2012 NFL Mock Draft: Draft Deepest At DT

Updated: February 16, 2012

It’s very interesting what the draft pundits are starting to say as we are a week away from the combine in Indy. I don’t think I will be going this year, but if you are going and want to be a road correspondent for MDHQ please feel free to contact us.

Going into the draft you are starting to see mock drafts shape up more and more. One thing that I’ve seen that hasn’t settled is the place of tackles like DT Devin Still, Dontari Poe and Jerel Worthy. I’ve seen them mocked as highly as top 10, to all the way in the late 20’s and second round.

According to NFL Insider Mike Mayock, defensive tackle just may be the strongest position in the whole draft. So for teams looking for help at DT that don’t want to roll the dice on a guy like Albert Haynesworth they will have plenty of options to choose from in the college draft. Here is what he said:

Mayock thought the draft is deepest at defensive tackle. He has 5-7 first rounders at that position. He says it’s very thin at defensive end, but very deep for interior offensive linemen. So if you need a big ugly on either side of the ball, this is your draft.
