The NFL Draft is mere hours away and already there could be a massive shake up. The Arizona Cardinals are rumored to be in talks with the Tennessee Titans for a groundbreaking trade prior to the Draft, according to ProFootballTalk on Twitter.
Hearing Cardinals are trying to send No. 3 overall and DeAndre Hopkins to Titans for No. 11 pick plus more.

In the rumored proposal, the Titans would move up to the third overall pick and also shockingly acquire DeAndre Hopkins. The Cardinals would land the 11th pick from Tennessee, but obviously it would require far more for this deal to get done.
However, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport denies that Hopkins has been involved in any of the discussions. “While the Titans have had conversations about a potential trade up to No. 3 — among other spots — they have not had conversations centered around star WR DeAndre Hopkins, source said,” Rapoport tweeted.
Clearly Tennessee is certainly interested in moving up to the third pick of the draft. That is a coveted spot in this year’s NFL Draft, particularly for the Titans. Despite using an early round choice on Liberty’s Malik Willis in the NFL Draft last year, it’s believed the team has soured on him since.
Ryan Tannehill is not looked at like a long-term option any longer.
The Carolina Panthers are rumored to be taking Alabama QB Bryce Young with the first overall pick. But there are a few other quarterbacks expected to go high in the draft, namely CJ Stroud, Will Levis and Anthony Richardson. However, the Indianapolis Colts (4th pick), Las Vegas Raiders (7th pick) and Atlanta Falcons (8th pick) could very well draft a quarterback.
There is nothing quite like the NFL Draft. Let the fun begin.
