2012 NFL Draft Grades: Denver Broncos Get 'C+' From CBS Sports' Pete Prisco

CBS Sports NFL Draft analyst Pete Prisco has assessed each team's draft haul, and while he's not as harsh on the Denver Broncos for their Brock Osweiler pick, he only gives them a C+ for their efforts over the weekend.

Analysis: John Elway and crew had a decent draft, but not a great one. The pick of Brock Oseweiler [sic] in the second round probably surprised some people, but they need a long-term answer for when Manning retires. They did get some nice third-day guys.

Grade: C+

Prisco thinks running back Ronnie Hillman was the best pick Denver made, but he doesn't care for the decision to trade out of the first round and draft Derek Wolfe.
