The 2016 NFL Draft is finally here! Follow along with all the Jaguars news and rumors leading up to the No. 5 overall pick in our live blog.

The 2016 NFL Draft is finally here! The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the No. 5 overall pick but there's talk (as there is every year) of general manager Dave Caldwell trading down, according to ESPN.

Let's be clear: These talks happen every year, but there's a little more probability of it happening this year. Why? Because there will likely be an elite offensive tackle available when the Jaguars pick at No. 5 overall and because there's a wealth of defenders in the top-15 of this class. The Jaguars could trade down a few spots and still pick up a Day 1 starter like Shaq Lawson or Leonard Floyd.

Will it happen? Probably not. I think Dave Caldwell and Gus Bradley will take a playmaker like Myles Jack or Jalen Ramsey before they move down to get an extra pick.
