Rams trade up to the No. 1 pick, targeting QB Carson Wentz
The Tennessee Titans have traded the No. 1 pick in the draft to the Los Angeles Rams in a blockbuster trade.
Tennessee will send 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.
The Titans now own nine selections in the 2016 draft, including six of the top 76 picks in the draft.
Sam Farmar reports that the Rams plan to draft QB Carson Wentz with the #1 overall pick.
It's a steep price to pay, but will be worth it if Wentz turns out to be the franchise quarterback that the Rams obviously believe he is. With the quarterback position already set, the Titans will have plenty of firepower to fill roster holes in the draft.
