5. CB Joshua Williams

This would be a surprise after how well Williams fared in his rookie season after being selected in the fourth round. He had a pivotal interception to help seal the AFC Championship game and plays with the length and physicality that Veach covets in the secondary.

Despite that, he's seen his snap count decrease over the last several weeks while Jaylen Watson is getting more run. After playing in 59% of the snaps in Week 1, Williams saw just 13% in Week 7 after playing in 19% in Week 6.

Williams is a legitimately good player and would be a boost for any secondary. We've seen Veach pull off surprises with at the deadline before, so Williams' decreasing playing time may be an indication he's on his way out.

With seven deflected passes his rookie year and a variety of game-changing plays, Williams will certainly have a market if Veach wants to move on.
