2012 NFL Mock Draft: Denver Broncos Could Look At Washington RB Chris Polk

It's no secret that the Denver Broncos rushing attack has been revived in 2011 with the arrival of Willis McGahee, but the 30-year-old back isn't aging backward. The Broncos will likely need to address the position in the 2012 draft. WalterFootball.com sees the Broncos looking at Washington running back Chris Polk in the second round.

It makes sense even if McGahee still has several serviceable years left in the tank. Knowshon Moreno tore his ACL earlier in the season and is likely to not return in 2012. Lance Ball is a decent backup, but he should not be considered a starter if the need ever arose.

Polk has rushed for 1,341 yards and 11 scores so far, and he has the Alamo Bowl against the Baylor Bears to show off his running skills. While Robert Griffin III is likely to the star of the bowl, keep an eye on Polk.
