Getting into draft mode, I spent this afternoon monitoring the live mock draft all NFL ESPN Bloggers participated in. There were trades to be had and the Jaguars had an interesting trade and 1st round draft pick:

4. Browns-Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
5. Buccaneers-Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

6. Rams-Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St.
7. Eagles-Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi St. (Jaguars trade 7th pick and 176th pick for 15th, 88th, and 153rd)
8. Dolphins-Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
9. Panthers-Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
10. Jets-Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina (Bills trade 10th pick for 16th, 77th, 154th, and 187th)
11. Chiefs-David Decastro
12. Patriots-Mark Barron, S, Alabama (Seahawks trade 12th pick and 106th pick for 27th and 31st)
13. Cardinals-Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
14. Cowboys-Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
15. Jaguars-Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
16. Bills-Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
17. Bengals-Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
18. Chargers-Dont'a Hightower, OLB, Alabama
19. Bears-Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois
20. Titans-Nick Perry, DE, USC
21. Bengals-Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia
22. Browns-Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
23. Lions-Dre Kirpatrick, CB, Alabama
24. Steelers-Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
25. Broncos-Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
26. Texans-Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin
27. Seahawks-Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse
28. Packers-Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise St
29. Ravens-Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
30. 49ers-Janoris Jenkins, CB, Northern Alabama
31. Seahawks-Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
32. Bills-Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech (Giants trade 32nd pick for 41st, 105th, and 124th)

Paul Kuharsky's analysis of his pick for the Jaguars: I didn't get a great haul in the trade. But the Jaguars could consider Gilmore at No. 7 and get him at 15 while picking up a third-rounder and swapping a sixth-rounder for a fifth-rounder. Corner is not the biggest need after the acquisition of Aaron Ross, but no defensive end or receiver screams to be take at No. 7 or 15.
