As the 2012 NFL Draft draws near, many mock drafters are still placing USC Trojan Nick Perry all over the board. But according to our friends over at National Football Post and their latest 7.0 mock draft, Perry will be landing with the New England Patriots with their first round pick, No. 31 overall.
Here Is National Football Post's Wes Bunting with the commentary:
New England has had to piece together their secondary this year, but in terms of talent they could certainly use an upgrade at a number of spots. Barron is a smart, instinctive safety with good ball skills, can play in the box and be effective bumping/running with tight ends underneath.
New England certainly gets the most out of their draft picks, and certainly will have another winner if they select Perry with this pick. And guess what? They still have another first round pick too!
