2. Draft trade with Rams
Jon Robinson’s first draft with the Titans was exciting to say the least.
Tennessee had the first overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Robinson took advantage of a Rams team that was in need of a quarterback and made a deal that netted the Titans some extra draft picks (including a first round pick in 2017).
With those picks (JRob also traded up with Cleveland in 2016), the Titans added Jack Conklin, Derrick Henry, Austin Johnson, Jonnu Smith and Corey Davis.
All of those players have seen significant action for the Titans since the 2016 draft. And they’ve all played a key part in the Titans’ 2019 playoff run.
