The Jaguars secured a promising offensive tackle prospect with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, selecting Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel on Thursday evening.

In his final season as the Aggies’ left tackle in 2012, Joeckel garnered the Outland Trophy, the award given to college football’s top interior lineman. The 6-6, 306-pound Joeckel declared for the draft with one season of eligibility remaining.

It’s unclear whether Joeckel fits at left tackle (currently held down by the capable Eugene Monroe) or at right tackle with Jacksonville. Either way, Joeckel figures as a Day One starter for the Jaguars.
