4. Jacksonville Jaguars player who could be cut after the draft: Tevaughn Campbell

Cornerback remains one of the Jaguars' biggest needs ahead of the 2023 draft but they aren't completely devoid of talent at the position. Besides having a reliable starting duo in Tyson Campbell and Darious Williams, they have a dependable backup in Tre Herndon, who signed a one-year deal in free agency to return to Jacksonville. Similarly, Chris Claybrooks, a seventh-round pick in 2020, has carved a niche on special teams and can start a few games if needed.

Moreover, the Jags drafted Gregory Junior and Montaric Brown in back-to-back rounds last year. While both of them are still developing, they could end up becoming solid depth pieces or steady contributors on special teams. Either way, the team's brass seems to be high on both of them, which doesn't bode well for Tevaughn Campbell, who might have a hard time making the team in 2023.

The Jaguars poached Campbell from the Las Vegas Raiders' practice squad last year and brought him back on a one-year deal earlier in the offseason. However, he might have a steep hill to climb to crack the roster.

After going undrafted in 2019, Campbell signed with the New York Jets but was waived later that year. He then joined the Los Angeles, where he spent two seasons before he was released before the start of the 2022 season. He then landed on the Raiders before he was claimed by the Jags.

Although Campbell could provide depth, releasing him would create $840,000 in cap space with just $100,000 in dead money. Given how tight the Jaguars' budget is, it wouldn't be shocking to see him part ways with him.
