We've had a lot of talk about the Jacksonville Jaguars trying to trade out of the No. 7 overall selection and the team's best bet to do so is if Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill is on the board. If Tannehill is off the board however, there are still a few players that teams could attempt to move up for. One of those team's could be the New York Jets, according to Sports Illustrated's Tony Pauline.
his may come as no surprise but the chatter is getting louder from league insiders that the primary strategy for the New York Jets in round one would be trading up for Melvin Ingram of South Carolina. Who are potential trade partners? The Jacksonville Jaguars for starters, though we hear there will be competition for that selection if it comes into play.
Now, it is lying season but this trade would make a lot of sense for both sides. Hilariously enough, it's also the exact scenario I had playing out in my latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft, with the Jaguars picking up an extra second-round pick to move down.
