Titans GM Jon Robinson has fans coming up to him constantly to ask about the team’s No. 1 overall pick, as TitansOnline.com’s Jim Wyatt writes. It’s not just the fans that are asking, however. Opposing GMs have called Robinson to ask about acquiring the top pick as well.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations here and there. I think it is really more kind of exploratory at this point,’’ he said. “As we get a little bit closer, a little bit more through the process with the combine and interviews and pro days, I expect there will be a few more exploratory calls, and there may not be. We’ll see.”
With several weeks to go between now and the draft, we expect there to be many more calls on the Titans’ No. 1 selection. One has to imagine that it will take a lot to pry that top pick away from Robinson & Co., but it’s not necessarily impossible given the number of holes the Titans have to fill.
As of this writing, most draft pundits are predicting that the Titans will select Mississippi offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil with the No.1 pick. In theory, however, the Titans could be enticed by the opportunity to trade down and land a tackle like Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley if given the right package of picks and NFL-ready talent. Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa could also be in the mix for the No. 1 selection.
