In 2014, he played in all 16 games for the Jacksonville Jaguars but allowed eight sacks. Pro Football Focus ranked him the 67th-best offensive tackle in football and credited him with nearly 30 hurries allowed.
In 2015, his goal is to change all that.
"The biggest thing is strength and weight," Joeckel told the team's official website. "That was evident coming out of the season. That's been the main thing, the main focus. It's been going really well. Having a healthy offseason has been huge."
He added: "I definitely can see growth this offseason. Going into last season, I didn't feel like I had gotten stronger, gotten bigger and that I was ready to go out and play. This offseason, I can see it in the weight room, and I'm excited to get into OTAs and training camp and see where I am."
This year will almost certainly be the one in which Jaguars coaches will expect the most out of their former No. 2 overall pick. They have arguably one of the two best offensive line coaches in football in Doug Marrone, and they're putting Joeckel through an offseason program fully healthy.
But the reality is, the Jaguars need to start hitting on their top 10 picks before their residence there is permanent.
