoing changes?

The Jaguars' offensive line underwent several changes in the offseason. First, they let Jawaan Taylor walk in free agency and drafted Anton Harrison to replace him at right tackle. Also, Cam Robinson is set to serve a four-game suspension for PED violations, so Walker Little will line up at left tackle during his absence.

On top of that, left guard Ben Bartch is rehabbing a knee injury he sustained last year and might not be ready for the training camp. If he isn't good to go, veteran Tyler Shatley can take his place in the lineup.

All those questions have a few analysts wondering if the Jaguars' offensive trenches will hold up in 2023. And while the turnover is a legitimate concern, the team's brass isn't fretting and instead seems to feel comfortable and it's easy to see why.

Little made five starts at left tackle last year when Robinson went down with a meniscus injury and the offensive line didn't miss a beat. Regarding Shatley, he joined the starting lineup when Bartch got hurt, so the team isn't entering uncharted territory. On top of that, Harrison is a first-round talent and even if he goes through an adjustment period, he's poised to be a Day 1 starter, which wouldn't happen if Jacksonville didn't think he will be up to the task.

The bottom line is that the Jaguars' offensive line seems to be in good shape ahead of the 2023 season but if they run into a few speed bumps in training camp, they'll have the chance to adjust.
