Prior to the 2012 NFL Combine, Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe was a common pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers in mock drafts. Poe however had a fantastic NFL Combine and showed off his athleticism, which has lead many believe he will be drafted in the Top 15 in the NFL Draft. Mel Kiper of ESPN thinks Poe winds up just outside of the Top 10, but voices some concerns.
I view KC as a possible destination for Dontari Poe.— Mel Kiper Jr. (@MelKiperESPN) April 16, 2012
Memphis DT Dontari Poe wasn't consistently dominant on a game to game basis, but he had plenty of moments where he flashed big time ability.— Mel Kiper Jr. (@MelKiperESPN) April 16, 2012
It's unlikely that Poe will fall all the way to the Pittsburgh Steelers pick at No. 24 overall, but from the sounds of it he could be a risky pick for whoever winds up drafting him.
