LT Luke Joeckel: C
Things just keep getting worse for this offensive line.
After playing just 12 snaps against the Rams, starting left tackle Luke Joeckel was carted off with a fractured ankle and will now miss the rest of the season, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
While the No. 2 overall pick in 2013 draft has struggled this season—according to PFF, Joeckel has graded out as the 57th-ranked tackle in the NFL—the experience he was gaining was huge for his career.
Switching back to his natural position at left tackle against the Rams, Joeckel was looking to turn the corner and show fans why he was taken No. 2 overall.
LT Cameron Bradfield: D
Playing for the injured Joeckel, backup up tackle Cameron Bradfield played poorly. Finishing the game with a minus-5.8 grade, according to PFF's metrics, Bradfield struggled in pass- and run-blocking situations.
Unless he drastically improves, it's going to be a tough year for the Jaguars at the left tackle position.
LG Will Rackley: C-
Left guard Will Rackley put together another dismal performance against the Rams. With no positive trend in sight, Rackley finished with his fifth consecutive negative grade, according to PFF.
C Brad Meester: B
Despite being surrounded by a cast of clunkers on the offensive line, Jaguars center Brad Meester actually had a decent game against the Rams.
Playing all 60 offensive snaps, Meester was the one of two Jaguars offensive lineman to finish with a positive grade for the day.
RG Uche Nwaneri: D+
All in all, it was a rough day in St. Louis for right guard Uche Nwaneri.
While he had his moments in pass protection, Nwaneri had major issues with his run blocking. On film, it was a poor display of technique as he missed his assignments frequently.
RT Austin Pasztor: B+
Although he was originally listed as a guard on this roster, Austin Pasztor made his season debut starting at right tackle for the Jaguars.
Using PFF's metrics, Pasztor finished with a positive 1.8 grade. Helping set the edge for Maurice Jones-Drew's 20-yard scamper, Pasztor may have the potential to standout on this offensive line.
For an undrafted player who landed with the Jaguars last season, Pasztor's journey to become a starter has been a long time coming, according to Jacksonville.com.
