After trading out of round one, here is my list of the top prospects for the Denver Broncos to consider in Round 2. They draft 36th overall, or fourth in the second round. This means at least four of these players will be available for them to draft with their first pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.
I’ve read dozens of scouting reports and watched tape while considering the fit for the Broncos in compiling this list. If they can get any of the top three players on this list, I’ll be happy.
Top Broncos Prospects Remaining
- Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin – Many had him in the mid-first round. The Broncos have 18 million reasons to invest in a premiere offensive lineman this season.
- Devon Still, DT, Penn State – I’ve gone back and forth between Still and Jerel Worthy, but Still has been more productive and has better measurables. He moved up my board and will stay that way.
- Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State – A bit shorter but perhaps meaner, the Broncos can’t go wrong with either Worthy or Still. Each, separately, has been called “the safest pick in the draft” among DT’s by experts.
- Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford – Like Konz, this would be a value pick. The need isn’t there with the Broncos having paid Jacob Tamme $4 million, but the BPA philosophy dictates you take a potential game-changer and Pro Bowler anyway.
- Lamar Miller, RB, Miami – There’s a lot of talk on Twitter that the Broncos are high on this guy. He has track and field speed and could prove to be a weapon. Good returner too.
- Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama – Character concerns and red flags galore, but an utter stud otherwise.
- Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech – A one-trick deep-route pony, but exceptionally good at that.
