2012 NFL Draft: Jaguars Could Have Plenty Of Trade Down Chances

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made it known they will entertain the idea of trading out of the No. 7 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft at the end of April. The easiest way for the Jaguars to do so would be if Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill were to slide to their position, but it's looking ever more unlikely that could happen. There are some who seem to think that Tannehill could be drafted as high as fourth overall or fall out of the Top 10 all together. I tend to think it will be somewhere in between there, but even if he's gone before the Jaguars pick, there are still plenty of players teams might see worth trading up for.

This doesn't necessarily mean the players being picked at No. 7 are worth the No. 7 pick and the Jaguars should stand pat, but these players could hold increasing value to other teams. Take a player like Melvin Ingram or Courtney Upshaw for example. Those players are both likely fits in a 3-4 defense and a team like the New York Jets, who pick No. 16 overall, could feel the need to come up and get that guy they're missing on their defense. Later on in some separate posts, I'll explore the different possible trade partners the Jaguars could have for the No. 7 overall pick and what players those teams could be looking at.
