2012 Jacksonville Jaguars 1st Round Possibilities

This is my opinion on who the Jaguars might take with their 7th pick in the 1st round. I will include draft needs, possible trades, notes on each pick/ trade/ draft need, grades on each pick, and possible reaches.

Team Needs- WR/ LG/ RT/ LDE/ CB

WR- This is a no-brainer. The Jaguars have the worst WR core in the NFL, which is the main reason Gabbert struggled in his rookie season.

LG- I would give Rackley another year to see if he has starter abilities. If he doesn't, the Jaguars can either draft a franchise LG, or move Britton to LG, which would mean that we would need to draft a RT.

RT- Eben Britton has shown flashes of his potential, when he's healthy. He needs to prove that he can stay healthy, or the Jaguars will be forced to, possibly, draft a new franchise RT.

LDE- This will probably be the most talked about position that the Jaguars need to address. Harvey was a complete bust for us, and we are still looking for a franchise LDE. There are a couple of players that have the potential to be just that, but they will have to prove themselves if they want to be drafted with the Jaguars 7th pick.

CB- This isn't much of a need now that Ross was signed, but it is still an issue for 1reason. When Mathis retires, the Jaguars will need to do something about the starting CB position. Will it be Ross, or someone the Jaguars draft.

Trades- Dolphins/ Cowboys/ Jets/ Bears/ Steelers

Dolphins- The Dolphins might be 1 pick behind the Jaguars, but that doesn't mean that they will still get Tannehill/ Floyd. If they trade up with the Jaguars, they will have an oppertunity to draft Tannehill/ Floyd, but the only question is, "Who do they draft?"

Cowboys- The Cowboys might want to trade up to nab a franchise CB like Kirkpatrick. That would be a huge thing for us because we would get compensation for the trade, and with the board slimming down, we can see if the player we wanted will still be there.

Jets- By what I've heard, the Jets are really interested in Ingram. Coinsidence, we have an interest in Ingram, so trading up with the Jaguars would ensure the pick for them.

Bears- If the Bears are really desperate for a franchise LT, trading with the Jaguars would make the most sense because Reiff/ Martin/ Adams would still be on the board at 7. They might even look at Kuechly with the pick.

Steelers- This is a surprise trade because it is unlikely to happen unless the Steelers want Poe. With the Panthers sitting at 9, the Steelers would have to trade with either the Jaguars/ Dolphins if they want to ensure the pick.
