No. 2 trade the Jaguars can make before the 2023 season: Jourdan Lewis, CB

The Jaguars replenished their cornerback room in the offseason and they didn't have to spend big to do so. Instead of going after a big-name free agent or using a first or second-round selection on the position, they waited until Day 3 of the draft to take Antonio Johnson, Erick Hallet II, and Christian Braswell. On top of that, they signed Kabel Hayes once the draft was over.

Tyson Campbell and Darious Williams are the Jaguars' top two cornerbacks ahead of the season but the rest of the depth chart is still taking shape. Tre Herndon is set to man the slot in 2023 by virtue of being the veteran in the room. The rest of the depth chart is a work in progress but the rookies, along with sophomores Gregory Junior and Montaric Brown, give the team's brass lots of options to round out the unit.

Having said that, if the Jaguars aren't thrilled with how any of the youngsters are coming along, they could then bring in veteran help. That's where Jourdan Lewis could come in.

A third-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2017, Lewis has mostly lined up in the slot throughout his NFL career but he could also play outside if needed. He's appeared in 83 games with 43 snaps and has registered eight interceptions and 66 passes defensed over the last six years.

The issue with Lewis is that he suffered a Lisfranc injury last year and 2022 fifth-round pick DaRon Bland shined during his absence. Lewis is working his way back from the injury but if he's a full-go, the Cowboys will probably roll with Bland and make Lewis available. If that happens, the Jaguars should get on the phone with Dallas.
