Jaguars shopping former top-ten pick CJ Henderson?

CJ Henderson

The Jacksonville Jaguars may be surprisingly willing to trade a player they invested a lot of draft capital in little more than a year ago.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, multiple teams believe the Jaguars are willing to trade cornerback C.J. Henderson, the ninth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Henderson and the team do not appear to have any issues with each other, but the Jaguars are content with their other cornerbacks and may be willing to move him.

It’s not often that a team appears willing to trade a top-ten pick after just one year, especially when there don’t appear to be any issues at play. Henderson was unable to make a huge impact as a rookie after suffering an injury eight games into the year which required offseason surgery. Jacksonville also drafted cornerback Tyson Campbell 33rd overall, and brought back both Sidney Jones and Tre Herndon from last year.

Regardless of how justified it is, it’s not a great look to trade a former high draft pick so quickly, even if it was a previous regime that made the selection. Maybe it fits with Urban Meyer’s win-now mentality, and they’re not interested in waiting to develop Henderson.
