    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- An update with things getting under way in the 2009 NFL draft.</p> <p>I'm at Titans headquarters, but at the start, the Jaguars are the AFC South team involved in the intrigue.</p> <p>Anything can happen during anybody's 10 minutes. We could see Seattle, now on the clock at No. 4, put things to rest by taking <a href="http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?draftyear=2009&id=24676">Mark Sanchez</a>.</p> <p>But the longer we go without a trade, the better the chances are that the Jaguars' No. 8 spot is the one a quarterback-thirsty club like the Redskins or Jets wants to acquire in order to secure him.</p> <p>The best-case scenario for Jacksonville may be that its able to move back to accumulate more picks to address multiple needs.</p> <p>If the Jags manage to move back to 13 in a deal with Washington, then the AFC South will be the second-to-last division to have its first pick -- with only the NFC South still waiting for New Orleans at No. 14.</p> <p>If the Jags make a deal with the Jets that takes them back to No. 17, every division will have made one pick before Houston kicks things off for the AFC South at No. 15.</p>
