The Jacksonville Jaguars finally got the quarterback they’ve been hoping for after signing Nick Foles this offseason.
Unfortunately for Foles, the Jaguars offensive line as it is right now could use a bit more help in protecting him too much next season.
The Jaguars are doing what they can to address the offensive line by checking in with prospects in this year’s draft.

While many mock drafts have the Jaguars taken Florida’s Jawaan Taylor, they are now reportedly meeting with other prospects as well to keep their options open. Washington’s Kaleb McGary is becoming increasingly more likely to be a first round pick. While the Jaguars may be reaching at McGary with their seventh overall pick, he could very well be worth reaching for.
Jawaan Taylor can reportedly play guard in addition to tackle so that may give him the edge over other top prospects going forward. The Jaguars could use a lot of help on the line considering Foles is the farthest thing from a mobile quarterback.
In addition, running back Leonard Fournette has suffered a long list of injuries so getting him protection this season could mean a big season for the third year back.
Jacksonville has one of the more complete rosters in the league, but they drastically underachieved in 2018 after making the AFC Championship the season prior.
Most teams who succeed in the league have a great offensive line so if the Jaguars want to get back on track, they are taking the necessary steps.
