Bio

Luke Joeckel is an offensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played college football at Texas A&M and was drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

EARLY YEARS

Joeckel was born on November 6, 1991 in Dallas, Texas. As a senior at Arlington High School, Joeckel was named an All-State offensive lineman. His twin brother, Matt, was the quarterback on that team.

According to Rivals.com, Joeckel was considered a four-star recruit and was named the fifth-best offensive tackle prospect in the class of 2010.

TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY

In his three-years in college, Joeckel started all 39 games at left tackle. As a freshman, he was named a Freshman All-American. As a sophomore, while protecting QB Ryan Tannehill, he earned second team All-Big 12 honors. As a junior, with Johnny Manziel at QB, Joeckel was named a unanimous All-American and was awarded the John Outland Trophy.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

Joeckel was drafted with the second-overall pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.

Despite playing left tackle in college, he started his career at right tackle due to veteran Eugene Monroe at left tackle. When Monroe was traded to the Baltimore Ravens in October 2013, Joeckel returned to the left side of the line. In his first start at left tackle, he sustained an ankle injury against the St. Louis Rams forcing him to miss the rest of his rookie season.
