It’s doubtful that this team would trade up from No. 11 into the top 10. There’s a better chance of trading back into Round 1. Much like last year with Hunter, that’s the type of thing where if management saw a player who was available at the start of Round 2 who they had valued much higher, then maybe they trade up into the early second round. Sleep it over and then decide.

What’s much more likely to happen: a trade-down. If the Titans could find another organization within the 12-25 range who’s desperate enough to trade up for a player, they could recover a mid-round pick from last season. Even if Tennessee moves down, they’ll have good players to choose from. They just have to find the right players for their new system.
