2012 NFL Mock Draft: Fletcher Cox Still Landing With Broncos

There will be a number of quality defensive linemen available at the No. 25 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft when the clock starts ticking for the Denver Broncos. We've seen them all in mock drafts for the last couple of months: Devon Still, Michael Brockers, Jerel Worthy and Fletcher Cox. The latter is the latest choice over at WalterFootball.com.

A defensive tackle could be the main priority for the team in April depending on what happens in free agency. Brodrick Bunkley and Marcus Thomas are both free agents and will be in line to receive a larger contract than their one-year deals they were on in 2011. Kevin Vickerson should return from injury as well as Ty Warren, who didn't play a down for the Broncos.

If Bunkley or Thomas re-sign with the Broncos then it could move the need for a defensive tackle in the first round down. The team does also have concerns at cornerback and could look to running back or tight end to help provide more weapons on offense for Tim Tebow.
