Mel Kiper NFL Mock Draft 2013

Kiper has the Titans taking Cooper.

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Mel Kiper of ESPN has just posted and update mock draft (In$ider), and he has the Titans taking Jonathan Cooper, OG, UNC. As you might expect, Jommy does not approve of this pick with Chance Warmack still on the board. Here is what Kiper had to say about the pick:

Pick analysis: Adding Cooper just provides an immediate upgrade on the interior of your offensive line. A complete player who gets a great punch and moves really well for his size, he can run block well, pull with ease, move exceptionally well in the screen game and hit moving targets.

Free-agency factor: The Titans are pretty tight against the cap for 2013, so I don't expect free agency to have much impact on the decision they make with this pick.

A few comments:

The Titans are pretty tight against the cap? I must have missed that one.

So Cooper is good in the screen game? Sweet! Now they just need a running back that can actually catch a screen pass and turn it into something.
