The Jacksonville Jaguars surprised everyone with their Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Since then, they are who we thought they were. The Jaguars have lost four games straight, and it's clear that this team is looking toward the future.

Jacksonville has already been selling off assets over the past year, and they could continue to do so ahead of the NFL Trade Deadline. With that in mind, here are three Jaguars who could be traded soon.

1. Keelan Cole, WR

Keelan Cole has boosted his overall value with these first five weeks, totaling 21 catches for 219 yards and three touchdowns. While the Jaguars aren't a talented team overall, their wide receiver corps has to be their most talented group. They can afford to move at least one of these receivers, and it would make sense for Cole to be traded to a WR-needy contender, since he's a free agent this upcoming offseason.

2. Chris Conley, WR

The other wide receiver that makes sense to move is Chris Conley. He has been less impressive than Cole, catching just 13 passes for 190 yards this season, but he has a longer track record of success in the NFL. Last season, Conley totaled 775 yards and five touchdowns. He looks out of place in this offense this season, though, so it would be wise to move him now, as they are unlikely to re-sign him in the offseason.

3. D.J. Hayden, CB

On the wrong side of 30, D.J. Hayden is also set to become a free agent in the offseason. It's possible a contender would be interested in Hayden for depth, as secondaries have been getting crushed across the league. Still, Hayden has simply been bad this season, being graded as the worst of the bunch on Jacksonville, per Pro Football Focus. He has allowed an 83.3 percent completion rate and a 134.0 passer rating against him this season.
