USC Trojans defensive end Nick Perry is projected to be a top prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft. Many experts and columnists predict he will be a popular target for NFL teams late in the first round.
In their latest mock draft, CBS Sports analysts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler offer two different takes on the first round in the 2012 draft.
These two lists mark some of the highest positioning that Perry has seen on any mock drafts so far. Rang places Perry at No. 12 overall, sending him to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round. Neither Rang nor Brugler provide in-depth explanations of their mock draft selections, but Perry would fill a definite need that is reportedly at the top of Seattle's offseason "to-do" list.
Brugler, meanwhile, suggests that Perry might go to the San Diego Chargers with the No. 18 pick, which was a popular mock draft prediction early on in the NCAA offseason.
