Jacksonville Jaguars acquire OT Jonah Williams: 3 trade proposals
2. The Jacksonville Jaguars trade OL K'Lavon Chaisson for OT Jonah Williams
One of the biggest decisions the Jaguars must make this year involves outside linebacker Josh Allen, who is entering a contract year and has been a mainstay of their defense since they made him the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. However, Allen isn't the only former first-round pick whose future in Jacksonville is in question. Specifically, the team's brass also needs to decide what to do with K'Lavon Chaisson.
The Jags could opt to pick up the fifth-year option on Chaisson's rookie deal but if he isn't part of their long-term future, they should consider including him on a trade package for Jonah Williams. Although Chaisson has been underwhelming since Jacksonville made him the 20th overall pick in the 2020 draft, he could benefit from a change of scenery. The fact that he's played for three different coaches might have hindered his development and there's a chance he could, at last, find his footing in Cincy.
Of course, Chaisson alone might not be enough to land Williams. The Jags would probably need to send a draft pick too. Since Williams himself comes with his own set of flaws, a fifth or fourth round pick could get a deal done.
The Jaguars picked up an additional fourth-round selection last year from Tampa, so they have two and could also easily change one. The upside of acquiring Williams is that the Jags would no longer need to use one of their early-round pick on an offensive tackle and can instead address other areas of need.
