3. Bryce Hall, CB, NY Jets

The Jets have the luxury of depth at a number of positions, but perhaps no position on the roster is stronger than cornerback. Not only do the Jets have likely the best starting duo in the NFL in Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed, but they have impressive depth behind them.

Brandin Echols and Bryce Hall each have starting experience, although both enter the season as backups for the second consecutive year. Hall, in particular, could be trade fodder.

A fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Hall started 24 games over the first two seasons of his career, including all 17 games in 2021 as the team's de facto No. 1 cornerback.

While Hall was clearly not a true top corner, he definitely played at a starting-caliber level. The additions of Gardner and Reed relegated him to a backup role in 2022, and his lack of special teams experience rendered him a healthy scratch for much of the year.

Hall played just 15 defensive snaps last season — a far cry from the team-leading 1,169 snaps he had played the year prior. He just doesn't have a role in a healthy Jets cornerback room.

The Jets might prefer to keep Hall around as excellent depth, but given that he's entering the final year of his rookie contract, it might be worth exploring what the team could get for him. After all, will he even be on the roster in 2024?

Hall could legitimately push for a starting job on a handful of NFL rosters. Don't be shocked if he's traded before the start of the season.
