NFL Draft 2013: Jaguars don't rule out trading down

USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars currently hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and could go multiple directions with the pick. The most likely pick for the Jaguars at the spot is a defensive lineman, but quarterback or defensive back is always a possibility as well.

"There are going to be players that emerge as a legit number two candidate, and there will be more than one,'' Caldwell told Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union.

Another possibility is the team could trade down and get more draft picks, which Jaguars general manager David Caldwell has not ruled out.

"There will be some trade partners that may want to come up, but you have to have a trade partner in order to trade down," Caldwell told Stellino. "So as we get closer to April, we'll find out who's going to be a viable trade partner and who are the players that we're really keying in on."

The hardest part about trading down, as Caldwell mentions, is having a player available that is coveted by other teams. In the 2013 NFL Draft, there doesn't seem to be many of those players at the top of the draft, which will make it tough to trade down unless a team just falls in love with a player and has to have them. This draft is kind of "flat" as far as top end talent goes, so trading down likely won't be too easy.
