The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock. However, a new report suggests the NFL franchise is trying to trade out of the No. 1 overall pick.
According to a report, the Jaguars want to move back in the 2022 NFL Draft. The only issue is the top pick isn't garnering much interest this year.
"Per a league source, the Jaguars are still hoping that they can find a path out of the top pick. However, they continue to find no takers," said Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Most years, the No. 1 pick is highly coveted. This year, though, the draft isn't as front-loaded as it typically is. Teams are much more excited about picks 15-50 than one through 14.
It's no surprise the Jaguars can't find a trade partner for the No. 1 pick.
"You know it’s a weak draft when nobody wants #1"
"I was talking about this the other day unless there is a bonafide #1 QB I'd always trade the #1 pick. Better odds taking two players in 1st round than putting everything in your basket for one pick."
"This is so unsurprising lmfao. There’s not a generational guy at a premium position, therefore no one wants to give up the extra capital when they can get the same caliber player at 4-5."
"Yes. Trent Baalke indicated last Friday they've made it known they're open for business and the phone has not rang."
Who knows? Maybe in five years we'll look back and realize this draft class was stacked.
Right now though, it's looking like teams aren't too enthused about this year's top prospects.
