2013 NFL Mock Draft: Broncos looking for help alongside Von Miller?

Peter G. Aiken-US PRESSWIRE

Denver did not have very many holes in 2012, but there is room to get younger and better in at least one area. Which rookie could help solve that problem?

The Denver Broncos fell short of expectations last season when they lost to the Ravens in overtime during their divisional playoff matchup. However, the Broncos' regular season was not short of being a near-total success after the addition of Peyton Manning in the offseason. Denver wasn't only the second-highest scoring team in the NFL, but they were also fourth in scoring defense and second in total defense. The Broncos were truly a complete football team.

However, they still have some holes to fill and work to do if they are going to be back in position to make the Super Bowl next season. So which player will fit best for Denver in April's draft? Dane Brugler of CBS Sports thinks that OLB Arthur Brown of Kansas State would be an excellent addition:

The Broncos need to add depth in the secondary and interior defensive line, but the also need an athletic, three-down linebacker. Brown might scare some teams away due to his lack of ideal size, but his athleticism, instincts and intangibles makes him more than worth this pick.

Brown is just 6'1 and 228 pounds, but is rated as the fourth best OLB prospect in the draft by NFL Draft Scout. The Broncos currently have 37-year-old Keith Brooking among the players starting next to Von Miller at linebacker and no matter what Denver does, they will probably be looking for additional depth at that position.
