Since 2013, the Jaguars have the second-fewest rushing yards in the league while allowing the most sacks.
Simply put, Jacksonville's line has been a disgrace. Much of that has to do with Luke Joeckel, who's been a major disappointment. In 2014, the former No. 2 overall pick finished 67th out of 84 qualified tackles in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Joeckel said he was "too light" and has bulked up to 311 pounds this offseason. Despite Jacksonville's overall poor performance, the guard play was passable last year as both Brandon Linder and Zane Beadles received positive PFF grades. Apr 26 - 8:59 AM

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel has already added 10-12 pounds since last season.

Joeckel's priority this offseason is to add strength and quality weight after he got down as low as 280 pounds in 2014. He wants to play up at 310-315 pounds, necessary numbers for an NFL left tackle. We're certainly not writing off the talented Joeckel even though he has been a liability rather than an asset through two seasons.

The Jaguars expect to have LT Luke Joeckel (concussion) available this week.

Joeckel was cleared to return from his concussion and is officially probable. Last year's No. 2 overall pick, Joeckel has struggled in pass protection this season. He's allowed 13 quarterback hurries through eight games.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (concussion) has been cleared for non-contact work.

Joeckel still has some steps to get through in the concussion protocol, but has not been ruled out of Sunday's game at Cincy.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel was forced from Jacksonville's Week 8 game against the Dolphins with a concussion, and will not return.

Joeckel went down in the first quarter. Undrafted rookie Josh Wells is now in the game on Blake Bortles' blindside. Joeckel has struggled mightily this season, but it's still a major downgrade for a Jags team searching for its second win. Joeckel should be considered week to week.

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch said second-year LT Luke Joeckel looks more athletic and faster this season.

"He looked more athletic than I remember him," Fisch said. "When he was doing his rehab, he spent so much time on his lower body, he came back looking faster." Joeckel missed the final 11 games of last year to ankle surgery. He struggled in his only start at left tackle, but will be returning to an improved offensive line. Austin Pasztor will bookend Joeckel at right tackle.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (broken ankle) is participating at OTAs.

Last year's No. 2 overall pick will have a plate and two wires inside his right ankle for the rest of his life, but Joeckel is all systems go. "I had no problems at all this week," said Joeckel, who doesn't turn 23 until November. "It felt good." Joeckel played 272 snaps as a rookie, 260 at right tackle. Pro Football Focus graded him negatively as both a run and pass blocker. He'll play left tackle this year.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (broken ankle, injured reserve) will have his cast removed Wednesday and begin weight-bearing exercises.

Joeckel, the No. 2 overall pick in April, broke his right ankle October 6. GM Dave Caldwell reiterated the team fully expects Joeckel to be ready for the start of the upcoming offseason workout schedule. Cameron Bradfield has been filling in at left tackle for the Jaguars, with Austin Pasztor on the right side.

Jaguars placed LT Luke Joeckel on injured reserve with a broken ankle, ending his season.

The No. 2 overall pick of April's draft will undergo surgery later this week. Coach Gus Bradley "definitely" expects Joeckel to be ready for the Jaguars' offseason program. Making the full-time switch to left tackle, Joeckel would benefit immensely from a full offseason. Joeckel turns 23 in November.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley expects LT Luke Joeckel (broken right ankle) to "definitely" be ready for the team's offseason program.

Bradley also revealed Joeckel will undergo surgery "sooner rather than later." With Eugene Monroe sold to the Ravens for a song, the Jags are moving forward with Cameron Bradfield at left tackle. Bradfield was shaky in 764 snaps a season ago.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel says his broken ankle is not a "career-ending or career-threatening thing."

We're only posting because it's a bit eye-brow raising Joeckel felt the need to say that. Nevertheless, there's no reason to believe he won't be 100 percent for next summer's camp. The No. 2 overall pick of the 2013 draft will be returning from a rookie season where he got dominated in his five-game cup of coffee.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel is out for the season due to a fractured right ankle.

If the 0-5 Jags weren't at rock bottom before, they certainly are now. Joeckel, the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft, was just installed at left tackle thanks to the Eugene Monroe trade. But after getting rolled up from behind early in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Rams, 2013 turns into a lost season. The Jags will be forced to turn to Cameron Bradfield at left tackle, making matters even more difficult for the two-headed disaster of Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel left Sunday's Week 5 game at St. Louis with an ankle injury and is doubtful to return.

Joeckel was run-blocking near the end of the first quarter when a Rams defender unintentionally rolled into the back of his right leg. The No. 2 overall pick -- making his first start at left tackle thanks to the Eugene Monroe -- went down in a heap and had to be carted off. Cameron Bradfield came on and immediately surrendered a pressure that led to a Blaine Gabbert pick-six.

Jaguars first-round RT Luke Joeckel said he needs to "clear my mind and play football" and "not have the mental stuff."

Making the adjustment to the NFL is already hard enough, but on top of that Joeckel is still learning a new position. He was a left tackle in college. "I have to get over the mental errors," Joeckel said. "I've never been a Mental Error Guy but there are a lot of things going on." He's committed two false start penalties and given up two sacks and five hurries through two games.

Jaguars first-round RT Luke Joeckel reportedly "just doesn't look comfortable" through two NFL games.

Joeckel has played all 145 snaps for the Jags so far this season, grading out as ProFootballFocus' No. 51 tackle among 68 qualifiers. The No. 2 overall pick has already given up two sacks, five quarterback hurries and committed two false start penalties. It's part of the reason the Jags rank dead last in yards per game.
