Luke Joeckel adjusting to right side

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Luke Joeckel is going through an awkward stage.
   
His hand placement, foot stagger and set balance seem strange - all part of his transition from left to right tackle.
   
He might feel a bit off, but he looks just fine.
   
Joeckel has been downright dominant through two days of rookie minicamp, showing exactly why the Jaguars selected him with the second overall pick last week in the NFL draft.
   
He hasn't allowed a sack or even a pressure in team drills. It shouldn't be much of a surprise because he's going against undrafted rookies and tryout players. But it's surely a good start for the former Texas A&M standout who is playing a somewhat different position for the first time in years.
