With the NFL Draft less than three weeks away fans all over the country are wondering what their team will do. With Tennessee sitting at #1 looking to trade back there is excitement brewing in San Fransisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Dallas and even Cleveland about working out a deal to get to the first pick.

The Titans aren’t looking to pick a QB since they drafted Marcus Mariots #2 overall last year and badly need to draft some playmakers to get the team back to being a contender in the AFC South. With the Browns looking to grab a quarterback with the second pick a bidding war is starting to take place between the 49ers, Eagles, Rams and Cowboys about leaping the Browns to get their pick of Jared Goff or Carson Wentz.

In order for these teams to move up to #1 here is what they will likely have to give up to get the Titans’ pick according to the Draft Pick Calculator Jimmy Johnson made famous in the 90s.

Cowboys will give up,

#4 pick in the first round
#34 pick in second round
#67 pick in third round
2nd round pick in 2016

By taking this potential deal with Dallas Tennessee will now have the following picks in the first three rounds.

#4 in the first round
#32 in the second round
#34 in the second round
#64 in the third round
#67 in the third round

Tennessee would potentially be able to take the following players,

#4 Ohio State LB Joey Bosa
#32 Indiana OT Jason Spriggs
#34 Clemson DB Mackensie Alexander
#64 Ohio State DE Adolphus Washington
#67 LSU Safety Deion Jones

New Titans GM Jon Robinson has shown people he’s a wheeling, dealin’, kiss stealing son of a gun and I wouldn’t put it past Tennessee to make another move either up or back down in the draft.

What happens if the Cowboys trade up and take Carson Wetnz and the Browns opt to go with Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey at #2? San Diego picks Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil and the Tennessee is there at #4 with Jared Goff still on the board. Philadelphia wants up from #8 to get him before the 49ers pick at #7. The Eagles have to cough up some picks.

#8 in the first round
#77 in the third round
#79 in the third round

That gives the Titans the following picks in the first three rounds.

#8 in the first round
#32 in the second round
#34 in the second round
#64 in the third round
#67 in the third round
#77 in the third round
#79 in the third round

By making that deal with the Eagles the Titans now own 7 selections in the first 98 picks.

Here are some of the players that Tennessee could take with those picks.

#8 Ohio State LB Joey Bosa
#32 Indiana OT Jason Spriggs
#34 Clemson DB Mackensie Alexander
#64 Ohio State DE Adolphus Washington
#67 LSU Safety Deion Jones
#77 South Carolina WR Pharoh Cooper
#79 Auburn OT Shon Coleman

The Titans need a lot of help and all those players would go a long way in helping Tennessee get back to respectability in the AFC South. But what if Robinson wanted to trade up to grab a playmaker. With two second round picks and four third rounders he certainly has ammo to do it.

Let’s say Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell is still there at #24 and the Bengals want to trade back and get a fw extra picks. The Titans could trade their second pick in round two (#34) and a third (#67) and jump up to get Treadwell.

The Titans have so many options if they trade back and want to wheel and deal. Pick up more picks and then start making deal to fill up the roster with guys who can make a difference.
