Luke Joeckel NFL Draft Bio

Luke Tobias Joeckel (born November 6, 1991) is an American football offensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Texas A&M University, won the Outland Trophy and was a consensus All-American in 2012. He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the second overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

A native of Arlington, Texas, Joeckel attended Arlington High School, where he was an All-State offensive lineman as a senior in 2009. He anchored an offensive line that averaged just under 475 yards per game. His twin brother Matt Joeckel played quarterback for Arlington. His older brother David played offensive lineman at DePauw. Joeckel's father, David, now a trial lawyer in Fort Worth, was a four-year letterman and three-year starter as an offensive lineman at Texas Tech (teammates with Joe Walter), under coaches Rex Dockery and Jerry Moore, 1979–1982. And his grandfather, Reece Washington, played tight end for Texas Tech.

Regarded as a four-star recruit by, Joeckel was listed as the No. 5 offensive tackle prospect of the class of 2010, behind only Seantrel Henderson, Robert Crisp, Shon Coleman, and James Hurst. Despite growing up as a Red Raiders fan, Joeckel chose Texas A&M over Texas Tech. He also had offers from Alabama, Louisiana State, Nebraska, and Oklahoma, among others.

Joeckel attended Texas A&M University, where he played for the Texas A&M Aggies football team from 2010 to 2012. He enrolled in January 2010, and went through the Aggies spring drills. As a true freshman in 2010, Joeckel started all 13 games at left tackle. The Aggies averaged over 165.8 rushing yards per game and featured a 100-yard rusher in nine games, six of which belong to Cyrus Gray. Joeckel earned Freshman All-American honors by the Football Writers Association of America and

As a sophomore in 2011, Joeckel started all 13 games again and was a second team All-Big 12 selection. He was part of an Aggies offensive front that allowed just nine sacks in 13 games, and allowed Ryan Tannehill to set school records for total (490.2 yards per game), passing (291.1 yards) and scoring (39.1 points) offense.

In his junior year, Joeckel started all 13 games at left tackle, protecting freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel's blind side as he went on to pass for 3,706 yards over the season, earning him Heisman, Manning, and O'Brien honors. Joeckel himself was recognized as a unanimous All-American selection. NFL scouts praised his performance against Louisiana State's talented defensive line, in which Joeckel matched-up well against defensive end Sam Montgomery. “I think he is better than Joe Thomas and Matt Kalil,” one NFL GM said according to Pro Football Weekly.

Joeckel played alongside Jake Matthews, who played right tackle from 2010–12. When Joeckel left Texas A&M, Matthews switched to left tackle in 2013. In September 2013, an writer asked five NFL executives who's the better player. Three of the five executives said Joeckel.
