2012 NFL Draft: Mike Mayock Position Rankings

New, comments

ike Mayock of the NFL Network has released a new round of positional rankings, complete with risers and fallers. Mayock did what must have been a three hour conference call yesterday because I saw at least 1,000 Tweets from it. One of the interesting things that came out of it, from a Titans perspective, is that it is a very deep draft for interior offensive lineman. That means it would be silly for the Titans to spend the 2oth pick on one.

Mayock also said that it is a weak draft for defensive ends. That leads me to believe that there will not be a good option for the Titans at 20.

I have listed Mayock's rankings from positions relevant to the Titans after the jump.
