The Los Angeles Rams get the top pick in the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft with the Tennessee Titans which is being regarded as one of the “Blockbuster Trades” of all time.
The Rams as well as the Cleveland Browns have a “major” hole at the quarter-back position, notes USA Today, and both are desperate to fill in the gap once the “draft commences” on April 28.
On Thursday, the Titans announced that the Rams have acquired the “No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft” via the mentioned trade.
The team also announced that in “exchange for the top pick” they will receive the “Rams’ original first-round pick at 15th overall, two second-rounders (43rd and 45th overall) and a third-round selection (76th).”
The Titans are now left with “six of the top 76 picks” in the draft.
The Browns might got for North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz and Cal’s Jared Goff, suggest reports.
The Titans will see this as an opportunity to induct several top players.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson posted, “Being able to acquire six players in the top 76 this year, along with next year when you factor that into it — I am assuming five in the top three rounds — that is 11 players that we can add to this football team that should not only increase our depth, but give us good quality players at all those positions,’’ Titans general manager Jon Robinson said.
“In the end we thought it was a decision that was best for this football team. It made sense for us to do it, and that’s why we moved on it. We talked to several teams about the pick. There was interest in the pick, and in the end we thought this was the option that made the most sense for us…We think we can really bolster this roster with the picks that we now have.”
The Forbes lists the “full first round NFL Mock Draft” with just two weeks left for the draft.
