Official WCG Mock Draft - Pick #25: Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos no longer have Tim Tebow, but they did pick up a fairly good free agent quarterback to ease the loss. I wonder if our mock drafter for the Broncos, j.katz, will go with some offense to help out the new QB or try and fortify their already solid defense...

And with the 25th pick in the WCG Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select...

Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

j.katz: The winners of Free Agency's biggest prize in Peyton Manning, most might think John Elway would look to protect his investment by surrounding him with more playmakers. However, no one makes receivers look better than Peyton. While TE Coby Fleener might make sense here to open up the middle of the field and allow room for Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Eddie Royal to work with; the Broncos quietly brought in Jacob Tamme an old target from Peyton's Colts days.

The best way for Elway to look good in front of the fan base is to win. The Broncos last year ranked 22nd against the run and after losing both of their starting Defensive Tackles (Broderick Bunkley to the Saints and Marcus Thomas is still unsigned) they need to bulk up at the position. Brockers is a big boy and will clog up the lane and can split the Guard Center gap, attracting double teams and freeing Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller to wreak havoc on the edges. Coach Fox has a history of developing linemen with Julius Peppers, Charles Johnson. Look for the Broncos to look to shore up their defense before adding to Peyton's arsenal.
