No. 1 Jaguars player who hurt his stock vs. the Cowboys: K'Lavon Chaisson, OLB

Safety Andrew Wingard recently told fans that they shouldn't fret about the pass rush but the Jaguars aren't taking any chances and are currently looking for potential reinforcements. Just recently, they hosted defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Although he left Jacksonville without a deal, it's telling that the Jags are thinking about bringing in outside help.

And that's the thing, the Jags wouldn't need to sign someone if outside linebacker K'Lavon Chaisson could consistently create pressure up front. A first-round pick in 2020, Chaisson has failed to live up to expectations, having registered just three sacks over the last three years. Now, sacks aren't the only way to measure an edge rusher's success but Chaisson has been underwhelming when he's on the football field, which is why his playing time has progressively decreased since his rookie season.

The coaching staff is still high on Chaisson though. Defensive line Brentson Buckner says he feels Chaisson just needs time to hit his stride while defensive coordinator Mike Caldwell says he has the talent and the tools to become a playmaker.

Unfortunately, Chaisson didn't anything against the Cowboys to validate his coaches' trust. He had a prime chance to show he's made progress but he was overshadow by rookie Yasir Abdullah, who could pass him on the depth chart if he fails to impress against the Lions.

Chaisson may very well become the player the Jaguars thought they were getting when they made him the 20th overall pick in 2020 but he's not don't enough to make you think he will.
