NFL Draft: How far are you willing the Jaguars to move down?

New, comments

Many fans want the Jaguars to trade down in the 2014 NFL Draft and David Caldwell hasn't ruled it out, but how far down is too far down?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have many options with the No. 3 overall pick, including moving down in the first round and picking up more picks to add to their stockpile. Jaguars general manager David Caldwell has repeatedly noted they'd like to have 12-14 picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. The only way this can be accomplished is trading down or trading another player, the latter of which seems unlikely now.

While it's possible the Jaguars could slide down in the mid-rounds and pick up an extra pick or two like they did last season, the assumption is that the most likely place to move down is at the No. 3 overall pick, especially with some reports of the Atlanta Falcons being willing to move up, likely for a pass rusher.

This would slide the Jaguars down to the No. 6 overall pick, if they made a trade with the Falcons, and still in line for many of the same players they could have at the No. 3 overall pick but also nets them another mid-round pick.

But, is there a point at which a team like the Jaguars is moving down too far? Regardless of the compensation you would receive in return, how far is too far to where you just say no?

For me, I'd have to remain in the Top 10. I could deal with the Top 15 if I got a 2015 first round pick, but even though I'm rebuilding and would like extra picks, I still want a shot at a potential elite level player.
