 Despite rumors the Jaguars might trade down to get more draft picks, GM David Caldwell says there were only a few inquiries.

The second and third rounds of the NFL draft will be held Friday night, with rounds four through seven on Saturday.

Joeckel started all 39 games of his college career at Texas A&M.
