NFL: Oakland Raiders at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly looking to deal superstar defensive end Khalil Mack for two (two!) first round draft picks and at least seven teams are interested to get in on the action, according to Jason La Canfora.

Before we begin, please say a prayer that the Indianapolis Colts don’t get to him.

Okay, done? Good.

With such a steep asking price, should the Jacksonville Jaguars be interested? After all, their defense is stacked with a variety of different pass rushers — from Yannick Ngakoue on the edge and Taven Bryan, Calais Campbell, and Malik Jackson all providing more than ample interior rush ability. And the salary cap consequences could be pretty serious. All one has to do is look at Aaron Donald signing a $135 million contract to know that Mack will get something similar, if not a little lower, in the near future.

On the other side, uh, I don’t know... let’s get nuts, right? The Jaguars have a short window and why not break the bank on an elite pass rusher averaging over 10 sacks a season in his first four seasons?

So, what do you think? Should the Jaguars get crazy and mortgage away at least two future first round picks for Mack? Or is the team much better off continuing with the already strong defense they’ve built?

Let us know in the comments below!
