The Tennessee Titans are not aggressively shopping the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but general manager Jon Robinson has laid out the price it would take for the team to part with the pick, according to ESPN. 

Speaking at an event at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Robinson said that it would take a “king’s ransom” for his team to take the risk of moving out of the top spot in the draft.

"There is a group of players that are at the top of the draft, that, you don't want to move back too far cause you can miss out on one of those guys, and if you do move back that far you want to make sure that you have a king's ransom, for lack of a better term, to move that far," he said. "I would say that for us to move out of that pick, it's going to take a substantial amount of picks to do that."
