The Jacksonville Jaguars are preparing to pick first overall in the NFL Draft. According to general manager Trent Baalke, that is where they will be even if they would have been interested in trading down.

Baalke said Friday that the Jaguars have not received any calls from teams looking to move up to the No. 1 spot, and the team is preparing to make the pick.

This might not be a great year to have the pick if a team is looking to trade down. A lot of huge pre-draft deals involve teams looking to move up to land a potential franchise quarterback, but this year’s QB class is not viewed as an exceptionally strong one.

Supposedly, the Jaguars are already leaning in one direction as they prepare to make the selection. There appears to be little doubt at this point that they’re not going to move down even if they want to.
