No. 2 player the Jaguars could trade after Jaguars training camp: Daniel Thomas, S

The Jaguars entered the 2023 draft with nine picks and after several trades, they came out with 13 players. They didn't originally want to hold onto as many selections but they had no choice after failing to find a trade partner.

Although some of these draftees could have a hard time making the 53-man roster, especially those taken on Day 3, some of them have already started to make noise and should have a favorable chance of getting the nod.

In particular, Erick Hallet II (Round 6), and Antonio Johnson (Round 5) — as previously noted — have shown out in training camp. Although they have lined up in the slot, they're both listed as safety and the two of them could end up making the 53-man roster.

Currently, Rayshawn Jenkins, Andre Cisco and Andrew Wingard are expected to claim to top three spots on the depth chart. Hallet and Johnson could take the fourth and fifth spot, which could leave Daniel Thomas on the outside looking on cutdown day.

A fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft, Thomas flashed as a rookie before an arm injury cut his season short. But in spite of showing potential, he began the following season behind Jenkins, Cisco, and Andrew Wingard. Thomas ended up starting a couple of games near the end of the year but it wasn't anything to write home about.

Last year, the former Auburn Tiger appeared in 15 games but was mostly relegated to special teams. Given how stacked the Jaguars' safety room currently looks, general manager Trent Baalke might feel inclined to move Thomas when the front office starts trimming down the roster.
