The Denver Broncos might have its 2012 NFL Draft slot determined on Sunday should the team lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers. If that happens, the Broncos would select between Nos. 21-24. But until the first set of games are finished, the draft order in mocks is all up in the air. CBS Sports' Rob Rang has the Broncos selecting No. 25 for now. And just like the last time Rang had a new mock draft out, the Broncos wind up taking Michigan St. Spartans defensive tackle Jerel Worthy. There's not much else to add to the selection since Rang doesn't even update the blurb on Worthy.
Around the rest of the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs go with Iowa tackle Riley Reiff at No. 11, which makes sense since offensive tackle is an area of need for the team. The San Diego Chargers select Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw with the No. 18 pick, believing that he could play both standing up and with one hand on the ground.
And the Oakland Raiders see Cincinnati Bengals use the No. 17 pick since they traded it in the Carson Palmer deal. The Bengals use it on Stanford guard David DeCastro. The Raiders' gamble didn't pay off this season.
