The Titans have made it clear since they acquired the top pick in this year’s draft that it was for sale.
It appears the league has heard them, and is perhaps interested this time.
According to Peter King of TheMMQB.com, the Titans “will have a chance to make a deal,” after what is termed “significant interest in the pick.”
King puts the odds at 50-50 a deal is made.
The Browns are effectively the reason why there would be a market, as they’re so clearly a desperately looking for a quarterback that the No. 2 slot is easy to fill in most mock drafts. But the Titans don’t need a quarterback after taking Marcus Mariota last year, so they’re apparently willing to help you leapfrog the Browns to make sure you get the one you want, either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff or Paxton Lynch.
Much of it could depend on how far the Titans have to drop in the first round. They’ve spent plenty of time looking at Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil and Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey (and really, all the guys at the top).
But with a number of teams as desperate and as obvious as the Browns (Eagles owner Jeff Lurie hasn’t just been making trips because he likes Marriott points, and the 49ers and Rams are just a mess), the Titans may actually be able to swing a trade.
