Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell told ESPN Thursday that the team is happy to keep the second overall selection in the draft.
"We would be open to both [staying put or trading down]," he said. "There's a player there at two that we're going to draft and that's going to make us better, we feel good about that, and we have a consensus here from our personnel staff and our coaching staff. It would have to be the right situation for us to move back and bypass that player."
The Jaguars' happiness doesn't depend on what the Kansas City Chiefs do at No. 1, since Jacksonville is assured of getting one of two players they really like, Caldwell said.
Jacksonville has needs everywhere after going 2-14 in 2012. Caldwell suggested that a solid offer for the No. 2 pick would be a surprise.
"Obviously, it has to be worth your while to drop back," he told ESPN. "If there's somebody who you feel can come in and contribute right away and be a cornerstone of this franchise for eight or 10 years, what is really the value if a team is just going to give you a fifth- or fourth-round pick to bypass a guy that you really feel good about, have conviction about? I don't see that happening."
