    our pick isn't anywhere close to being enough to pair with something else to move us up that far. And no one IMO is worth having to make a crazy jump like that.

    The #3 pick is worth about 2200 pts. The Titans 1st 3 picks this year are worth:

    #20 - 850 pts
    #52 - 380 pts
    #84 - 170 pts

    That's only a total of 1400 pts. Assuming we have about the same draft position as next year, we will say that next years 1st is also worth 850 pts. So for us to trade up to the #3 spot, it would realistically take 2 1sts, a 2nd, and a 3rd. That is way too much to give up, especially when this draft is deep at several positions of need for us, and we have a lot of holes that need to be filled. Plus, there really isn't anyone worth trading up for IMO.

    Picks 9 and 10 are worth 1350 pts and 1300 pts respectively. So realistically you are probably looking at having to give up anywhere from 2 1st rd picks to a 1st, a 2nd, and a 3rd/4th.

    There is nobody in this draft worth trading that much for. Last year we were able to find some quality players in the later rounds of the draft that were able to come in and have a significant impact. Thats the route we need to take this year as well.

    The only thing i would be pumped up about in terms of trading up is if we traded up to 13 through 16 to get DeCastro

    I would much rather trade back than trade up, especially if the top talent on our draft boards are gone.

    I was just reading though that we are bringing in Fletcher Cox for a visit I would love that pick at 20 very versatile player. It seems like the defensive players we are looking at are all versatile, and we might be looking to use multiple schemes.

    If a guy they really like is sitting there anywhere past the 10th pick a trade up is very possible. To get up to the 12th or 13th pick it would take giving up our 2nd rounder.

    No way we would move to #3. It is insane and not worth it. Even a guy like Blackmon isn't that much better than Floyd so if we really wanted a top notch WR around #12 might get him. Same for DeCastro and Coples could slide to around that spot as well.

    We can't be that dumb to think we have to trade up to #3 to get Alshon Jeffery.

    Come on Titans, we can get him at #20 :)
