NFL Mock Draft 2012: SB Nation Returns To Lamar Miller For Broncos

The 2011 NFL season is over and now we can go full speed ahead to the 2012 NFL Draft and free agency, SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber comes with his first post-Super Bowl NFL mock draft and the result for the Denver Broncos is not unexpected. Van Bibber gives the Broncos Miami Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller once again.

Citing the need to put weapons around Tim Tebow, Van Bibber sees the Broncos needing a speed back to help the quarterback out, a role Miller could fit:

Miller has capability to make big plays, with his combination of moves and speed. It would pair well with Tebow in the option offense.

The Broncos could also look at defensive tackle, secondary or even tight end with this pick. The NFL Combine is just a few weeks away, which should help provide a bit more focus for the Broncos in the draft.
