2013 NFL Draft: Teams interested in trading for 2nd pick, according to report

The Jaguars are set at left tackle in 2013 with Eugene Monroe, but other teams might want the 2nd pick so they can bolster the position.


We've speculated here on BCC that the Jaguars have been setting up smokescreens as a way to generate trade interest and that may have come to fruition as Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported on Wednesday that there is some interest in the second pick from teams looking to select a left tackle.

This comes shortly after many of the major names in NFL media switched their mock draft selections for the top pick from Luke Joeckel to Eric Fisher, as the Central Michigan offensive tackle is quickly becoming the favorite to be the top pick on Thursday night.

The most logical candidate teams that would be interested in a left tackle are the Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers. The Miami Dolphins are also very needy at left tackle, but are reportedly working on a trade to acquire Branden Albert from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Trading down is a tricky situation, as the Jaguars could move themselves out of position to select a player like Dion Jordan that is a difference-maker for the team. However, every trade has the right price to make it worth it and it's not out of the question that the Jaguars could move down to the fifth or seventh pick and still be able to land Jordan or another player they covet.
