Charley Casserly just released his final mock draft and if the NFL Network analyst has his way, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns will be making a blockbuster trade that puts No. 4 overall pick Mitch Trubisky on the Browns, No. 12 overall pick Deshaun Watson on the Jaguars, and some very high draft picks in Tom Coughlin’s back pocket as a result of the Jaguars swapping first round picks with the Browns.
While I love the concept, I just don’t see it playing out like this.
Only twice in the last 22 years has a team traded down and still selected a quarterback — the Carolina Panthers with Kerry Collins and the Buffalo Bills with E.J. Manuel. And while Collins managed some success in the Panthers’ early years, Manuel has never lived up to his first round billing. (Thanks, @jasonmatheny.)
So if the Browns or Jaguars think they have their guy, go get him. Or else someone will.
What do you think? Could a blockbuster trade like this happen for the Jaguars and Browns on draft night?
