Can the Jags really afford to do it?

I was thinking about the (unlikely in my opinion) possibility one of those premier players in the draft manages to fall to 7 because Tannehill finds his way into the earl picks. The question that kept on coming back to me when I thought about it was "Is it really that terrible if the Jags pass over these players and trade down with a team moving up for one of these guys?"

Obviously, as Adam pointed out 2 days ago, you want to maximize value for the pick, and so if you value the player more than the picks/players received, you don't want to make the deal. However, my thought process is that a team looking to move up for these premier guys will value some of these players more than the Jaguars, if only because the Jaguars do not really have desperate needs at any of the positions that these premier guys play.

Here are the scenarios that came to mind as plausible if a premier guy drops.

A: Claiborne falls - Cincy offers up one of its 1st (I am thinking 17 and not 21) their 2nd, a late pick like a 5th and a future 2nd

B: Kalil falls - Detroit offers up its 1st and 2nd and a future 1st

C: T-Rich falls - NYJ offers up its 1st and 2nd and a future 2nd

Call me nuts but in every case I think I take the offer and pass over the premier guys.
