All throughout the draft process, we’ve heard that the Jaguars wanted to trade down out of the seventh pick.

The draft is just hours away and now the wind is shifting the other direction. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Twitter and on television that the Jaguars are one of a handful of teams actively looking to move up in the first round. Per Schefter, their target is Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon.

There’s a good chance that Blackmon will be off the board before the Jaguars get on the clock and the team would likely have to jump in front of the Rams to guarantee themselves a shot at drafting the wideout. The question is which team in front of them would want to trade down to seven and what it would cost for the Jaguars to take the trip up the board.

According to Schefter, the Jaguars are one of six teams looking to move up at the moment. The Bills (despite Buddy Nix’s denial earlier on Thursday), Eagles, Packers, Patriots and Chargers are the other teams on the list.

    Thank god this draft is nearly over. I am sick and tired of hearing who is going to do what.
    Everyone knows whats going to happen, and they probably won’t be right.

    Good, but they might not have to trade up at all. They do need a playmaker for Gabbert though.

    Kendall Wright and Michael Floyd. Two reasons to move back and get more picks.

    Jags, you need alot of help.

    i bet blackmon is praying that the jags dont draft him, with gabbert throwing the ball to him, he will be viewed as a potential bust, cause he wont put up good numbers

    If they do this will mark the 3rd year in a row w/o a 2nd round pick. Fire Gene if this happens.
