Mel Kiper has put out a new mock two round draft today (In$ider), and he is stealing ideas from me. He has the Tennessee Titans taking Dre Kirkpatrick with the 20th overall pick. I am not always on board with the decisions Kiper makes for the Titans, but he did really well in this one.

He has the Titans taking Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall with the 52nd pick. That would be really good value with both picks.

Click through the jump to see what Kiper had to say about both of the picks.

On Kirkpatrick:
The Titans lost their top cover corner in free agency, and Kirkpatrick has the talent and experience to contribute right away. Really tall for the position, people see his size and assume he'd become a safety, but he does everything a shorter corner can do, and will utilize his length to become a guy who can be left on an island against big targets, even in the red zone.

On Curry:

Another player who could be a Round 1 guy on some boards, Curry can provide rush help early on.
