While some had thought the Patriots might still be in contention for Kentucky quarterback Will Levis, that door was closed quickly during Friday night’s coverage of round two of the NFL Draft.

Tennessee struck a deal with Arizona to move up to the 33rd overall spot to select the standout from Kentucky, while giving up the 41st and 72nd selections as well as a 2024 third round pick. The Cardinals also sent the Titans the 81st pick this year as part of the deal.

Levis’s addition certainly makes things interesting, as it adds some pressure on veteran incumbent, Ryan Tannehill, who has seemingly been seeing his seat heat up a fair amount over the last two seasons.

There are some who even believe that he could ultimately be moved before this draft even comes to an end, which will be interesting to keep an eye on over the next 24hrs.

Should that not come to fruition, it’s still a bad sign for his future, with Levis now the player the Titans will clearly be sticking with after this season given that they just traded up to make sure they got him in the fold.

Tannehill is currently in the final year of the four-year, $118 million contract he signed back in March of 2020, which included $62 million that was fully guaranteed.
