NFL Mock Draft 2012: Could Kendall Wright Fall To The Broncos In Round 2?

The Denver Broncos will need to reload in the 2012 NFL Draft and we can expect that a couple of players will be on offense. Tim Tebow needs more weapons so that he can expand his overall game. Whether that is by taking a running back, a tight end or a wide receiver early on, we can expect Rounds 1 or 2 to be the place for it. Over at Draft Tek, Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright is projected to the Broncos at pick No. 57 in Round 2

Wright is an explosive force who would instantly be one of the top receivers on the team. He would allow the Broncos to move Eric Decker into the No. 3 wide receiver role, giving Tim Tebow Demaryius Thomas on one side of the field and Wright on the other. It would be a major coup for the Broncos to pick up write, as Draft Tek writes:

And if a high pick is spent here, it should be on a guy with speed and hands. Maybe someone who put up numbers like this last year: 108 Rec, 1663 Yds, 15.4 Avg, 14 TD, 128 Yds/G. Maybe a guy who has highlights like this and this and this. Seriously, if Wright is still on the board here, this is a no-brainer.

But will Wright really fall to the second round?
