The Tennessee Titans have reportedly explored trading down from their 11th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer.
According to Breer, the Titans have done their homework on quarterbacks and others believe they may even trade up to secure their desired player. However, recent calls from the Titans have actually been in an effort to trade down, which they may be able to accomplish if the right players fall into their lap. Specifically, the Titans may consider trading down if the second-best tackle, second-best corner, or the right quarterback falls to their spot.
If the Titans decide to stick with their pick, they have a number of options to consider. They could draft a player at any of those positions mentioned by Breer, or they could look elsewhere to address needs on their roster. The Titans are a team that has been on the rise in recent years until 2022, but have released a number of veteran players this offseason.
Breer also noted that the Atlanta Falcons, who hold the 8th overall pick, have explored trading back a few spots. This news aligns with previous reports that suggest the Falcons are looking to acquire more picks and build up their roster in the coming years. Additionally, the Detroit Lions have reportedly made calls about trading down from their 18th overall pick, indicating that trading down is a popular strategy for teams in this draft.
As the draft approaches, teams will continue to explore their options and make last-minute decisions to improve their rosters. The Titans, Falcons, and Lions are just a few of the teams that are making headlines with their draft plans, and there are sure to be more surprises in store.
