2012 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay Projects Virginia Tech's David Wilson To Broncos

Well before the Denver Broncos brought in Peyton Manning as quarterback, NFL mock drafts featured the team selecting Miami Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller, either in the first or second rounds. While that still could hold true, Todd McShay sees Miller going off the board in his latest mock draft (Insider only) before the Bronco's second round pick, but that doesn't mean Denver will be without a running back to take that round.

McShay projects Virginia Tech Hokies running back David Wilson to the Broncos at No. 57. Wilson is the third and final running back selected in the second round, behind Miller (Bengals, No. 53) and Doug Martin (Steelers, No. 56).

Wilson ran for 1,709 yards on 290 attempts, averaging 5.89 yards per carry. He found the endzone for nine rushing touchdowns. At the Combine, Wilson ran a 4.49 40-yard dash, had a 41-inch vertical and a 132-inch broad jump.
