2012 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft: Titans and Dre Kirkpatrick

New, comments

Ryan Van Bibber has put out a new mock draft at SB Nation.com, and he has the Tennessee Titans taking Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama. It is interesting to me seeing how guys fall throughout this process. Kirkpatrick had an arrest for marijuana possession back before draft season really started, and when the first round of mocks came out he was still a top 15 pick.

Now there are more and more mocks that have Kirkpatrick falling at least to #20. There are even some that have him sliding into the mid to late twenties.

Obviously I am biased being an Alabama fan, but he would be a great value for the Titans at 20. He isn't the best cover guy in the world, but he has a physical skill set that is tough to find.

The Titans may be less inclined to reach for a pass rusher here after signing Kamerion Wimbley. Replacing Cortland Finnegan with Dre Kirkpatrick would be a better move.
