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.
