The NFL Draft is right around the corner.
With the day of the draft getting closer and closer, teams across the league are faced with a reality check.
Are they okay with their current draft position, or does their front office need to work some magic to move up in the draft?
A recent update has provided insight into one team’s exploration to move up for the third pick.
According to an article by Buck Reising of AZ Sports, he believes NFL Analyst Daniel Jeremiah’s assertion that the Tennessee Titans are putting together a package for the third overall pick in April’s draft.

As Reising points out, the Arizona Cardinals are currently slated to pick third overall.
Because Kyler Murray is under a multiyear contract, the Cardinals don’t have a pressing need at the quarterback position.
The Titans, on the other hand, may be ready to move on from Ryan Tannehill and get younger at quarterback.
Last season, the Titans did draft Malik Willis, but he wasn’t taken until the third round.
In this year’s draft, there are three or four quarterbacks that are said to be taken in the first round.
If the Titans have enough faith in one of those players to lead their team for the foreseeable future, they might be willing to leverage a few players and picks to do so.
The Titans currently hold the 11th and 41st overall picks in the upcoming draft.
If they do trade up for the third pick, these are two assets that will likely be included in this deal.NEXT: Fans React To What Mike Vrabel Said About Ryan Tannehill
