2012 NFL Draft: Jaguars Could Have Trouble Trading Back From No. 7

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a pretty good pick at No. 7, but they might opt to trade back in the first round and gain some more picks, opting for quantity over quality. But that might not be the easiest thing to do according to Peter King at Sports Illustrated.

One of the things you're going to hear in the run-up to Thursday night's first round of the draft is how badly the Jacksonville Jaguars want to trade down from No. 7, which is true. And last night, one of the stories hatching around the league was that Seattle would move from 12 to seven -- ahead of Miami at eight -- to pick Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. I think it's unlikely, and not just because the Seahawks just bought a quarterback, Matt Flynn, in free agency, last month.

It might be difficult to see a way for the Jaguars to trade back right now, but when the draft is underway ad some prospect falls to No. 7 that a different team is totally in love with, things might change awfully fast for the Jaguars.
