GM Smith says the Jags want to move down in the draft

The Jags official site reports that the team is looking to move down in the April draft:

The Jaguars need to improve their pass-rush, which produced a league-low, franchise-low 14 sacks last season and the good news is that this year’s draft class is loaded with pass-rush prospects. “I think it’s a good group. You’ve got some 4-3 ends and some 3-4 outside linebackers, plus, you have some interior defensive linemen,” GM Gene Smith said. The Jaguars will have either the 10th or 11th overall pick, depending on a coin flip at the combine with the Denver Broncos. Defensive End’s Derrick Morgan of Georgia and Jason Pierre-Paul of South Florida would figure to be early candidates for the Jaguars but Smith confirmed to that he’d like to trade down and acquire an extra pick or picks, and the depth of the pass-rush crop would suggest that Smith could trade down and still get his man.
