When predicting national champion and 2015 Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry's selection spot in the NFL Draft, you would think that he would be a first round pick. Henry ended up being taken off the board in the second round at No. 45 by Tennessee Titans.
Earlier this month, the Tennessee Titans traded their No. 1 overall pick, fourth-round (No. 113) and sixth round (No. 177) picks to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a first-round No. 15 pick, No. 43 and No, 45 picks in the second round, and No. 76 in the third round. This is the second year in a row that they Titans selected a Heisman Trophy winner, the first being quarterback Marcus Mariota in 2014.
Tennessee acquired running back DeMarco Murray in a trade from the Eagles back in March. This is a bold move that some find questionable since they just got the veteran Murray, and Mariota needs a wide receiver to throw to.
Yet the Titans have a fairly strong backfield in Murray and Henry on paper, provided that Henry isn't a bust next season. Let's see if this trade makes us remember the Titans for their personnel decisions that work well for them in 2016.
