We are very close to April and we are less than a month away from the NFL Draft. For me, it does not even seem that far away since we have been so busy with free agency and the Manning/Tebow fiasco. Suddenly before you know it, the draft is close. Last year it took so long to come because every day we had to hear about litigation and...all that junk.
Todd McShay of ESPN is one of their draft experts and released his most updated mock draft today. Like most of us, McShay see's the Broncos needing to fill a major hole in the middle of the Broncos defensive line. Rumors have the Broncos trying to re-sign Marcus Thomas but right now we do not have a lot after Broderick Bunkley moved to New Orleans.
The Broncos have the 25th pick in the draft and McShay has the Broncos taking......
LSU Defensive Tackle, Michael Brockers. McShay had this to say about the Broncos taking the prospect:
The interior defensive line is clearly the Broncos' biggest need, and Brockers could prove to be a steal at this point. He has a big (6-5, 323), well-proportioned frame and better mobility than his production indicates, and, with some coaching and time in the weight room, Brockers could become a force.
Brockers is someone I have wanted for months and I would be very excited about this pick. To be honest, we cannot be too picky about who we get for that position because its pretty light right now.
In the second round, McShay has the Broncos adding another member to the backfield. There is a crowded backfield right now for the Broncos so there would be a lot of competition. McShay has the Broncos taking....
Virginia Tech Running Back David Wilson. Mocking The Draft.com has this to say about the back.
Virginia Tech's running back David Wilson brought in some top-performance numbers at the NFL combine. He ran an official time of 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash. However, compared to other prospects Wilson fell short: Miami's Lamar Miller (4.40), Florida's Chris Rainey (4.45), San Diego State's Ronnie Hillman (4.45), Cincinnati's Isaiah Pead (4.47) and Texas A&M Cryrus Gray (4.47).
Despite the 40-yard dash time for Wilson, was the top performer in other categories. The 206-pound running back had a 41 inch vertical jump, 132 inch broad jump, 4.12 seconds in the 20-yd shuttle and 11.59 seconds in the 60-yd touch down shuttle run.
