Detroit Lions have not called Jaguars about No. 1 overall pick

On Thursday, Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes spoke to the media and though he said he is open to all trade possibilities, it sure did sound like he was content with staying at No. 2 rather than trading up to No. 1.

From Detroit Free Press:

“If we have that conviction on that player and it’s like, ‘Look, it just makes sense,’ we feel like we need to go get that player, we’ll go get that player,” Holmes said. “That’s not always the case. Sometimes you don’t feel like you need (to). It’s not shunning down on that actual player. Sometimes it’s just like, ‘Hey, look, we feel pretty good where we’re at. We feel good about this cluster of players.'”

A day later, Jacksonville Jaguars GM Trent Baalke revealed that nobody has called him directly to trade for the No. 1 overall pick.

Baalke has the same belief as Holmes that there are a lot of players at the top of the draft who are graded similarly.

He added that the Jaguars are currently considering four players for the No. 1 pick.
