We’re just two weeks away from the NFL Draft and the big trade people were expecting happened Thursday morning. The Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans agreed to a blockbuster trade to swap their first round picks. Here are the details of the trade courtesy of the Titans
Here’s now how I see the draft shaking out following the big trade…
|1. Los Angeles Rams|
|QB Carson Wentz, North Dakota State
Los Angeles shocked the world with the trade and they’re bringing a franchise quarterback with that pick.
|2. Cleveland Browns|
|QB Jared Goff, Cal
Despite the move that the Rams made, the Browns still get their potential franchise QB.
|3. San Diego Chargers|
|CB/S Jalen Ramsey, Florida State
Chargers look to fill the void left by Eric Weddle’s departure.
|4. Dallas Cowboys|
|DE/LB Joey Bosa, Ohio State University
The Dallas defense could use the pass rush that Bosa brings.
|5. Jacksonville Jaguars|
|LB Myles Jack, UCLA
Gus Bradley adds a versatile weapon to his defense.
|6. Baltimore Ravens|
|DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon
The Ravens continue to rebuild their defense for the present and future
|7. San Francisco 49ers|
|OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss
San Francisco gets the best player available and a steal at 7.
|8. Philadelphia Eagles|
|RB Ezekiel Elliot, Ohio State University
No QB to take here so Philadelphia looks to surround Bradford with weapons.
|9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers|
|CB Vernon Hargreaves, Florida
Tampa Bay could use an upgrade to their secondary.
|10. New York Giants|
|DE Shaw Lawson, Clemson
The Giants defense could use a pass rusher on defense.
|11. Chicago Bears|
|LB Darron Lee, Ohio State University
John Fox looks to upgrade the defensive side of the ball.
|12. New Orleans Saints|
|DT A’Shawn Robinson, Alabama
The Saints front seven is a mess, Robinson can help fix that.
|13. Miami Dolphins|
|OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
They’ve given Tannehill a lot of money, now they have to keep him protected.
|14. Oakland Raiders|
|OT Jake Conklin, Michigan State
Oakland could also go defense but they could look to protect Derek Carr.
|15. Tennessee Titans|
|OT Taylor Decker, Ohio State University
Tennessee moves down and still gets a great offensive tackle to protect Mariota.
|16. Detroit Lions|
|WR Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss
Detroit tries to fill the void left by Calvin Johnson’s retirement
|17. Atlanta Falcons|
|DE Kevin Dodd, Clemson
Dan Quinn tabs Dodd and Beasley as the ex-Tigers, now Falcons pass rushing duo.
|18. Indianapolis Colts|
|OT Jason Springs, Indiana
Indy reaches for an offensive lineman but they need to protect the franchise Andrew Luck.
|19. Buffalo Bills|
|LB Reggie Ragland, Alabama
Buffalo has no impact in the middle of the defense, this changes it.
|20. New York Jets|
|CB Mackenzie Alexander, Clemson
Jets find a new corner to go opposite Darrelle Revis.
|21. Washington Redskins|
|CB William Jackson III, Houston
Washington needs some secondary help.
|22. Houston Texans|
|DT Sheldon Rankins, Louisville
Houston’s defensive line gets stronger.
|23. Minnesota Vikings|

Pittsburgh goes with another Buckeye for their defense as they continue to get younger.
|26. Seattle Seahawks|
|DT Jarran Reed, Alabama
Seattle gets a steal to add to an already elite defense.
|27. Green Bay Packers|
|DT Robert Nkemdiche
Green Bay gambles on the troubled yet talented defender.
|28. Kansas City Chiefs|
|DE Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky
After striking gold with troubled CB Marcus Peters in 2015, Kansas City doubles down with the troubled pass rusher.
|29. Arizona Cardinals|
|OG Cody Whitehair, Kansas State
Arizona looks to keep Carson Palmer as their QB for a few more years.
|30. Carolina Panthers|
|OL Germain Ifedi, Texas A&M
Another Aggie lineman makes his way into the first round.
|31. Denver Broncos|

|WR Michael Thomas, Ohio State University
Cleveland looks to pair Jared Goff with a big target.
