According to sources, LionsFans.com has learned that the Detroit Lions are heavily considering a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars in effort to snag additional picks.
The trade would send the Lions' sixth overall pick to Jacksonville in exchange for the Jags' 9th overall selection, plus two later round selections (39th and 70th overall). Or, according to the source, the Lions could grab Jacksonville's 39th overall selection in addition to star safety Donovin Darius.
The rumor has not been confirmed by either side, but the deal is said to be contingent on the availability of Texas' wide receiver Roy Williams. The Jaguars would select Williams with the sixth overall pick to compliment young quarterback Byron Leftwich.
The Lions, meanwhile, would nab Oregon State running back Steven Jackson with their ninth overall pick, and likely an outside linebacker with their additional second round selection.
In a follow-up on another rumor, although the Lions and the Pittsburgh Steelers have had discussions in regards to the sixth overall pick, no players have been discussed or offered by Pittsburgh. The Steelers, according to our source, were only attempting to feel out the Lions.
