Even though you won’t find the Jacksonville Jaguars’ roster at the top of many power rankings, they arguably have more talent than they had in the previous two years. The team’s brass made an effort to improve the talent level at most position groups in free agency and the draft.
There’s currently a mix of veterans and youngsters on the Jaguars’ roster and there are a handful of players with a realistic shot at making the Pro Bowl in 2022. Here are the five with the best chance.
No. 5 Jaguars players who could make the Pro Bowl: Tyson Campbell, CB
The Jaguars started revamping a roster devoid of playmakers last year. One of the players they added that could end up becoming a mainstay of their defense as soon as 2022 is cornerback Tyson Campbell.
Cornerback didn’t seem like a need ahead of last year’s draft after signing Shaquill Griffin and bringing back Sidney Jones. However, general manager Trent Baalke has previously talked about finding a balance between choosing the best players available and need and it looks like he applied this philosophy when taking Campbell with the 33rd overall pick.
In the end, the selection paid off even though Campbell’s transition to the NFL wasn’t particularly smooth. Although the former Georgia Bulldog struggled early in the 2021 season, he progressively got better and went on to lead the Jags in interceptions with two. There’s a chance he will get even better in 2022.
Slated to start opposite Griffin in Week 1, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Campell double his interception totals in 2022 and earn a Pro Bowl nod.
