Jaguars Agree To 4-Year Deal With No.2 Pick OT Luke Joeckel
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel, the team announced Saturday. Joeckel is the highest draft choice to sign a contract this offseason.
With Eugene Monroe entrenched at left tackle, Joeckel has been transitioning to right tackle in Jacksonville. The early reports on his progress have been overwhelmingly positive, starting with a downright dominant performance in rookie minicamp.
The front office believes the bookend combination of Monroe and Joeckel will provide Blaine Gabbert enough time in the pocket to develop into a passable NFL starting quarterback. The Jags allowed the third-most sacks in the league in 2012, with right tackle and left guard as the primary culprits.
