Titans, Rams trade ranked as one of the most important of the decade
By Will Lomas
How did the Titans do?
While the Rams only ended up with one player still on the roster after all of those picks were moved, Derrick Henry, Corey Davis, and Jonnu Smith are all on the Tennessee Titans right now.
Jack Conklin was also a huge part of this roster and you could say that he is still helping the team because he is going to net them a 3rd round compensatory pick in 2021 which could be huge.
So overall the Tennessee Titans have a piece that they have built their offense around in Derrick Henry and over the time that Henry has been the starter (or at least a heavy contributor), the Titans have gone 27-21 in the regular season with a 3 playoff wins.
You also have Corey Davis who (if you ignore where he was picked) has been a very solid player for the Titans, especially when given any sort of passing volume at all.
Top it all off with Jonnu Smith who looked exceptional last year and who may actually turn into a Pro Bowl season before it is all said and done.
Without perfect foresight, I don’t know how you could have had a better result than this in the first wave of picks and they netted a solid batch of players in 2017 as well. This class helped shape the identity and roster that turned the Titans into a team that has been a contender for the playoffs year in and year out.
