With just 92 days until kickoff, let’s talk about the greatest No. 92 in Jacksonville Jaguars history — Rob Meier.

Rob Meier (2000-2008)

Probably the most productive seventh-round draft pick for the team, Meier was another one of those versatile defensive lineman who was never quite a starter, but was a big part of the defensive line's success in former head coach Jack Del Rio's brief playoff runs in the mid-2000's. After playing sparingly under Tom Coughlin, he was given more and more playing time as his career went on, playing in all but one game in his final four seasons and compiling 17 sacks.

In nine years, Meier missed just six games. And played all 16 games in seven of his nine seasons in the NFL. He also never missed a game in his four years at Washington.

FUN FACT: Born in Vancouver, Meier was also the No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 CFL Draft.
