Metallic-Sounding Drag In Tilt Steering Column When Turning Wheel

I just noticed that there is a slight drag in my steering wheel when I turn it. I don't have to be driving to notice this. In fact, I probably wouldn't notice it with the truck running. I'm wondering if this is a sign of a bearing problem. If so or potentially so, is my only option to disassemble column and lube or replace bearings? Or can I just ignore it and go on? It's hard to describe, but seems to be metallic in nature. Just a little resistance when rocking steering wheel left or right, even before the point of actually turning the wheels.
