Jim Wyatt, the senior writer/editor of TitansOnline.com might have given us some inside information on Sunday night as he made the rounds of local television stations to talk about the Tennessee Titans, the upcoming NFL draft and the first overall selection that currently belongs to the Titans..
While appearing on WSMV-4 here in Nashville, Wyatt, who is a team employee spoke about joining Robinson, head coach Mike Mularkey and the rest of the Titans contingents last week on their trips to pro-days to watch both potential top picks Laremy Tunsil and Jalen Ramsey.
According to Wyatt, Robinson had him join the trips to report on the events as they occurred, including reporting to social media about what members of the Titans staff were along on the trips.
Wyatt stopped short of giving away too many details, but reading between the lines, it's easy to see that the purpose of his travels with the team were to help Robinson build some momentum toward a potential trade of the top pick.
Robinson and the Titans need another team to fall in love with one of the top quarterbacks or even Tunsil or Ramsey and want to trade up to number one to get the player they covet.
Having his own team's personal media man- and one of the best, nicest and most respected media voices for the team- to share the details of the Titans time with the top to players can't do anything but help.
Robinson can't do much to hype quarterbacks Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, as no one would believe he has any interest in drafting either, but keeping the Titans in the spotlight and headlines at the top of the draft can't hurt his cause.
Robinson has repeatedly said that he is comfortable if the Titans have to "stick and pick" in the top spot, but he has also been equally ready to comment on potential trades where the Titans would acquire more picks in this, or future drafts. After all, it is no secret that Robinson wants to build this roster through the draft and use free agency to fill in some blanks.
Getting more selections would allow him to take a bigger step toward reworking the roster in just one season than if he sits with the eight current selections he currently controls.
It's a big game, one that Robinson is showing he knows well and is not afraid to play. That's good for the Titans and it's exciting a fan base that was desperate for anything to get excited about in relation to the team.
