Don Banks of SI.com has released a 2012 NFL Mock Draft, and he has the Titans taking David DeCastro, G, Stanford. Interior offensive line is obviously a need for the Titans, so it is pretty surprising that this is one of the few mock drafts that have the Titans taking a guard. Hopefully they can find their guard in free agency so they do not have to use this pick on a guard.
Click through the jump to see what Banks had to say about the pick.
The Titans need a pass rusher, too, so keep an eye on USC defensive end Nick Perry in this slot. But DeCastro figures to be rated too highly to overlook, and giving the draft's top-rated interior lineman to a team that needs help at guard just makes too much sense. Especially with the Titans being coached by a Hall of Fame guard like Mike Munchak.
Another reason they should not take a guard here is because this is a deep class of guards. They can get a really good one in the second round or later.
