Tennessee Titans open to trading the number one pick

They may have had the number two overall pick quarterback Marcus Mariota under centre this year, but that didn't prevent the Tennessee Titans from being statistically the worst team in the NFL.

The Titans finished with a 3-13 record in the regular season and even though Mariota showed a lot of promise, there is a lot of room for improvement.

Trading away their opportunity?

Due to their disastrous campaign, the Titans have earned the number one pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but that may not be the case come draft day.

This year is the first time that the Titans have had a top 10 pick since drafting quarterback Jake Locker back in 2011 with the eighth pick overall.

However new general manager Jon Robinson has been looking ahead to the draft and has made one sweeping declaration.

Every year everyone wonders if we will see any team try to make a trade for the number one pick overall, but this year, anyone looking to do it has been given hope.

Robinson said on Monday that the Titans ""will look at any and all offers that come this way" with regards to the number one pick.

It is certainly not unusual for a GM from the team with the number one pick to declare that he is willing to listen to offers, but could Robinson really trade away the pick?

There is certainly no one unified top prospect coming out of college this year and with the Cleveland Browns in second, could a team in need of a quarterback try to leapfrog them to their number one target?

In the weeks leading up to the draft, all eyes will be on Tennessee to see just what their draft strategy will be.

Shocks guaranteed?

This years draft will already be guaranteed to throw up a few shocks, just from the teams who make up the top 10 picks.

With the likes of the Browns, Titans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars in the top 10, no-one is really surprised to see them there.

But the Dallas Cowboys have certainly shocked everyone this year earning the fourth overall pick in the draft - and who knows what Jerry Jones has planned?
