Breaking down the Jared Goff trade

The first deal that happened in the 2016 NFL Draft was between the Tennessee Titans and the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams held the 15th pick and were looking to move up to No. 1 overall to select Jared Goff out of the University of California. In order to move up 14 spots to No. 1, they had to give up a plethora of picks.

In this trade, the Rams received the Titans No. 1 overall pick in 2016 as well as their 4th round pick (113 overall) and 6th round pick (177 overall) in 2016. In exchange, the Titans received the Rams No. 15 overall pick, two second round picks at No. 43 and No. 46 overall and the Rams No. 76 overall third round pick in 2016. In addition, they received two 2017 draft picks from the Rams in 2017 in the 1st and 3rd rounds.

The Titans received a 2016 No .15 overall (1,050 pts), 2016 No. 43 overall (470 pts), 2016 No. 45 overall (450 pts), 2016 No. 76 overall (210 pts), 2017 No. 5 overall (1,700 pts), 2017 No. 100 overall (100 pts).

The Rams got 2016 No. 1 overall (3,000 pts), 2016 No. 133 overall (68 pts) and 2016 No. 177 overall (20.6 pts).

According to the draft pick trade value chart, the Titans ended up getting the better value out of this deal. That’s because the Rams had a bad 2016 season finishing 4-12 which gave the Titans the No. 5 pick in the first and third rounds in 2017.  The Titans received 3,980 points worth of picks while the Rams received 3,088.6 points in return.

The Titans won the first big trade of the 2016 NFL Draft by a considerable margin. Let’s take a look at who won when the Eagles traded up to draft Carson Wentz on the next slide.
