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. Jul 19 - 4:12 PM

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.

Jaguars RT Luke Joeckel (hip) resumed working on the side Wednesday.

Joeckel's been sidelined over a week with a hip flexor, but would reportedly be ready to go if it was the regular season. It's not a concern, though Joeckel may enter Week 1 with just one preseason appearance to his name.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Luke Joeckel's contract with the Jaguars contains no offset language.

Joeckel was able to land a fully-guaranteed four-year, $21.2 million deal. His $13.8 million signing bonus is also the largest given to a rookie this season. With the Dolphins expected to insist on offset language, the deal could have an impact on negotiations with No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan.

Jaguars signed No. 2 overall pick RT Luke Joeckel to a four-year contract.

Joeckel is the tenth first-rounder to sign. The signing should help the Chiefs hammer out a deal with No. 1 pick Eric Fisher. Joeckel was a dominant left tackle at Texas A&M, but he's switching to the right side in Jacksonville due to the presence of Eugene Monroe. By all accounts, the transition has gone smoothly. Joeckel has said it's "feeling a lot better than I thought it would."

Despite admitting to some discomfort in his adjustment to right tackle, Jaguars first-round pick Luke Joeckel has been "downright dominant" through two days of rookie minicamp.

According to the Associated Press, Joeckel hasn't allowed a single sack or even quarterback hurry in team drills. Joeckel is competing against UDFAs and tryout players, but it's notable after his previous comments. "It's feeling a lot better than I thought it would," Joeckel said Saturday. Joeckel will face more of a test against Jeremy Mincey and Jason Babin at full-squad OTAs.

No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel said he wasn’t "totally comfortable" at right tackle in his first NFL practice Friday.

"It was different," admitted Joeckel, a 37-game starter at left tackle at Texas A&M. "My first step wasn’t as quick. It will be a work in progress, but I felt pretty good about today. I can’t rush it. It will take a while to feel totally comfortable." Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was impressed with what he saw out of Joeckel, saying "he'll get it" after more reps.
