4. Jaguars player staring at this 1st Pro Bowl selection: Tyson Campbell, CB

Opinions on Jalen Ramsey are divided among Jaguars fans. What isn't up to debate is that it took the team's brass more than they expected to find an actual replacement. They tried several times but it wasn't until they drafted Tyson Campbell that they found a true lockdown corner.

A second-round pick in the 2021 draft, Campbell is a good example that players can get off to a rocky start but eventually put it all together. Early in his rookie season, the former Georgia Bulldog struggled to play the ball. Compounding the issue is that he lined up in the slot at the beginning of the rookie year but once he replaced C.J. Henderson in the boundaries, he fared much better.

Campbell finished his rookie campaign with a team-high two interceptions. He picked up where he left off last year and became one of the best young cornerbacks in the league. His 82.3 Pro Football Focus grade was the seventh-best at the position and he's been getting lots of praise since the end of the 2022 season.

Now, Campbell has a chance to solidify his place as a top 5 cornerback in the league. "I think each year I play in this league, the game definitely slows down for me", Campbell told team reporter John Oehsher.

Making the Pro Bowl in 2023 won't be easy though. Campbell will have to compete with Sauce Gardner, Patrick Surtain Jr., and Ramsey for a berth. Then again, he's proven he's got the talent to seize a spot if he keeps trending up.
