There have recently been reports that the Jaguars have received phone calls for the seventh overall pick with director of player personnel, Terry McDonough, saying the team has fielded more calls than usual for the pick. According to ESPN's John Clayton, this is exactly the strategy the Jaguars have in mind.

Clayton cites the Chiefs trading up for Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill as the scenario the Jaguars are hoping for. Obviously, the likelihood of there being demand for the seventh selection will depend on the talent on the board with Tannehill as one of those possibilities. A trade could also be possible if players like Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon or Mississippi State DT Fletcher Cox are on the board.
