2. Tyson Campbell, cornerback

Like Zay Jones, Tyson Campbell was an integral piece of the Jaguars team that made the playoffs and won the AFC South in 2022. That year, Campbell registered 15 passes defensed and three interceptions. On top of that, he gave up less than 10.0 yards per reception. His amazing play earned him lots of recognition across the league. However, a hamstring injury hampered his performance significantly last season.

Campbell should have no trouble bouncing back, but that's not the only hurdlle he'll have to clear. Besides getting healthier, he'll need to make the transition to Ryan Nielsen's press-heavy scheme, which may be tough when you take into account that he's better suited to play zone.

If the Jaguars go cornerback early in the draft, which is a possibility, they may decide to shop Campbell around. He's set to be a free agent in 2024, and if the team's brass doesn't think he'll be a fit in Nielsen's defense, it may be the best course of action. They won't probably get a high pick, though. Any potential suitors will most likely see Campbell as a reclamation project.

1. Cam Robinson, left tackle

Left tackle Cam Robinson has been the subject of trade speculation since the end of 2023. That's mostly because the Jags have a logjam at left tackle and Robinson is set to have a massive cap hit of over $20 million next season. However, releasing (or trading) him would free up $17 million. Given the demand at the position, Jacksonville may be able to find a trade partner during the draft.

They won't probably get a second-round pick but a third-rounder would be a nice return. Also, releasing Robinson would pave the way for either Walker Little or Anton Harrison at left tackle. Another benefit of moving on from Robinson could pave the way for the Jaguars to extend Trevor Lawrence.

After signing Josh Allen to a long-term deal, they have $30 million in space. Add the $17 million they would get if they released Robinson, and they would have more than enough to give Lawrence a long-term deal. That makes the prospect of trading Robinson too good to pass up.
