2012 NFL Draft: Jaguars Will Entertain Trading 7th Pick

New, comments

There has been recent speculation on Big Cat Country that the best opportunity for the Jaguars to trade down would be to trade with a team interested in Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Today at Everbank Field Gene Smith spoke to reporters and confirmed that the scenario is a very real possibility.

According to John Oehser of Jaguars.com, Smith continued to speak about the possibilities of a trade down. "We would entertain that. That would be a consideration."

The most likely scenario for a team to trade up with Tannehill in mind would be if the Dolphins are unable to acquire a starting quarterback in free agency like Matt Flynn or Peyton Manning. That, in effect, would leave Miami desperate for a quarterback in the draft and force quarterback hungry teams (like the Browns, perhaps) to trade with the Jaguars, one spot ahead of the Dolphins, to select Tannehill.
