NFL Draft 2012: TicketCity Bowl Will Provide Broncos With Look At Penn State DT Devon Still

Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still has been one of the popular choices for the Denver Broncos in many 2012 NFL Mock drafts since it is a position the team does appear to have a need at entering the offseason. Steve Muench at ESPN Insider's NFL Draft blog highlights Still as one of the Big Ten players to watch during the bowl season and believes Denver would be a good landing place for the defensive tackle:

Still can line up on the inside in a four-man front and outside in a three-man front. It will be interesting to see how Denver addresses the defensive tackle position in terms of free agency, but adding Still late in the first round or early in the second makes sense for a Broncos team that could strengthen its run defense.

The arguments for this are tiresome now: Brodrick Bunkley and Marcus Thomas are impending free agents, Ty Warren is injury prone and Kevin Vickerson is a decent player. Adding Still would be the infusion of young talent the Broncos didn't add in 2011.

Still will battle against the offensive line of the Houston Cougars in the TicketCity Bowl on Jan. 2, which takes place at the Cotton Bowl (since the actual Cotton Bowl game is no longer played there). Will he be able to overpower those linemen and knock Case Keenum to the ground?
