Why do I care?
I’ll do a deeper dive on this as the offseason goes on, but basically, this feels like a draft where the Titans could get a defensive lineman or an EDGE of the same quality at pick 22 or 40. That position is just really deep with fringe first round talent.
So, maybe this is a year where Titans fans get what they have been clamoring for: a trade down.
To be in a prime position for a trade down you need two things: a team willing to trade and a reason why your pick is the best value to get their guy.
The second part is crucial and luckily there is plenty of reason to believe that the Titans are going to be the last stop for a team looking to trade up. Just two spots below the Titans are the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Tony Pauline was the first to report that the Steelers are infatuated with Harris, and Art Rooney II has reportedly been insistent on getting the running game better.
With the Steelers poised to be the first team to pull the trigger on a running back in the draft, teams that reportedly have interest in Harris like the Dolphins or teams that desperately need a running back like the Atlanta Falcons under Arthur Smith or the Buffalo Bills should be sniffing around at what it might cost to make a move up.
