2012 NFL Draft: Quinton Coples and Prospects Titans Should Avoid

The 2012 NFL draft is just around the corner, which means another solid draft weekend is in store for the Tennessee Titans.

Tennessee typically drafts well in rounds two through seven, but they have made some weak choices in the first round over the last couple of years that had off-the-field issues and never reached their full potential in the Titan baby-blue jersey.

No. 3 overall pick Vince Young had a solid record as a starter for the Titans, but he didn't evolve into the elite quarterback that he should have after being drafted so high. His attitude problems off the field and in the locker room ultimately led to his departure from Nashville.

They also went with Adam "Pacman" Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in 2005 to see him get involved in many bar fights, battery accusations and even one fatal shooting that led his exit for just a fourth-round pick to the Dallas Cowboys less than three years removed from being a top-10 draft pick.

With such a deep pool of first-round talent and many needs for Tennessee, the draft comes with many players who could end up reflecting Young's and Jones' troubles and hurt the Titans in 2012, both on and off the field.

There are also many first-round potential players whose effectiveness at their position has been put to question.

It would greatly hurt the Titans' chances of winning over the next few years if they chose any of these shaky draft picks with their first-round pick.
