Todd McShay has put out a new two round 2012 NFL mock draft today (In$ider). He has the Tennessee Titans taking Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama in the first round and Orson Charles, TE, Georgia in the second round. We have seen the Kirkpatrick pick a lot in recent days. That makes sense.
The Charles pick in the second round makes little to no sense at all. He would be a pretty good value there, but the Titans don't need another version of Jared Cook on the roster.
Click through the jump to see what McShay had to say about the Kirkpatrick pick:
Adding Kamerion Wimbley addressed the Titans' pass-rush need, so Kirkpatrick will fill a void at corner. He has the size, toughness and instincts to fit nicely in Tennessee's zone-heavy scheme. North Alabama's Janoris Jenkins is a better cover corner but will drop because of character baggage, but rising South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore also could be a consideration here.
