Some of these CBs may not be with the Jacksonville Jaguars for much longer.

10. Corey Straughter – The Louisiana-Monroe is one of two players — DJ Daniel is the other one — Jacksonville signed after this year’s draft concluded. Corey Straughter’s odds of making the roster are low. Nevertheless, several undrafted free agents have made it in recent years, so he has a legitimate shot albeit a slim one.

9. DJ Daniel – The Jags signed cornerback DJ Daniel as an undrafted free agent in 2021. He has a steep hill to climb to make the roster but would be a nice developmental project. At this point, the practice squad looks like the safest bet for Daniel.

8. Luc Barcoo – Regardless of how good at drafting players was, former Jaguars general manager David Caldwell had a penchant for finding undrafted free agents, one of them was Luc Barcoo. He saw the field out of necessity last season as the team had no one else to turn to. The fact he appeared in three games with one start is worth pointing out. On the other hand, he may have a hard time making the team this time around after all the additions Jacksonville made to their cornerback room this offseason.

7. Brandon Rusnak – An undrafted free agent in 2019, Brandon Rusnak (formerly Brandon Watson) signed with the Jaguars and has become a key contributor on special teams. He hasn’t recorded a pass deflection or an interception over his two-year career. He will have to show his worth on special teams if he wants to stick around.
