2012 NFL Mock Draft: The Titans and Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

This Dontari Poe to the Titans thing seems to be picking up steam. First the Rotoworld guys had the Titans picking him at #20. Today, in Wes Bunting's newest mock, he also has the Titans taking Poe. Here is what he had to say about the pick:

If there is one guy who’s going to get a ton of buzz following the NFL Combine it’s Poe. There aren’t too many guys at his size that can do what he does athletically and he’s only starting to scratch the surface of his potential.

Poe is a guy we will be watching closely at the combine. I still don't really see the Titans spending a first round pick on a defensive tackle, but Poe would be the perfect compliment to Karl Klug, and the perfect replacement for Shaun Smith who seemed to have worn out his welcome by the end of the season in 2011.

The only question is do they really want to spend the 20th pick on a situational guy?
