NFL Draft Order 2015: Titans Need a Buccaneers Win to Get First Pick

Well, the Titans didn't get the help they needed in week 16, so now the only way the Titans can get the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft is if the Buccaneers beat the Saints in week 17.  The good news there is that New Orleans has been eliminated from playoff contention.  They have nothing to play for on Sunday.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers haven't won a game at home or a division game all season.  That means the odds have to be in their favor this week, right?

The Titans will face a Colts team that should come into L.P. Field angry.  Indianapolis was embarrassed by the Cowboys last week.  They are not going to want to limp into the playoffs with 2 straight losses.  Andrew Luck probably won't play the whole game, but that means we will get to see our old friend, Matt Hasselbeck.

The Titans will pick second if they lose to the Colts.  That should still give them the pick of the best defensive player in the draft because Marcus Mariota is going #1 overall to someone.
