2012 NFL Mock Draft: Could Broncos Target A CB In 2nd Round?

The NFL Draft always has most of its focus on the first round, especially now that it is the only round to take place on the first day of festivities. But the second round is quite important as well, and NFL.com's Charlie Casserly has taken a stab at not only the first but also the second round. After giving the Broncos Michigan St. Spartans defensive tackle Jerel Worthy at pick No. 25, Casserly sticks with defense for Denver at No. 57:

57) Broncos: Josh Robinson, CB, UCF. The Broncos need an influx of youth at corner.

It's not a bad pick, by any means, but the Broncos don't need too much help at cornerback yet. Yes, Champ Bailey is aging and will need to move to safety down the line, but the team did sign Tracy Porter and released Andre Goodman. There still isn't much depth there, which makes this pick sensible, but if a running back falls that far down, that position might be the pick.
