While we continue to speculate on what the Jacksonville Jaguars could do at the No. 7 overall pick in the draft, there is one team who can completely shape the face of the Top 10 in the 2012 NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns hold the No. 4 overall pick in the draft, and who they're going to pick is anyone's guess. Many tend to think the Browns will select Alabama running back Trent Richardson, as the Browns lost Peyton Hillis in free agency and have a void at the running back position.

Some tend to think it's possible the Browns could take Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon, as the Browns need to add offensive playmakers. There's also the possibility that the Browns decide to try and get their franchise quarterback in Ryan Tannehill with the No. 4, which could greatly effect the draft. If Richardson is available to the Buccaneers with the No. 5 overall pick, many believe they will sprint to the podium with his name on the card. This would leave the St. Louis Rams with a difficult choice, needing both corner and wide receiver, but many feel the Rams will opt for Justin Blackmon.

The Jaguars lucked out in the 2009 NFL Draft when Eugene Monroe fell into their lap at the No. 8 overall pick and it's possible someone like Morris Claiborne could slide the same way, depending on what the Browns decide to do.

The belief right now is the Jaguars are going to try to move out of the No. 7 overall pick, even if they have to take less than market value to do so. Personally, I think it would be wise for the Jaguars to drop back even if they get a little less than "market value", but if Claiborne is still on the board, do you sit there and draft him or still move down hoping to get more with a premier player on the board?
