NFL Mock Draft 2013: With the 28th overall pick, the Broncos select Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State CB

USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation's latest mock draft has the Broncos picking Mississippi St. CB Johnthan Banks 28th.

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft released its latest mock draft Monday morning, where they have the Denver Broncos selecting Mississippi State CB Johnthan Banks with the 28th pick.

If it seems like a reactionary pick after Champ Bailey's poor showing in the Divional Round, it probably is, but he is turning 35 years old:

For the Broncos, it may be time to find a new No. 1 cornerback and Banks can be a good one. Banks has good size and can get physical with opposing receivers.

The Broncos have very few legitimate holes on offense, so look for them to continue shoring up a defense that badly let them down in the playoffs. They may also be looking for an upgrade on Rahim Moore, so guys like Texas S Kenny Vaccaro, Fresno St. S Phillip Thomas and LSU S Eric Reid could all be available here. Another possibility is Georgia ILB Alec Ogletree to take over for an aging Keith Brooking.
