The Tennessee Titans have traded the No. 1 pick in the draft to the Los Angeles Rams in a blockbuster trade.
Tennessee sent the top selection along with its fourth- (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) picks this year to the Rams in exchange for Los Angeles' first-round pick (No. 15), two second-round selections (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76) in 2016. The Titans also will get the Rams' first- and third-round picks in 2017.
With the trade, the Rams now have the ability to draft the quarterback of their choice and make a splash as they settle into Los Angeles after leaving St. Louis this year. Carson Wentz of North Dakota State and Jared Goff of California are considered the top quarterback prospects.
As of Thursday, the Rams are leaning toward selecting Goff No. 1 overall but will use the time before they pick on April 28 to also consider Wentz.
The Titans now own nine selections in the 2016 draft, including six of the top 76 picks.
This marks the seventh trade involving the No. 1 overall pick since 1990 and the first since 2004, when the San Diego Chargers selected Eli Manning and traded his rights to the New York Giants.
