Golden Analysis: Titans’ Draft Strategy

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson executed a massive deal last week that sent the first overall pick, a fourth round pick, and a sixth round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for the 15th overall pick, two second-round picks, and a third round pick. The Titans also received a 2017 first round pick and a 2017 third round pick.

While it’ll take a few years to determine which team benefitted from the trade the most, the Titans are in a great position to shore up their roster. Having drafted quarterback Marcus Mariota last year, the Titans can build their roster around their signal caller of the future.

Having six picks in the top 76 spots typically bodes well for a franchise as long as they select players who fit their system and can develop into contributors. While the Titans could use some of their extra picks to move back up, having a high quantity of early picks gives the team more opportunities to add future starters.
