2016 NFL draft trade: Titans send No. 1 overall pick to Rams

New, comments

The Rams are on the clock to presumably pick their franchise quarterback and the Jaguars have the highest pick in the AFC South.

The Tennessee Titans have finalized a trade with the Los Angeles Rams to exchange their No. 1 overall pick for several picks this year and next, leaving the Jacksonville Jaguars with the highest pick in the AFC South for the 2016 NFL Draft.

So, how does this work out for both teams?

The Titans get...

1st round pick (No. 15 overall)
2nd round pick (No. 43 overall)
2nd round pick (No. 45 overall)
3rd round pick (No. 76 overall)
1st round pick in 2017
3rd round pick in 2017

The Rams get...

1st round pick (No. 1 overall)
4th round pick (No. 113 overall)
6th round pick (No. 177 overall)

Whew. On paper, that's a win for the Titans, who already have their franchise quarterback in Marcus Mariota and needed more picks to build around him.

It all points towards Los Angeles going after their guy and no position is worth that much except for quarterback (unless you're Mike Ditka) but now the question remains: Who is their guy? Is it Carson Wentz or Jared Goff?
