2012 NFL Mock Draft: Michael Brockers To Broncos In Latest Mile High Report Mock

Mile High Report has checked in with its post-Senior Bowl 2012 NFL mock draft and it's a pretty good projection for the Denver Broncos. In the first round the Broncos go with a defensive tackle, but it's not any of the normal names associated with the team in mock drafts so far. LSU Tigers defensive tackle Michael Brockers is the choice at No. 25. Brockers is big at 6 feet 6 and over 300 pounds. The lasting impression he likely left with many was his blocked field goal in the BCS National Championship Game.

The mock doesn't stop there. It continues in the second round with taking Boise St. Broncos running back Doug Martin, who likely moved his way into being the No. 2 running back in the draft. Over the next few rounds, the Broncos rake defensive tackle Mike Martin (Round 3), wide receiver Marvin McNutt (Round 4) and quarterback Russell Wilson and middle linebacker Jerry Franklin (Round 5).

Overall, that would be a pretty good draft for the Broncos. The team gets two young defensive tackles and a running back who is a solid all-around runner. McNutt gives Tim Tebow a big target to throw to, while Russell Wilson provides the Broncos with a quarterback who could be a decent backup for Tebow. Franklin would be a decent developmental project at middle linebacker.
