The Tennessee Titans have traded the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft to the Los Angeles Rams, the Titans announced Thursday.

In exchange, the Titans will receive the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft along with two second-round picks and a third-round pick. They also obtain first- and third-round picks in the 2017 draft.

In total, the Rams receive the No. 1 pick for this year’s draft and fourth- and sixth-round picks in 2017.

“Being able to acquire six players in the top 76 this year, along with next year when you factor that into it—I am assuming five in the top three rounds—that is 11 players that we can add to this football team that should not only increase our depth, but give us good quality players at all those positions,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said.

The Eagles, who have the No. 8 pick, were reportedly engaging in talks about trading for the No. 1 pick before it fell to the Rams.
