No. 2 Jacksonville Jaguars player set to finish the 2023 season strong: Tyson Campbell, CB
Tyson Campbell had a pretty good sophomore campaign, giving up just 9.6 yards per completion and posting the fifth-best Pro Football Focus score among cornerbacks. On top of that, he was tied for the most interceptions on the team with three and his 15 passes defensed ranked second, just behind Darious Williams' 16. This led several NFL analysts to frequently discuss Campbell as a top-10 cornerback throughout most of the offseason.
However, the former Georgia Bulldog has taken a bit of a backseat to fellow cornerback Darious Williams, who's having a banner year, and even made PFF's Second-Team All-Pro. While Campbell hasn't been nearly as good as he was last year, he wasn't bad either.
In six games, he surrendered a 61.8 percent completion rate and allowed 11.0 yards per reception. These weren't necessarily great numbers but they weren't dreadful either. The fact that he suffered a hamstring injury in Week 6 and has missed the last two contests hasn't helped matters.
The good news is that Campbell could be close to returning. Even after he got hurt, he never missed practice. Doug Pederson just said the third-year corner has been doing fine, so he could play against the Niners, just like Walker Little.
With enough time to get fully healthy and work on his fundamentals, Campbell should rebound when he's back in the fold.
