Amid growing speculation the Eagles would trade up in the draft to select a quarterback, the Titans did give away the first pick, but it was to the Rams, the MMQB’s Peter King first reported.
Here are the terms of the deal, which includes the second round pick the Eagles gave up in the Sam Bradford–Nick Foles trade, per ESPN:
Tennessee will send the top selection along with its fourth- (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) picks this year to the Rams in exchange for Los Angeles’ first-round pick (No. 15), two second-round selections (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76) in 2016. The Titans also will get the Rams’ first- and third-round picks in 2017.
According to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the Rams are targeting Carson Wentz. With two quarterbacks possibly going in the top two slots, it’s more likely a highly rated prospect will fall to the Eagles.
