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.
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.
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.
