A Great Trade Back Option

It has been speculated that the Jaguars may try to trade back in the first round of next month's draft. Find out which defensive back the Jaguars have shown interest in who could be their pick if they can jockey back in this draft.

Jaguars general manager Gene Smith will explore any and all trading opportunities when next month's draft rolls around.

"We will look at every opportunity if we feel it can help the team," Smith told JagNation.

If the Jaguars can indeed move back in next month's draft, a player of interest could be Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson. The 5'10", 194 lb. Wilson was a leader on defense for his undefeated Broncos and he served as a shut-down corner, intercepting eight passes over his final two seasons.

What's even more amazing is that in a pass-happy WAC Conference, Kyle Wilson did his best Darrelle Revis impersonation as a senior.

"I only allowed one touchdown pass all year," Wilson said.

Is the level of competition he played against in college a concern? Wilson doesn't think so.

"I can definitely say the level of competition is equal. I've seen guys at the Senior Bowl and they're the same as the guys on my team. I was very well-prepared for the Senior Bowl."

Wilson also believes that his 5'10", 194 lb. frame is plenty big enough to get the job done on the next level.

"I don't think I lack size. I try to be extra physical. I try to put my hands on receivers. I continue to use my technique to my advantage."

Wilson could also bring the added dimension of returning punts to the Jaguars, something that the team is desperate to improve.

"I feel like I can return with the best of them," Wilson said. "Every time I get the ball I think I can score."

Although Wilson was barely recruited out of high school, and wasn't a household name until just a month or two ago, he maintains supreme confidence.

"My biggest strength is my playmaking ability. I cover, I hit, I can do it all."

Will this particular do-it-all playmaker be wearing a teal hat on draft day? Wilson likely won't be a candidate for the Jaguars with their tenth-overall pick, but if they can move back in the first round, Wilson could be a perfect fit.
