Jaguars projected defense after the 2024 NFL Draft Part II

Cornerbacks (6): Tyson Campbell, Ronald Darby, Darnell Savage, Jarrian Jones, Deantre Prince, Montaric Brown

A pair of newcomers will join the cornerback room. Jarrian Jonnes and Daentre Prince should have no trouble making the roster. Both rookies will take on reserve roles early on but they have the tools to vie for starting jobs next year. For the time being, Tyson Campell and Ronald Darby remain the starters barring any changes.

Darrell Savage mostly lined up at safety during his five-year stint with the Green Bay Packers but he'll man the slot in Jacksonville.

Safeties (5): Andre Cisco, Antonio Johnson, Daniel Thomas, Erick Hallet II, Andrew Wingard

Head coach Doug Pederson has provided clarity to Antonio Johnson's projected role in 2024. The former Texas A&M Aggie mainly lined up in the slot last year but he was listed as a safety. At the owners meeting, Pederson said that Johnson will replace Rayshawn Jenkins next to Andre Cisco in the defensive backfield.

Andrew Wingard is back, and so is special-teams ace Daniel Thomas. Both can come off the bench at any given time but are better suited for backup roles. On a side note, sophomore Erick Hallett II should have a favorable chance of making the roster.

Special Teams (3): Logan Cooke, Ross Matiscik, and Cam Little

The Jacksonville special teams underwent a significant change in the draft. In Round 6, the team's brass selected Cam Little out of Arkansas. Already, they released Joey Slye and Riley Patterson could be next. Even though Patterson was the Jaguars' kicker in 2022, he's been on shaky ground since his return early in the offseason.

Little is the favorite to win the kicker job in training camp, but if he falters, Patterson would be an adequate alternative.
