The Rams will give the Titans their first-round pick at No. 15 along with two second-round selections and their third round pick in the draft starting April 28. The Titans also will receive the Rams' first- and third-round round picks in the 2017 draft.

General manager Jon Robinson said he tried to use the pick as currency to build a team that went 5-27 the past two seasons.

“Being able to acquire six picks in the top 76 this year and additional picks next year, not only helps our depth but gives us ammunition to move in this year’s draft and next," Robinson said. "I know we now have the number 15 pick, but I would say it doesn’t knock us out of any player except one." 

Tennessee now has six of this draft's first 76 picks.
