No. 4 player the Jaguars could trade by midseason: Shaquille Quarterman, LB

Just one year after linebacker was one of the Jaguars' biggest weakness, their front office has turned it into a strength ahead of the 2023 season. With the benefit of hindsight, they would have not moved on from 2019 third-round pick Quincy Williams, who just signed a multi-year deal with the New York Jets in free agency, back in 2021.

The good news is that even without Williams, the Jaguars have built a stout linebacker corps. Besides signing Foyesade Oluokun last year, they drafted Chad Muma and Devin Lloyd. Oluokun has become a veteran presence on and off the field while both Muma and Lloyd are set to make strides in 2023. However, the Jags weren't done bolstering the unit and they drafted Ventrell Miller this past April.

Although Miller is still recovering from a foot procedure he underwent last December, he should be able to contribute at some point of the 2023. If the former Florida Gator is a full-go, the team's brass could then consider trading fourth-year linebacker Shaquille Quarterman.

A fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, Quarterman has been a key contributor on special teams and has fared well when called upon. Last season, he got the spotlight for dislodging the football from running back Derrick Henry in the Jags' first matchup against the Tennessee Titans last season.

Quarterman could is a solid depth piece that could start for teams in need of linebacker help. Having fortified their linebacker group, the Jaguars can afford to trade Quarterman.
