No. 2 Jaguars player with trade value following the preseason, Tre Herndon, CB

The Jaguars have built a well-rounded cornerback room over the last two years and they didn't have to invest significant resources to do so. Sure, they did sign Darious Williams last year but other than that, they've focused on developing young players at the position.

This approach has paid off as Montaric Brown and Gregory Junior, two Day 3 picks in last year's draft, seem to be ready to contribute in 2023. Similarly, rookie Christian Braswell looks like a keeper. The depth at cornerback could lead the Jaguars to either shop some of their veterans or get inquiries about them.

In particular, Tre Herndon could be an enticing trade option despite the fact that Jacksonville just re-signed him in the offseason. Back in 2021, general manager Trent Baalke traded Sidney Jones just months after bringing him back. It wouldn't be shocking if he did the same with Herndon this year.

An undrafted free agent in 2018, the Vanderbilt product can line up inside or outside and has starting experience. He's one of the team's longest-tenured players on defense but Jacksonville may need to move on from him to pave the way for their younger corners.

Make no mistake, Herndon is well-regarded in the building but Junior has shown enough progress this offseason and deserves a shot to handle slot duties. Conversely, Herndon could provide depth and experience to teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Green Bay Packers and possibly the Miami Dolphins.
