The Bare Minimum

The Jaguars current asking price is at least a first-round draft pick. But, it’s assumed that one of the best young cornerbacks in the game will demand much more than just one pick. Fitzpatrick was bought for a first-round pick so gauging Ramsey’s worth becomes a bit easier.

After all, for reference, you can look at what the Dolphins were able to secure for Laremy Tunsel. Adding in Kenny Stills and a few late-round selections to the deal, the Dolphins secured three draft picks, including two first-rounders and a second-rounder in the coming drafts.

Take out Kenny Stills and the other picks, and you may have something similar to this. However, it’s unknown what the Saints are willing to give up, but they’ll be one of many teams that are determined to get their hands on a top-tier defense threat.

For New Orleans, it’s all about urgency.

Do they believe that Ramsey is worthy of this haul? Ramsey, as Dolphins’ Fitzpatrick was dealt just days after demanding a trade, may not have long on the trading block. The bare minimum is this, and it’s a viable option for both teams.

It should be the first of many options that Jacksonville has though.
