2012 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation Predicts Baylor's Kendall Wright To Denver Broncos

There are still a few weeks until the end of the 2011 NFL regular season, but it's never too soon to start with the SB Nation 2012 NFL mock drafts.The Denver Broncos have risen from what looked to be a lost season a high draft pick to now holding the No. 25 overall pick. And that means no Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III or Matt Barkley for the team -- however, one feels about that.

As for whom the Broncos will select, Ryan Van Bibber has the Broncos selecting Griffin's wide receiver at Baylor, Kendall Wright. He has 101 receptions for 1,572 yards and 13 touchdowns. Van Bibber terms Wright a "downfield threat."

It would be a decent selection. The Broncos have Demaryius Thomas emerging as a go-to receiver (his multiple drops on Sunday, notwithstanding) and Eric Decker is likely better suited as the No. 3 receiver in the future. Tebow will need a strong supporting cast around him in order to continue to succeed.
