The Tennessee Titans are awash with needs in the 2012 NFL Draft. The secondary might get as many as three new starters. The pass rush needs an upgrade. At linebacker, two rookies started last year but that's no guarantee of future returns. The interior offensive line is pathetic. The wide receiving corps may be improved, although there's a lot riding on a guy coming off an ACL tear. Chris Johnson has a lot to prove.
This draft and all mocks in the near future will occur without free agency, which was the way we did things in last year's unusual offseason. Strangely, doing things the normal way is going to feel weird.
This mock draft will be as if there is no free agency, as that mad rush to switch teams doesn't start for a couple of weeks. The Titans have re-signed a few free agents so far. The players are mostly depth guys.
My approach for this mock was the following: I picked a position per round and found players that fit the position. I included some alternates because these guys are so shiny and pretty that I want to take them all home.
