The Jacksonville Jaguars are heading into their second season with head coach Gus Bradley. After a long season of winning just four games, the Jaguars have been handed the number three overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Moving just one place from last season when they took offensive tackle Luke Joeckel with the second selection in 2013.
General manager David Caldwell told the media that the Jaguars are not set on the third pick. Meaning the team will look to trade if an offer is good enough or possibly want to trade up.
“I don’t think where we’re standing right now that we’re dead set on going in any one direction, whether it’s trading up, trading back, staying where we are and picking,” Caldwell said while attending Senior Bowl practices. “There’s going to be a lot of options there with the third pick.”
“We feel good about being there if we have to pick, just like we did last year [when they had the No. 2 pick], and we feel good if an opportunity presents itself to trade up or trade back, too.”
The Houston Texans have already made news about potentially trading the very first pick in the draft. If the Jaguars fall in love with a top prospect, this could be an opportunity that the Jaguars take. Although initial thoughts would be the Jaguars would trade down to collect as many draft picks as they can.
