Would Joe Douglas at least make a call to JAX and inquire about #1?


Recommended Posts

Not saying that JD would offer anything crazy, but do you think he at least checks the box of making a call and surveying if JAX has any interest in moving off the pick?

If JAX said they really weren't interested unless they were blown away would JD try to do that?

I don't think I'd trade the pick under any circumstances if I'm JAX but if they said, "Okay Joe.... well, Becton, Quinnen Williams, your #2 overall, your other 1st in 2021, and a 1st in 2022.....you can have the #1" I just couldn't see JD doing it.

Was curious about this too- like Jax would never trade the pick but foes JD check that box anyway?

You almost HAVE TO make the call, right?  Even if you know what the answer would be it would be negligence if JD didn't at least make the call as the team with the #2 pick to see what was up.  Could you imagine if we got to Draft day and Atlanta all-of-a-sudden jumped from #4 to #1 by trading Grady Jarrett and four 1st round picks?  The Jets sitting there like, "we didn't think they'd move the pick so we didn't even try."

He will likely be in regular communication with Cincy about #1. Nothing will happen unless they decide that Fields or Wilson are better, or if the draft pick haul is so huge and one of them close enough to TL that they decide its better value. Super doubtful. Plus it might cost something like 3 #1s

I guarantee he will call and I also guarantee nothing will come of it.

It would be negligence for Jax to trade down without ever checking in with the Jets too.  They could then turn around and trade down a second time if they wanted to accumulate a ton of draft picks.

The thing is, the beauty of getting the number 1 pick for us would have been taking Trevor and then using our plethora of picks and FA money to build a good team around him quickly. 

If we have to trade assets to move up for Trevor, the plan loses a lot of it's appeal. 

Also, Jacksonville isn't giving up TL, lol

God could plunder locusts onto Jacksonville and they be wouldn’t budge an inch.

Certainly not your good looks, hopefully they like your humor.

I've been told my looks are also "humorous" so I'm, like, a double threat.

Jax isn't trading. But if they would it would start with our 4 1s. 2 this year and both next. 

exactly. and im not giving them up. not even 3 1s

we need to get over the fact that Jax has Trevor and there not giving him up. if we did trade those 4 1s for Trevor then JD should be fired cause if he wanted Trevor so bad he should have forced Gase to start the backups. start the 3rd string QB.

The only way Jax doesn’t draft TL is if there is truth to the Urban Meyer theory being floated where he is their next coach and wants Fields. In that case, their only option is to take Fields at 1 or trade with us for 2. In that case, the price to trade would not be so high, because they have to take a qb this year and if they don’t at 1 and leave us at 2 we will take their guy. 
 

All highly improbable, but in the only real scenario they do trade, it is to us for less than market value.

This is the only way it happens but the probability is still very close to zero. If JAX prefers Fields, they just take him at 1. GMs don’t get cute and risk losing the QB they want to squeeze out more draft capital. This is the same reason JD isn’t trading down and is taking a QB at #2.

Agreed.
