2012 NFL Draft: Kendall Wright Projected For Broncos By SB Nation

The Denver Broncos have signed Peyton Manning and surrounded him with the free agent signings of tight ends Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme, but the team will still need more options for the quarterback to throw to this fall. In the latest SB Nation 2012 NFL mock draft, the Broncos select with the No. 25 overall pick Baylor Bears wide receiver Kendall Wright:

Wright's Combine and pro day had some wondering about his first-round talent, all because of his 40 time. Foolishness. Wright can get down the field and has the explosiveness to get away from defenders. Peyton Manning could make him a household name this season.

If we add the two tight ends and Wright to the existing receiving corps of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, Manning would have five strong options to toss the ball to in the fall. That's a deadly situation for opposing teams.

Still, the Broncos might be better served by looking at a defensive tackle at this point; however, Devon Still is long gone at this point, which might lead to the Broncos opting for offense.
