The Tennessee Titans are one of three teams to own two first-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, but that might not be the case for much longer.
The Titans own the No. 5 pick, which they acquired last year from the Los Angeles Rams in the Jared Goff trade, as well as their own pick at No. 18. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday that Tennessee has offers for the fifth overall pick.
The Titans finished tied for first place in the AFC South in 2016, but they missed out on the playoffs because of a tiebreaker. They have a talented young team, and the ability to improve at multiple positions by stockpiling picks from trading the No. 5 pick certainly is enticing.
One of Tennessee’s most glaring needs is at wide receiver, and it might be able to take the first one at No. 18. Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis said Wednesday that Titans star Marcus Mariota is his favorite quarterback, and he’d be a great fit for Tennessee’s offense.
The Titans could add a bunch of picks by trading No. 5 and still fill a huge need at No. 18. That’s a situation they should at least consider.
