2011 NFL Mock Draft: Nick Fairley Headed to Tennessee in Mel Kipers Last Mock
2011 NFL Mock Draft Has Nick Fairley Heading to Tennessee
With the draft just hours away we will be soon finding out who each team will land with their first round picks. ESPN’s Mel Kiper released his last mock draft for the 2011 draft and he has the Tennessee Titans picking up Auburn’s Nick Fairley.
“I'll stick with Fairley here. As I've said before, defensive line probably falls lower on the list of team needs behind the obvious question of who will be taking snaps, but it's not a minor need. And to get the most productive interior lineman in the college game last year, a player who was simply unblockable against really good competition, is a solid get for the Titans at No. 8 overall. Fairley gives you immediate help at a key position and he offers the value of a top-five pick. Disruptive versus both the run and the pass, he will help this defense now and the Titans can look for a linebacker later on. Why has Fairley fallen? For me, it's just mainly because of the fact that, while brilliant in that one season, he has less of a body of work. But he's by no means dropping on talent questions.”
I really like the pick for the Titans. Fairley is a solid prospect coming off a solid college season.
Are there other directions the team could go at No. 8? Yes, but Fairley seems like the safest bet here.
