Why isnt Lattimore a no brainer with the 5th pick?

    I would really like to get Jones in the 3rd if he checks out. I think his tweet about playing this year is optimistic though.

    We have picks to trade up

    Especially if we move out of 5 to say 12....?

    He was saying to trading up FROM 5 this time. But Hammer has been pounding the drum for a trade up from 18 for a while now.

    I was just pointing out that if Lattimore is a "no brainer " at 5 then why does logic not dictate a trade up.

    Trading up from 18 would make sense in the event there is someone we want who would be gone by 18. Not just "trading up for the hell of it".

    I was referring to the first part as "trading up for the hell of it". Even if he is a no brainer pick for the Titans, that doesn't mean the 4 teams picking before them are going to snag him. Why move up if the general thought is he will be there at 5?

    Moving up from 18 wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if there's someone that the Titans think is that much better than who will be available at 18...

    My thinking is 18 is still high enough that there should be plenty of quality left and from my understanding most positions this year have a couple of guys on the same tier and there's not a huge drop off once the "top guy" is gone.
