NFL Mock Draft 2012: Sporting News Predicts DT Devon Still For Broncos

The Denver Broncos passed on drafting a defensive tackle during the 2011 NFL Draft, but the 2012 NFL Draft could be a different story. There will be a number of defensive tackles available for the Broncos to draft in the first round if the team's draft board has one at the top of it. Over at the Sporting News, Russ Lande predicts Penn St. Nittany Lions defensive tackle Devon Still for the Broncos.

Lande sees the Brocos going tor a defensive tackle here because the team doesn't have an impact player on the middle of the line. Brodrick Bunkley and Marcus Thomas certainly played well, but Still could be the young player the team builds its defensive line around. With Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller providing the pass rush, Still would be able to clog the middle.
