    *Guard: Like the two aforementioned positions, a rookie draft selection is a factor in the training camp discussion at guard.

    And like quarterback and receiver, the lost off-season won’t help.

    The Jaguars selected Will Rackley, a guard from Lehigh University, in the third round of the draft with the idea that he will develop into a long-term, front-line starter. He is expected to be a major contributor in the future, but may need time to develop.

    It seems Rackley likely will compete with veteran Vince Manuwai and Justin Smiley at left guard during training camp, with Uche Nwaneri relatively entrenched at the right guard position. When discussing guard, you also have to discuss center, and veteran Brad Meester seems likely to be the starter there at least one more season.

    The Jaguars certainly want to get younger and better on the interior of the line, and to hear Smith discuss Rackley after the draft, it’s obvious he believes the rookie will be a key factor on the interior of the line for many years. How quickly he can fill that role will be something to watch in training camp.
