The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team coming into the 2023 NFL Draft with big-time expectations. They had a very good year last year and are now looking to take that next step.

If they have a good draft that brings in some talent at positions of need, they might be able to be even better this year.

The AFC is loaded with good teams led by good quarterbacks so the Jaguars need to be ready. They need to be smart over the rest of this week.

At the draft, they might consider making a big trade that can help them in the long run. These are three surprise trades that they might consider:

The Jacksonville Jaguars can move up a few slots for different players.

The Jacksonville Jaguars might really like someone that is supposed to go right at the end of the top ten. Maybe it is a receiver, an offensive lineman, or a defensive pass rusher.

All of those things would be awesome for the Jaguars to add but they would need to move up in order to get the best of the best. The Philadelphia Eagles currently hold the tenth overall pick that was given to them in a deal with the New Orleans Saints.

The defending NFC champions may want to move back if they can get more picks in return which is exactly what this trade suggests. It should be a surprise to nobody if the Jaguars take a risk and move up this year. They are good enough to think about things like that this year.

If moving up can get this team where they need to be in 2023, they should think about it. There are some really good players coming out.
