The Jacksonville Jaguars are calling teams about trading up from the No. 17 pick in Thursday's NFL draft, a source told Dianna Russini of The Athletic.

Clubs taking the Jaguars' calls believe they're targeting a specific pass-catcher, Russini adds.

Calvin Ridley, Jacksonville's leading receiver in 2023, signed with the division-rival Tennessee Titans this offseason. The Jaguars added former Buffalo Bills wideout Gabe Davis in free agency, but the team still lacks a top-end player at the position.

The 2024 draft class is loaded with wide receiver talent, especially at the top. Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr., LSU's Malik Nabers, and Washington's Rome Odunze are the consensus top wideouts in the class.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers is also projected to go high in the draft and is considered one of the best players in the class.

Other wide receivers to watch out for in the first round are Texas' Xavier Worthy, LSU's Brian Thomas Jr., and South Carolina's Xavier Legette.

Jacksonville has eight picks in the 2024 draft, including three in the top 100.
