2012 Live Mock Draft: Tennessee Titans Select...

Today I took part in Zoneblitz.com‘s live mock draft. As editor of TitanSized.com, I obviously played the part of the Tennessee Titans front office. When it came my time to pick, all of these players were already off the board:

Colts Luck
Redskins Griffin
Vikings Kalil
Browns Richardson
Buccaneers Claiborne
Rams Floyd
Jaguars Blackmon
Dolphins Tannehill
Panthers F. Cox
Bills L. Kuechly
Chiefs DeCastro
Seahawks Melvin ingram
Cardinals Reiff
Cowboys Coples
Eagles Brockers
Jets Barron
Bengals Kirkpatrick
Chargers

Hightower

Bears Mercilus

As such, here is my pick and explanation:

Tennessee Titans: Nick Perry – Defensive end/Linebacker – Southern California
Pick made by Justin Stewart, editor of Titan Sized (Twitter: titan_sized)

Explanation: With players like Ingram, Cox, Coples, Kirkpatrick, Mercilus and Barron off the board, the Titans really only have one way to go: defensive end Nick Perry. They need a star end on the line and Derrick Morgan’s status is up in the air. Kamerion Wimbley certainly has potential, but this is the first time in his career that he’ll be playing defensive end full-time. With Perry being the best remaining option at the position, the Titans will take him. Perry has shown great athleticism and the ability to put on lots of muscle weight fast without affecting his speed or anything else. He has a high ceiling and fits Jerry Gray’s scheme well. The Titans would have been interested in Mercilus had he been there, but he also has too many question marks. The Titans will be happy with Perry. He gives the team serious potential as he gets thrown into rotation during his first year. With Morgan, Wimbley, Dave Ball and now Perry, the defensive end position is pretty well solidified.
