NFL Draft: Tennessee Titans willing to wheel and deal to enhance options

The Tennessee Titans are prepared to explore all options to enhance their roster at the 2022 NFL Draft.

With less than two weeks to go until the 2022 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans are willing to go to great lengths to gain picks.

The Titans are desperate to add depth to their offensive line while 2021 will serve as a reminder that they also have to find an understudy to running back Derrick Henry.

As things stand, the Titans will be able to deploy one pick in the first, third and fifth rounds, and two in the fourth and sixth rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Everything is on the table

Titans general manager Jon Robinson says that the franchise will listen to any offers.

Robinson has set out his stall to acquire more picks and will be willing to trade any member of the roster if necessary.

When it comes to their first pick, 26th overall, Robinson said it would be all about picking the best player available to improve their roster.

"I think everything is on the table," Robinson admitted at an NFL owners meetings. "We talk about it every year - we don't play until September.

"The roster is never final until September and you are working every avenue to try and improve your football team.

"We feel like we have bolstered our football team in free agency this offseason with some guys we've brought back, some guys that were released from other teams, and then trades.

"And we'll do the same thing in the draft. I would say that no position is off the table if we think they can help our football team.

"We'll try to position ourselves to take the best player that we think can help our football team there at 26, and when we're on the clock again.

"But, we'd love to have more picks, if we can trade," Robinson added.

The smart money is on the Titans taking an offensive lineman or wide receiver in the first round.

They are not expected to trade up in the first round unless they are able to lock in a big-ticket quarterback.

The 2022 NFL Draft will begin on Thursday 28 April, and wrap up on Sunday 30 April.
