2013 NFL Mock Draft: Broncos bulk up defensive line

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Denver will be in a perfect position to address a big need in the NFL Draft.

Last offseason was a thrilling one for Denver Broncos. It's not every year your team brings in a future Hall of Fame quarterback.

But while the excitement level this offseason won't top last year's, the Broncos still have some work to do to take the team to the next level.

In Dan Kadar's most recent mock draft for SB Nation, the Broncos beefed up the defensive line, adding Alabama defensive tackle Jesse Williams. After a strong second half of the season, Williams has moved into consideration for the first round. He's a load to handle inside and is arguably the strongest player in this year's class.

Here's what Kadar had to say about the pick:

The Broncos need to continue adding talent on the defensive front. Williams can consistently take up two blockers, which would help free up Elvis Dumervil (assuming he's not released).

Other needs the Broncos will look to address on draft weekend include the secondary and linebacker. Plenty of talent should be available at pick No. 25, so the Broncos shouldn't have much trouble addressing their needs.
