Taylor (knee) and Cedric Ogbuehi have been rotating for first-team reps at right tackle, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.
Coach Doug Marrone indicated it remains an open competition and said, "It's way too early yet really to lock in a starter at that position with the stuff that we have going on with the offensive line." Taylor figures to have leg up for the starting job due to his higher upside as the team's rookie second-round pick, but he'll still have to prove himself throughout August to secure the job.
The Jaguars selected Taylor (knee) in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 35th overall.
Jacksonville moved up to the 35th pick to nab a player in Taylor that, coming into the draft, was projected to be a target for the Jaguars at No.7 overall. Taylor has the frame at 6-foot-5 and 312 pounds with long arms to immediately start at right tackle in Jacksonville. There are some reasons he fell to the second round, however; he can be sloppy in his technique at times, which made him susceptible to penalties at Florida. He also had a meniscus issue that, while not a structural issue, was enough to be a red flag, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
