2012 NFL Mock Draft: Titans and Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois

Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft has put out a new mock draft. He has the Titans taking Whitney Mercilus (pronounced mercy-less), DE, Illinois. Here is what Dan had to say about the pick:

Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois: Only one team had fewer sacks this season than the Titans. Mercilus would give them the player who can get after the passer and stay at home against the run. Also look for the Titans to consider a cornerback, especially if Cortland Finnegan doesn't return.

The defensive end debate is going to be an interesting one leading up to the draft. Every site you go on is going to have a different opinion on who is the best pass rusher. I have seen a couple of sites that have Mercilus as the top rated guy.

Be sure and tune in to MCM Radio next week because Dan is going to join August and I to break down the draft from a Titans perspective.
