2013 NFL Mock Draft: Broncos select Alec Ogletree with 28th pick

USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation's latest mock draft has the Broncos taking ILB Alec Ogletree out of Georgia.

The Denver Broncos will be looking for pass-rushing help after the Elvis Dumervil fiasco. This is expected to be one of the strongest draft classes in years for front seven talent, but if Denver doesn't find what they're looking for at the 28th pick, they could go in a different direction.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar released his latest mock draft on Monday, and he has the Broncos selecting Georgia ILB Alec Ogletree in the first round:

Finding a pass rusher to replace Elvis Dumervil will be difficult with the 28th pick. If there isn't a pass rusher that can play right end, the Broncos would be smart to fall back on their biggest need: middle linebacker. There is some character risk with Ogletree, but his level of talent and athleticism would be hard to pass up.

Datone Jones has been a popular mock pick for Denver recently, but Kadar doesn't have him going in the first round this time around. Bjoern Werner and Damontre Moore are other names that could be available at this spot.
