With less than a week until the NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars are making it known of wanting to trade out of the 10th spot.

Not only will this pick demand a high salary, but the front office is looking to acquire an extra few picks in the second round.

Though it makes us believe Jacksonville doesn't want to focus on a top prospect, don't be fooled.

The Jaguars have rumored to be interested in Jimmy Clausen, CJ Spiller, Jason Pierre-Paul, and possibly Dez Bryant (post-Marshall trade).

Common theme? They are all talented individuals, but their draft stock is so uncertain we won't have an idea until the minute they are drafted.

Knowing this, maybe the Jaguars realize they could trade down, earn extra picks, and still draft one of the prospects, and save money at the same time.

The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots seem to be leading candidates if they want to trade up, especially with the interest in many prospects, along with the amount of picks they have.

We could also have a wildcard, such as the Steelers, who could make a play for cornerback Joe Haden if there.

But deep down, this could be the plan to finally select quarterback Tim Tebow.

My guess is Tebow's stock will be a result of him going somewhere between the Vikings at 30th overall, and the Patriots within the second round.

Tebow would be an instant ticket seller for a franchise looking to put people in the seats, and it may become reality soon enough.
