I am just going to go ahead and warn you that it is going to be mock draft day here at MCM. All of the big media guys are pushing out their final NFL mock drafts today, and I am going to try and update as many of them as I can. Mike Mayock, in what I think is the first time ever, has his latest mock draft online at NFL.com. He has the Titans selecting Nick Fairley:
If the Titans can re-sign free agent defensive ends Jason Babin and Dave Ball, they can plug in Fairley immediately to upgrade the middle of the defensive line.
Here is his top 7:
1. Cam Newton- Panthers
2. Von Miller- Broncos
3. Marcell Dareus- Bills
4. A.J. Green- Bengals
5. Patrick Peterson- Cardinals
6. Julio Jones- Browns
7. Blaine Gabbert- 49ers
He has a total of 4 quarterbacks going in the first round with Jake Locker plugged in at the Patriots second pick and Andy Dalton plugged in at the Packers pick. He says that those are a couple of prime spots for teams to move up to take those guys.
Paul Kuharksy said this morning on the radio that the Titans should be able to get from 39 to 32 with a package that includes the 39th pick and the 109th pick. If that is all it takes Mike Reinfeldt shouldn't hesitate to make it happen.
