NFL Draft 2016: Rams acquire No. 1 pick from Titans

The 2016 NFL Draft is just two weeks away and there were rumblings that there could be big moves made in the top five. That happened Thursday morning when the Los Angeles Rams traded with the Tennessee Titans for the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

The news came down Thursday morning and the Titans receive a large number of picks in exchange for their top pick. The Titans receive the Rams’ first-round pick, two second round picks, a third round pick this year and the team’s first round and third round pick in 2017.


The @RamsNFL are now picking first after a huge swap with the @Titans:

This trade leaves the Rams with the least amount of picks in the draft with only five overall. They pick once in the first round and twice in the fourth and sixth rounds.

This now leaves the Rams in a good position to get their star quarterback, whether that be Jared Goff or Carson Wentz.
