Jaguars 2021 Training Camp Outlook: Offensive line is better than you think

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars Rookie Minicamp Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The 2021 Jacksonville Jaguars will look quite a bit different than their 2020 counterpart, in large part because the entire coaching staff has been upended and replaced and the team picked a quarterback with the first overall pick. The team is also going through with a change in defensive schemes, so even that will look quite different.

Training camp starts just around the corner, so we can start looking through the positions to get an idea of where we are and what we can look to.

Next up, the offensive line.

Starter(s)

The Jaguars offensive line should more or less be the same as it was for the 2020 season. The line often is the target of a lot of fan frustration and criticism, but such is the life of the offensive line, because they’re often only noticed when they make a mistake. We should see Cam Robinson, Andrew Norwell, Brandon Linder, AJ Cann and Jawaan Taylor as the starting five, from left tackle to right tackle. I don’t see much movement here, the only possibility is if one of the rookies really stands out and something like Cam Robinson kicks inside, but even then I think that chance is low.

Depth

After years and years of panic after a single starter goes down, the Jaguars offensive line depth might be pretty good. You have depth players like Tyler Shatley, Will Richardson Jr., Ben Bartch and the recent addition of Walker Little. Little specifically has been someone who has been impressive through the process so far, despite missing this past college season. Shatley and Richardson have shown the ability to step in in a pinch and not be a massive liability, albeit a step down.
