JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The similarities between Luke Joeckel and Tony Boselli are striking.
Close in size, weight and playing style, Joeckel and Boselli have so much in common that even their baby-faced, draft-day photos are being compared side by side.
The Jaguars hope their NFL resumes look the same in five years.
Joeckel, the Texas A&M offensive tackle selected second overall in the draft, was formally introduced in Jacksonville Friday. He sat down with owner Shad Khan, general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley before meeting new teammates.
He'll have to wait a little longer to meet Boselli, the second overall pick by Jacksonville in 1995 who made five consecutive Pro Bowls.
Joeckel says, "It's great to have those comparisons, but I've just got to go live up to them now."
