No. 3 Jaguars certified building block: Andre Cisco, S

When you hear about the top safeties in the league, Kevin Byard, Derwin James, and Minkah Fitzpatrick will usually pop up. But it might be just a matter of time before Andre Cisco joins the conversation. A ballhawk at Syracuse, Cisco registered 13 interceptions and 14 passes defended in 24 college games. On the other hand, he missed a few games with a lower-body injury in 2019 and later missed most of the 2020 season with an ACL tear, which had a negative impact on his draft stock.

Having the dreaded injury red flag label, Cisco slid to Round 3 in 2021 but even though he managed to stay healthy throughout offseason activities, he began the regular season on the bench. He would eventually get the starting nod and quickly put on display his affinity for making plays.

Even though Cisco spent most of his rookie season on the sidelines, the new regime recognized his potential and named him the starter for the Week 1 starter last year. He made the most of the change, registering 73 total tackles, 10 passes defended, and three interceptions in 15 games.

On top of that, the Queen, New York native posted a solid 67.1 Pro Football Focus overall grade. Heading into year 3, he's low-key getting tons of recognition. Gordon McGuinness of PFF dubbed him a potential breakout candidate while teammates and coaches think he's poised for a banner year.

Having said that, Cisco isn't the only member of the Jaguars' secondary who is set to turn heads next season...
