No. 2 Jaguars player who may not last the whole season on the 53-man roster: Christian Braswell, CB
The Jaguars cornerback room has the right mix of experience and upside. They have a pair of talented starters in Tyson Campbell and Darious Williams and a grizzled veteran manning the slot in Tre Herndon. On the other hand, sophomores Gregory Junior and Montaric Brown hardly played last year but they showed enough growth throughout the preseason to make you think they can deliver if their name is called.
The youngest of the bunch is rookie Christian Braswell. The former Rutgers standout seemed like a long shot to make the team given the depth at the position. However, he made the most of his playing time in the preseason and ended up making the cut.
That said, don't expect Braswell to see the field much, at least early in his NFL career. In fact, it won't be shocking to see him being a healthy scratch for a handful of games next season. This isn't by any means indicative of his capability to perform. Simply, there are other players ahead of him on the depth chart. Add his inexperience and the Jaguars could release him to pave the way to another player at another position.
Another thing working against Braswell is Chris Claybrooks' potential return from the commissioner's list. As of this writing, it's unknown how long his stay will be but if he returns, Jacksonville could give him Braswell's roster spot. Then again, the rookie corner will have a chance to prove he deserves to remain on the team the whole season.
