Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com has put out his 4th mock draft of the draft season, and he has the Tennessee Titans taking Michael Brockers, DL, LSU. This pick would no doubt make Trevor happy, but I am not a huge fan. Here is what Silva had to say about it:

Brockers' myth-driven hype train has screeched to a halt of late. He isn't nearly as athletic as some portrayed, and it's highly questionable whether Brockers will ever develop into a pass rusher. LSU coaches certainly didn't think he was, pulling Brockers off the field on nickel downs. He is a long, powerful force, however, and Tennessee is in search of more girth on the interior.

While I agree that the Titans would like to add girth on the inside (TWSS), it is so much more important for them to add a pass rusher with this pick. They can find a big body to eat up space later in the draft.
