2012 NFL Draft: Peter King Predicts DT Michael Brockers For Broncos

Over at SI.com, Peter King has released his 2012 NFL mock draft a week ahead of the actual event. For the Denver Broncos, King's projected pick is LSU Tigers defensive tackle Michael Brockers, a selection that firmly fits with most thinking about the team's draft:

Denver will be stunned that Brockers is still on the board. And delighted. The Broncos lost free-agent defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley to the Saints a month ago, and this raw but promising 6'5" 322-pounder could play nose or a more versatile tackle role. "On potential," one coach told me, "Brockers deserves to be a top 10 pick."

Brockers, we'll recall, had several exciting plays during LSU's loss in the national title game, including a blocked field goal. It's no lock the Broncos will take a defensive tackle, but Brockers would be as good as any one the team could take.

The Broncos could take a look at those guys who go at Nos. 28 and 30 (defensive tackle Jerel Worthy and tight end Coby Fleener), but Brockers appears to be the correct choice here.

2012 NFL Draft Order: Broncos Hold 7 Choices Heading Into April Event

After the Denver Broncos failed to be one of the 15 teams to receive compensatory draft picks, the team's draft selections are now finally set, barring any trades. The Broncos still hold their initial first-, second-, third- and fourth-round draft picks, as well as the fourth- and sixth-round choices received in the Tim Tebow trade and the fifth-round selection received in the Brandon Lloyd trade.

The Broncos traded their own 2012 fifth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns back in 2010 for quarterback Brady Quinn. The sixth-round choice went to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Brodrick Bunkley trade while the seventh-round pick belongs to the New York Jets as the last piece of the Tebow trade.

Here is a complete list of the 2012 NFL Draft order:

Round 1, Pick No. 25
Round 2, Pick No. 57
Round 3, Pick No. 87
Round 4, Pick No. 108 (from New York Jets)
Round 4, Pick No. 120
Round 5, Pick No. 137 (from St. Louis Rams)
Round 6, Pick No. 188 (from Jets)

2012 NFL Mock Draft: SI.com's Don Banks Predicts TE Coby Fleener To Broncos

For the Denver Broncos, the 25th overall draft pick represents an intriguing challenge for the team since they could go in multiple directions with it. Defense seems the most likely, but what about getting a brand new, shiny weapon for Peyton Manning. That's exactly what SI.com's Don Banks predicts in his latest NFL mock draft with the Broncos taking Stanford tight end Coby Fleener:

The Broncos landed themselves a starting quarterback in free agency, and I bet it would make him happy to get a young, play-making weapon like Fleener in the first round. Fleener further impressed NFL scouts with a stellar pro day showing this week, and he has emerged as the draft's clear-cut top tight end prospect.

This mock draft was made before the Broncos signed both Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme on Friday. That would seem to make this an unlikely fit going forward, but if Fleener is the top player on the team's board when it comes time for pick No. 25, he might just be the selection. Peyton Manning is a dangerous weapon and giving him multiple options to throw to only helps him more.
