We're just a bit over 24 hours until the 2012 NFL Draft, which means it's time to break out those seven-round mock drafts that will ultimately prove futile for any predictive purposes. But Chad Reuter's projected seven-round mock draft lands the Denver Broncos some solid picks. Here is the complete list:
1 (25) Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
2 (57) Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
3 (87) Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
4 (108) Ben Jones, C, Georgia
4 (120) Jonathan Massaquoi, DE, Troy
5 (137) Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
6 (188) Trevin Wade, CB, Arizona
Brockers addresses the team's immediate need at defensive tackle while Osweiler will receive a couple of years or so of studying behind Peyton Manning. Givens provides depth for a receiving corps that was so stretched at one point last fall that Tim Tebow needed to play the slot. Ben Jones could push J.D. Walton, who was almost pushed out until Jeff Saturday decided to go to the Green Bay Packers.
Gray could work well with Willis McGahee, who likely won't receive as many touches as he did last year (injuries came on late in the season for him).
