The 2016 NFL Draft is quickly approaching and as always it will likely yield plenty of quick changes, which could make or break teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars who hope to become competitors in year four of their rebuild.
The Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles have already caused quite a stir in the 2016 NFL Draft, moving up to the first and second overall selections, respectively.
There’s no doubt that the three day draft event will yield plenty of other exciting changes. The NFL draft is like a serious television drama every year as the entire nation holds their breath with each pick as analysts give us the latest rumors from behind the scenes.
For the Jacksonville Jaguars – a team hoping to make the leap in 2016 – landing the best players is critical overall success and delaying yet another rebuild from possibly occurring. In honor of that, this post dreams up a scenario in which fourth-year general manager Dave Caldwell lays it all out to get two players who can make an immediate difference and moves back into the first round.
This would be uncharacteristic of Caldwell, who has contentedly drafted with his predetermined first round picks through three drafts. But it isn’t unheard of. Teams like the Minnesota Vikings routinely move back into to grab a player and enable a fifth year option to add on.
In honor of this, we’ll look at who the Jags could take fifth overall and with an added trade.
