With the No. 20 pick in the 2012 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans Select...
Nick Perry, DE, USC
While the titans were the only better than .500 team that didn't make the playoffs, they had the second worse pass rushing defense in the league. Nick Perry is the most explosive player in the draft. He will be a major boost to the defensive line that is a major need at this point. His lack of size gives him the versatility to also move to outside linebacker if needed.
Three of the Titans defensive ends are up for free agency and even though Perry has one of the highest ceilings, he still needs some polishing, He's the best fit to play opposite Derrick Morgan. The titans rely a lot on the Pac-12 as their first 3 picks last season came from the Pac-12.
Nick Perry Highlights:
Joe Goodberry's Instant Analysis:
One of the Titans biggest needs is at defensive end. They signed free agent Kamerion Wimbley to play DE but it is still a big need. Perry can be very hot and cold at times but I think he has a bunch of potential as a pass rusher.
