The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, the franchise's first-round pick in 2009, to the Ravens. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Jacksonville would receive "multiple third-day draft picks" in exchange for Monroe -- Day 3 of the draft includes Rounds 4 for 7. acksonville used their 2013 first-round pick (No. 2 overall) on Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel. He has started all four games this season on the right side of the line, with Monroe holding down the left. Presumably, Joeckel now will slide over to Blaine Gabbert’s blindside, taking up the position he played last season for the Aggies.
