The Jacksonville Jaguars are faced with making the right move in the coming NFL Draft. There is plenty of drama concerning which card that the Jaguars play at pick number four.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have prepared for the upcoming NFL Draft since dismissing former head coach Gus Bradley. The success of the 2016 draft has added to the suspense and drama for the next eight picks. Jacksonville has a card up their sleeve that might shock everyone on Thursday.
Do you remember the Ricky Williams trade in 1999? Former New Orleans Saints coach Mike Ditka traded every pick he had in order to move up in the draft. Ricky Williams was the number five overall selection.
Eli Manning told San Diego that he did not want to play there. San Diego drafted him as number one overall in 2004. As a result, a trade was made sending Manning to the New York Giants.
Lets hope that Jacksonville makes the right move this upcoming weekend. The Jaguars have to draft according to match team needs. Due to all the roster offseason moves, there is plenty of drama concerning the first Jaguar selection.
A Wild Card or Two That Jacksonville Might Play On Draft Weekend
First, the Jaguars could choose to stay at number four and select Leonard Fournette. Most mock drafts have predicted Jacksonville to draft Fournette or a defensive player. Either scenario is a safe choice and upgrades the talent at those positions.
Because of all the rumors, Blake Bortles might be sent to Arizona for more draft picks. Seems like a good move by Jacksonville, however that might mean that the Jaguars take a quarterback at number four. Is there a free agent quarterback that could be signed after the draft?
The biggest of all wild cards to be played is for the Jaguars to move down from number four. Jacksonville could get Jabrill Peppers and further solidify the secondary. If defense wins championships, Peppers is a must have player to lock down the Everbank.
Finally, Joe Mixon and Amelia Molitor have released a statement concerning the pending lawsuit against Mixon. According to Ryan Aber of NewsOK:
"“I am happy we were able to bring the lawsuit to an end,” Molitor said in the statement. “Joe and I were able to meet privately, without any attorneys, and talk about our experience since that night. … I greatly appreciate his apology and I think the feelings he expressed were sincere."
Since Mixon has shown remorse and has made amends with Molitor, the Jaguars should fully consider drafting him at four. Probably will not happen at four, how about at 35?
