According to ESPN’s John Clayton via Rotoworld.com, the Jacksonville Jaguars are “desperate” to trade the 7th overall pick and move down in the first round. They’re hoping the Kansas City Chiefs are willing to move up to draft Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Clayton did mention the trade is ”probably not gonna happen,” but Jaguars general manager Gene Smith will continue to hold out hope.
If Tannehill falls past the 4th pick, Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli may consider trading up.
