2012 NFL Mock Draft: National Football Post Project RB Lamar Miller To Broncos

The 2012 NFL Draft will almost certainly see its first two picks be quarterbacks: Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. However, the Denver Broncos will need to wait until No. 25 to make their first-round selection. It can go in any number of ways, and in the National Football Post's latest mock draft the Broncos selected Miami Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller.

Bunting writes of the selection:

Miller is the kind of big-play back that could really enhance the Denver offense. He’s a guy who can press the edge, be electric in space and take a lot of pressure off QB Tim Tebow from having to consistently run the football.

But if we look beyond the No. 25 pick, there are players in the next several picks that the Broncos might want more than Miller: WR Kendall Wright, CB Stephon Gilmore, LB Luke Kuechly. Willis McGahee is already over 30 years of age and unable to carry the entire load, but running backs typically fall, which could leave the Broncos with a running back in the second round.
