Trent Baalke: Jaguars “always open for business” with first overall pick

Mike Florio and Peter King discuss the changes of the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine, including the presence of fans and amplified TV coverage.

The Jaguars have the first overall pick in the draft for the second consecutive year, but General Manager Trent Baalke said they’re not committed to using it themselves.

Jacksonville knew they were going to take quarterback Trevor Lawrence the moment they secured the top pick in 2021. This year’s draft board doesn’t have a clear-cut No.1 and Baalke was asked about the possibility of trading the pick when he met with the media at the Scouting Combine on Tuesday.

Baalke added that the Jags are “very comfortable with taking the pick as well” and the lack of that surefire No. 1 pick will likely limit the number of teams willing to pay a premium to make the leap into that slot.
