Tyson Campbell must elevate himself to the elite CB conversation
Another player who will be closely watched during training camp is cornerback Tyson Campbell. The young defensive back showed promise in his rookie season and has the potential to make a significant impact in the Jaguars' secondary.
With his speed, agility, and coverage skills, Campbell can shut down opposing receivers and make crucial plays. As he continues to develop his technique and gain experience, Campbell could emerge as a critical contributor to the Jaguars' defense.
Campbell is emerging as a front-line cover player, but he still lacks bigger plays – and more consistency – are needed. The former Georgia Bulldog was outstanding last season, allowing just 9.9 yards per reception and giving up a 58.5 percent completion rate when targeted, but well will have to see if he is capable of repeating that production when anticipated and game planned for.
Will Jaguars WR Zay Jones, get enough targets to be effective?
Wide receiver Zay Jones is a player who may fly under the radar but has the potential to make a significant impact during training camp. With his precise route running, reliable hands, and ability to create separation, Jones gives quarterback Trevor Lawrence a dynamic weapon on offense.
While he may not have the same level of recognition as some of his teammates, Jones has proven to be a reliable and consistent player throughout his career. Keep an eye on Jones as he looks to make a name for himself and establish a strong connection with Lawrence during training camp.
Concerns to watch with Jobes in camp is how he will fit in the crowded receivers' room this season as No.3. He had 121 targets last year with 82 receptions. He will only see 80-90 targets this year, with Ridley and Kirk starting. Pay attention to his progress in improving his reception percentage in camp; that will be his key to the season.
