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.

1:09 PM: That's right -- a full 7-round mock draft served up nice and hot!
What is the ideal 7-round mock draft for the #Jaguars? (Hint: It includes a trade down.) https://t.co/7wQieaqY5w pic.twitter.com/OlxpQRnpYd— Big Cat Country (@BigCatCountry) April 28, 2016

Told last night #Jaguars decision makers LOVE Bosa. Had people in building/close to team try to sway towards other players. They held firm.— Eric Galko (@OptimumScouting) April 28, 2016
If Ramsey is there, he SHOULD be the guy. But, source said, even if he is, MAY still opt for Bosa. Jags known for having strong convictions.— Eric Galko (@OptimumScouting) April 28, 2016
9:06 AM: Neat.
