Live Blog:

6:19 PM: A lot of people think Manziel is being used as a smokescreen, but FOX Sports Jay Glazer doesn't seem to rule him out for the Jaguars at No. 3, but also says he could fall in the 20's.

5:07 PM: Now the rumors are coming hot and heavy. The Jaguars apparently covet Mike Evans now. They covet everyone, I guess.

4:00 PM: Oh God now they're just playing with our emotions.

2:45 PM: ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that, according to his sources, the Houston Texans are locked into their selection for the No. 1 overall pick and that they won't be accepting any trades.

12:43 PM: Not a whole lot of rumors on the Jaguars front, which I find both humorous and weird. There's a ton of talk about teams moving up in the draft to picks one or two and four and five, but there's been essentially zero talk about teams moving to the No. 3 pick, which makes me think that it's the actual sweet spot to spark a move up.

10:00 AM: The most interesting rumors surrounding the Jaguars began with some believing they would pick Johnny Manziel with the No. 3 overall pick. Then came some rumors from Don Banks of Sports Illustrated that Manziel didn't want to play for Jacksonville because it was a small market. Then came Manziel earlier in the day at an NFL Play:60 event bringing up Jacksonville unsolicited as a potential landing spot multiple times. RUMORS!

At this point in the day I don't really have any inside information. Most of my sources clammed up about a week ago, which is standard operating procedure around the NFL Draft. At this point I still feel comfortable saying the pick will be either Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins or a move down in the Top 10. That can change, though.
