2012 NFL Mock Draft: Nick Perry No. 20 To The Tennessee Titans

USC Trojans defensive end Nick Perry had 9.5 sacks in his junior season and, like All-American left tackle Matt Kalil, decided to skip his senior season at USC to turn pro. Also like Kalil, Perry is expected to be drafted in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft in April. In the latest NFL Mock Draft at SB Nation, Perry is projected to be picked No. 20 overall by the Tennessee Titans.

"Tennessee had a solid defense, but they struggled to get to the passer," wrote Ryan Van Bibber in his draft analysis. "Only one team had fewer sacks in 2011. Drafting Perry gives the Titans a real threat on the outside."

Should Perry and Kalil both be drafted in the first round, it would continue a recent run of high NFL draft picks coming from USC. Since 2003 the Trojans have had 15 players drafted in the first round, with at least one first round pick in seven of the last nine drafts.
