The offensive line is going to be an area the Jacksonville Jaguars likely attack in the 2018 NFL Draft, especially on the interior and potentially at right tackle to prepare for the future. On Tuesday, along with some tight ends, the Jaguars will host Oklahoma offensive lineman Orlando Brown.
In recent years, the #Jaguars hosted big-name, top-of-the-draft prospects all at once. Tougher to do picking No. 29. ... But they have Hayden Hurst, #Oklahoma TE Mark Andrews and #OU OT Orlando Browns in tomorrow for visits, among others.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 2, 2018
Brown is a massive offensive lineman, standing at 6’8 and weighing in at 360 pounds and 35” arms. Most slate him as a potential starting right tackle in the NFL, though there are some concerns with his athletic testing during the draft process. He’s viewed as a right tackle-only type of player, which often can tank their draft value, though most view Brown as a late first, early second round type of player.
For the Jaguars, he would make sense early on in the draft even though he’s likely a right tackle only. The Jaguars current starting right tackle, Jermey Parnell,
is a free agent after this season has one year remaining on his contract, so the team could be looking for his eventual replacement.
