Last year Jon Robinson pulled off a trade for the ages. He sent the #1 pick in the 2016 draft to the Los Angeles Rams for 5 picks (a first and two seconds in 2016 and a first and a third in 2017). Well we now have the tally for those picks:
Jack Conklin is already an All-Pro. That alone is probably enough to declare the trade a win for the Titans, but just wait until you see the rookie season that Corey Davis puts together!
In all seriousness, anytime you have a trade like this there are really only 2 ways for the team that did the trading down to not be the “winner:”
- If the quarterback the team traded up to get becomes a franchise quarterback.*
- If the team that trades down takes bad players with the picks.
Since it seems like neither of these scenarios are the case in this trade (though it is entirely to early to know what Goff will be), Jon Robinson is the winner!
*And this wouldn’t necessarily make the team that traded down a loser if they didn’t need a quarterback, which the Titans didn’t.
