Tennessee Titans likely to move back, add picks in NFL Draft


With the NFL Draft just one week away, the Tennessee Titans should be in the final stages of preparation before the big day.

Tennessee doesn’t have a third round pick after trading it to San Francisco to move up and snag Justin Hunter. That’s something general manager Ruston Webster hopes to change, according to WKRN’s Cory Curtis.

“This is thought to be one of the deepest drafts in years with starting caliber talent available as late as the third or fourth round.  Getting that extra pick likely means trading down from number 11 in the first round and Webster does not sound opposed to doing it, “I’d like to get the pick back, I think if there’s a possibility to add multiple picks, not just that, I think that’s something we’d like to do.  You just have to have a partner to do it.  We’ll see what happens.”

The 49ers are well-equipped, holding a handful of picks and selecting from the No. 30 spot. It will be interesting to see if Tennessee can swing a deal in its favor after trading with San Francisco, or if the Titans have to go a different route to get back a few picks.
