According to Jason Cole of the National Football Post, NFL teams have already begun to discuss potential draft trades during Senior Bowl week.
Cole mentions that “several teams” have shown interest in trading down in the hope of obtaining addition second and third-round picks due to the fact that this is considered to be one of the deepest draft pools in several years.
“You’re going to see a lot of players who would normally be second-round picks end up in the third round. Same goes for the mid- to late-first round picks ending up in the second round,” a team executive told Cole.
Another executive specifically mentioned that the Jaguars could be a team to watch given that they are clearly in rebuilding mode right now and could use some additional selections to fill out their roster.
“If you’re in a rebuilding mode, I think it would be really tempting to move back to pick up a couple of extra picks,” said the executive.
However, the Jaguars have an obvious need at quarterback, which makes it seem unlikely that they would trade out of the No. 3 spot to address other positions in the later rounds.
Cole mentions that the Rams are another team looking to move down from No. 2 overall, which is something they’ve said publicly in recent weeks.
