Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft

Not to be outdone by Todd McShay, Mel Kiper has also put out a new 2012 NFL mock draft today (In$ider). It is interesting that he also has the Titans selecting David DeCastro of Stanford. Here is what Kiper had to say about the pick:

The Titans also need pass-rush help, but if things break this way, DeCastro represents tremendous value, and that offensive line could use the help after a year where the running game totally fell apart. DeCastro is the kind of player you can draft who won't get big headlines, but will pay immediate dividends because they can plug him in Week 1. Obviously, if a pass-rusher they like falls to No. 20, they could go that direction.

It is going be really interesting to see how all of this plays out. Assuming the Titans don't add a pass rusher in free agency, it would be really tough for them to take DeCastro with Nick Perry still on the board unless they really do not think he will be a good pass rusher at the next level.
