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

This is the most out of left field mock draft I have seen so far this season outside of the one that had the Titans Juron Criner with the 20th pick. Evan Silva of Roto World and Josh Norris have put out a mock draft that has the Titans taking Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis. Here is what they had to say about the pick:

Poe's collegiate resume doesn't jump off the page, but the athletic, 6-foot-5, 350-pound behemoth will be coveted on draft day. Titans defensive line coach Tracy Rocker is still in search of wide bodies to execute his scheme. While returning rookies Karl Klug and Jurell Casey flashed promise as first-year pass rushers at 300 pounds or less, Poe would add a new dimension as an immovable nose tackle capable of attracting double teams and swallowing up enemy ball carriers.

We know that a lot has been made of the Titans wanting to get bigger on the defensive line, but this guy seems like an ideal nose tackle. That is something the Titans don't really use since they don't run a 3-4. I have seen a lot of mocks with Poe going in the first round, but it doesn't make a lot of sense for it to be to the Titans.
