The Rams and Titans just pulled off a blockbuster deal that has changed the landscape of the NFL draft.
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.
This trade makes sense for both teams for a couple reasons.
For the Titans, they knew they didn't want to pick Tunsil at #1. They may have thought picking a safety at #1 was a reach as well. At 15th overall, the Titans can move down to a spot where they can still add a key contributor to what they want to do on the offensive side of the ball. Look for this team to nab the best WR off the board to give Mariota a legit young option. They also get the Rams #1 pick next year, so they can add two very good players in next years draft.
For the Rams, this deal was the right move for one reason: they have no quarterback. They have a franchise running back in Todd Gurley, and need to get someone who can make plays down the field. With this move, they secure grabbing the quarterback of their desire.

Who do you think won this deal?

Who do you think the Rams will now take with the #1 overall pick?

Depends on how well the QB they draft does
I think it could turn out to be a win-win for both sides
