Vikings Trade Opens Possible Jaguars Deal For Justin Blackmon

The Minnesota Vikings made the first big trade of the 2012 NFL Draft and, unsurprisingly, it seems that move just opened up the possibility of more moves down the line. Not all of them are even sure to include the Vikings, apparently.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted shortly after the move when down that the move could allow the Jacksonville Jaguars to move up to grab Justin Blackmon from the Oklahoma St. Cowboys.

Blackmon was once thought to be a Vikings target, but it remains to be seen if they'd be interested in moving back a few more spots to allow Jacksonville to grab him with the fourth overall pick.
