Report: Titans have received significant interest in No. 1 pick

The Titanshave made it clear that they are willing to deal the 2016 NFL Draft's top pick.

There's been far less certainty about whether they would find a trade partner willing to pay the price of moving up to No. 1.

With a little more than three weeks to go until Tennessee is officially on the clock, MMQB's Peter King reports that such a deal is a legitimate possibility.

"The Titans, holders of the first pick in the draft, will have a chance to make a deal," King writes in his Monday post. "The Titans have received significant interest in the pick. I believe it is now 50-50 whether Tennessee will trade it or keep it."

Any team moving up to No. 1 would likely be doing so to jump ahead of the Browns at No. 2 to take a quarterback before QB-needy Cleveland gets a chance to. The Titans aren't in the market for a QB at the top of the draft after selecting Marcus Mariota No. 2 overall last year.

As for which teams would be most interested in trading up to No. 1 for a QB, the 49ers (No. 7 pick), Eagles (No. 8) and Rams (No. 15) are the most obvious candidates, although the cost of such a move would be extremely prohibitive for the Rams given how far they would have to move up. The 49ers and Rams have a glaring need for a QB, while the Eagles are doing their homework on the top signal-callers available even after re-signing Sam Bradford and signing Chase Daniel this offseason. An NFC exec recently told CFB 24/7 "don't be surprised" if the Eagles make a big move up the board to land North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz.

If the Titans stay at No. 1, their decision could come down to Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil vs. Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey.

There's almost no chance that those two players will be available if they move down, but they won't push themselves out of range to land an elite prospect as long as they don't move outside of the top 10.
