It’s no secret that the quarterbacks available in the NFL Draft this year aren’t rated very highly. All you have to do is look at a mock draft and see all the players who aren’t quarterbacks going in the top 10 to figure that out. What hasn’t been talked about nearly as much is that there are plenty of good players available — particularly at offensive tackle and edge rushers — but there is no clear-cut No. 1 option.
And teams are letting you know they feel the same way. The Jacksonville Jaguars have not made a secret that they’re open to trading the No. 1 pick for the right deal, and now the Detroit Lions are letting us know that the No. 2 pick could be had too.

It makes sense. While I have disagreements with other evaluators about our No. 1 player at a position, we all agree there isn’t much of a drop-off between any of the top options. If you’re the Jaguars or Lions, and you have a lot of holes to fill, trading down and acquiring more picks is the right move if you aren’t in love with anybody. You just have to hope you find somebody else desperate enough to move up.
The fact both teams have been open to the availability of their picks suggests that team doesn’t exist yet.
OK, let’s make some money.
