The Jacksonville Jaguars report for training camp on July 26 with practices beginning July 27. The Jaguars offensive line is usually poo-poo'ed by most, but it's actually a unit that has the makings to be very good. Four of the five starting positions are set. Eugene Monroe will be the left tackle, Will Rackley the left guard, Brad Meester the center, Uche Nwaneri the right guard, and then a big question mark at right tackle.

The only really battle will be at that position. Eben Britton should be penciled in as the starter to begin training camp at right tackle, but there is no way to tell how he will actually hold up until there are full pads and contact as he's coming back from a back injury that sidelined him virtually the entire 2011 season. Britton will be going up against Guy Whimper, who's a serviceable back up, but shouldn't be in the starting lineup if Britton is healthy.
