NFL Mock Draft 2013: Broncos select Damontre Moore and address other needs

Denver suffered a brutal playoff defeat and now needs to reload for another Super Bowl run.

In SB Nation's three-round mock draft written by Matthew Fairburn, the Denver Broncos did well for themselves, filling a trio of needs.

In order, the Broncos selected defensive end Damontre Moore of the Texas A&M Aggies, UCLA Bruins running back Jonathan Franklin and San Diego State corner Leon McFadden.

Moore could potentially be one of the great steals in this draft should he fall to Denver at No. 28 overall. Moore was considered a top-five pick before a bad combine took the wind out of his sails. After the Broncos lost Elvis Dumervil because using a fax machine can apparently be hard and stuff, Denver needs a pass rusher like Moore.

Franklin would also be a smart addition considering running back is the one weak spot on the Broncos offense. The addition of Franklin would push Knowshon Moreno to either shape up or ship out while giving the Broncos another option for backing up Willis McGahee.

McFadden would have the opportunity to come in and learn behind future Hall of Famer Champ Bailey and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who came to the Broncos on a one-year deal. McFadden could be part of the future, but he would be more long-term and probably see some special teams time.
