Jaguars Rookie Luke Joeckel Getting Comfortable At Right Tackle
The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Luke Joeckel No. 2 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, and then did something you don't normally ask of No. 2 overall picks: They made him change positions.
With Eugene Monroe at left tackle, the Jaguars want Joeckel to get used to right tackle as a rookie. After three days of a rookie minicamp, it sounds like the transition is going well.
"It's feeling a lot better than I thought it would," Joeckel said, via the Florida Times-Union.
Monroe possibly is the Jaguars' best player, and they drafted another player at the same position. It seems likely that the Jaguars will let Monroe leave after 2013 in free agency, so Joeckel can move to the left side.
"I can go back there any time," Joeckel said. "That's really where my comfort zone is."
