Somebody did it. They offered the Jaguars the pair of first round draft picks they were looking for:
It’s happening: Former Jaguars’ CB Jalen Ramsey is being traded to the LA Rams for two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, and a fourth-round pick in 2021, source tells ESPN.

Gut reaction? Two firsts and a fourth is a pretty steep price to pay. That does not feel like a Howie Roseman type of deal and I’d be shocked if he ever made an offer like that. But the truth is that your first round pick in 2020 or 2021 ain’t gonna be as good as Jalen Ramsey, right? Sometimes you just gotta #DoTheDeal. You gotta give up big assets to get big players.
Denver’s Chris Harris looks like the next best target out there if the Eagles make their typical midseason move (Golden Tate last year, Jay Ajayi in 2017).
