RTC: Offensive line needs consistency

7/21/2014

How much of an overhaul has the Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive line undergone? Only one player that started in last season's opener will likely start in the 2014 season opener -- and at a different position.

That would be Luke Joeckel, who started at right tackle in the 2013 opener against Kansas City. He'll start at left tackle when the Jaguars open the season at Philadelphia on Sept. 7.

The biggest issue for the line the past several seasons, writes Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, is a lack of consistency. There were seven starting combinations in 2012 and five in 2013. The hope is that won't be the case with this year's line, which projects this way: Joeckel, left guard Zane Beadles, center Mike Brewster, right guard Jacques McClendon or Brandon Linder, and right tackle Austin Pasztor.
