2012 NFL Mock Draft: Broncos Take Devon Still In 1st Round Of 4-Round Mock

It's a fool's errand to project an NFL mock draft for four rounds, but there's one over at Mocking the Draft. While it will likely be quite wrong come the actually draft, and, really, it will be obsolete in a couple of days, the Denver Broncos do come away with a nice haul in the projection. In the first round, the Broncos take defensive tackle Devon Still, who would instantly upgrade the Broncos attack up the middle of the defensive line. With several potential free agent losses at the position, the Broncos could certainly go this route in the first round.

In the second, the Broncos pick up Miami Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller, who has often been projected as a first-round selection for Denver. If the Broncos could pick Miller up in the second round it could be a similar story to 2002's draft of drafting Clinton Portis in the second round.

Then in the third round, the Broncos take Iowa cornerback Shaun Prater. Prater could prove to be better than Andre Goodman, we would hope. And in the fourth round pick up wide receiver Ryan Broyles from Oklahoma. He's coming off a knee injury that ended his season in November. However, he'd certainly be another weapon for Tim Tebow to look for on the field.
