Jaguars Draft Rumors: Justin Blackmon A Trade Up Target?

New, comments

As we get closer and closer to the 2012 NFL Draft, the rumors and misinformation begins to start flying. There have been multiple rumors about teams that are wanting to trade up or trade down and one of those teams is the Jacksonville Jaguars. The rumor also involves the Jaguars looking to trade up, not down, in the NFL Draft.

Schefter mentioned on ESPN that the potential trade up target for the Jaguars is Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon. The pick they would trade up too was not discussed, but I'd imagine it would have to be before the St. Louis Rams pick at No. 6 overall.

Personally, I think it's the Vikings trying to create a market for their pick that doesn't exist. I think the Jaguars would draft Blackmon at No. 7, but I have a really hard time seeing them move up for him.
