My Mock Draft (never too early)

1. Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

DeCastro (G, Stanford) would be nice here, but there is more talent for interior OL in round 2. Ingram is a bigger DE (275-280 pounds) who would be a nice fit in Jerry Gray's defence. Our only DE under contract for 2012 is Derrick Morgan. I can see the Titans drafting Ingram and also signing another free agent DE like Dave Ball or perhaps squeeze out a couple more years from John Abraham, provided he comes reasonably cheap.

2. Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin

A big mauler. Something the line has been needing for a while. Wisconsin linemen are well coached so Zeitler could start right off the bat. Goodbye Leroy Harris.

3a. Ryan Broyles, WR/PR, Oklahoma

Broyles was a first round talent whose stock will fall to the third round because of a torn ACL suffered earlier this season. The Titans already have options at receiver, but don't have a prototype slot reciever like Broyles. Broyles would probably start the season as the #4 receiver behind Britt, Washington and Williams. So long Hawk.

3b. (Comp for Babin) Ben Habern, C, Oklahoma

Insurance in case Scott leaves in free agency, or in the alternative, to push Amano out of the starting position. I could see them taking a center higher as I believe Amano is more of a liability than Harris.

4.Neiko Thorpe, FS, Auburn

My gut tells me the Titans either resign Griffin or another veteran free safety. Thorpe will provide depth and play special teams.

5a. Mychal Kendricks, OLB, California

He is projected to go in rounds 3-4, but I am hoping he has a poor combine and falls this far. An underrated tackling machine with a lot of explosion. I think he was also PAC 12 defensive player of the year. Verner, Ayers and Casey will know him from their college days. This would be a steal. He is the type of player who could end up being a very solid starter at the WILL position.

5b. (Comp for Tulloch) Jack Crawford, DE, Penn State

Will fill the 4th DE spot behind Morgan, Ingram and a TBD free agent signing. Munchak will like the PSU connection. Big guy who fits in well with a 4-3.

6. Adrien Cole, ILB, Louisiana Tech

Similar to Tulloch. Shorter, bulkier guy who would possibly back up McCarthy.

7. Janzen Jackson, FS, McNeese State

Played at Tennessee before being dismissed for drug issues. A physical talent from a small school. Sounds like exactly the type of guy the Titans look at with their last pick.
