Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jacksonville Jaguars are interested in moving up for wide receiver Justin Blackmon. That could make things interesting for the St. Louis Rams, who have Blackmon pretty highly regarded in their evaluations.
UPDATE: Now Clayton is reporting the Rams are interested in trading up for Blackmon.
One trade has enabled Jacksonville to now try to trade up for OSU WR Justin Blackmon. Jags pushing for deal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 26, 2012
Of course, swapping picks would be a push in terms of players available since the Rams have the sixth and Jacksonville has the seventh. It would net them an extra pick which always comes in handy.
Blackmon was one of four receivers the Rams had a last-minute private workout with last weekend. The others were Kendall Wright, Michael Floyd and AJ Jenkins. Other than Jenkins, those are all first-round picks. Only Floyd is viewed as a top-10 pick, but teams have vastly different evaluations
