The Tennessee Titans have secured the No 1 overall pick for the 2016 NFL Draft. However, they would be willing to trade the pick if a tempting offer comes along, according to their new GM Jon Robinson.
Robinson, who took charge of the team on Monday, said that his team will look at any offers for the draft pick. “I can’t say with certainty that we are going to move the pick or that we’re not going to move the pick,” Robinson said during his introductory press conference at the Saint Thomas Sports Park.
“We will look at any and all offers that come this way and make a decision that’s best for the football team. If that means sticking and picking, we’ll stick and pick. If that means moving around and working the draft with trades, then that’s what we’ll do,” added Robinson.
According to the latest NFL Mock Draft, the Titans will draft Joey Bosa out of Ohio State University. Will any team step up and show interest in Bosa?
The Titans finished the recently concluded regular season with a 3-13 record. Despite their paltry record, head coach Mike Mularkey has been reinstated as head coach despite finishing 2-7 as interim coach.
Robinson, a native of Union City, Tennessee, got the job after Titans interviewed six candidates for the post of General Manager. Robinson brings with him 12 years of experience with the New England Patriots. He spent two years as Director of Player Personnel with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before returning to his home state.
During Ruston Webster’s four-year stint as GM, the Titans registered a 18-46 record, including an unacceptable 5-27 record over the last two seasons. A number of NFL executives reckon Robinson’s hire would help the team return to relevancy. Could the Titans trade the No 1 draft pick for a superstar? It’s possible.
