Andrew Perloff of SI.com has a mock draft up, and he has the Titans taking Nick Perry, DE, USC. Perloff's mock is particularly interesting because he makes trades. Here is what he had to say about the Perry pick:

The Titans ranked 31st in the NFL with just 28 sacks last season. Perry had 9.5 sacks as a junior and could move up in the draft process as teams study his work at USC.

I have already looked at about 50 mock drafts, and this is the highest I have seen Perry going. He did have a nice season last year with 9.5 sacks, and the Titans will need a defensive end, so the pick makes sense.

The big trade from that mock is the Browns moving up from #4 to #2 to select Robert Griffin III. At this point there is no doubt in my mind that a team is going to move up to get RG3 because the Rams and Vikings are not going to take him.
