Are 2011 NFL Mock drafts making any last minute adjustments less than 24 hours until the real thing hits the airwaves? Mel Kiper made an adjustment in his final mock draft (Insider access required) with the Denver Broncos' No. 2 overall pick. While he previously saw Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus going to the Broncos, Kiper now projects Texas A&M linebacker/pass-rusher Von Miller as the selection.
He sees Miller as a player with "dynamic upside" who can help the Broncos go immediately after the opposing quarterback. Teaming him in a defensive scheme with Elvis Dumervil could create matchup havoc for other coordinators. The Broncos struggled to break the 20-sack mark in 2010, finishing with a league-worst 23.
Colorado's top prospects, tackle Nate Solder and cornerback Jimmy Smith, go back-to-back at No. 22-23. The Colts get a young tackle who can protect Peyton Manning as he ages into the sunset, and Smith provides the Eagles with a player who could be a shutdown cornerback.
