2012 NFL Mock Draft: Devon Still A Good Fit For Broncos

Devon Still had some pretty strong words for the assembled media at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis this weekend, claiming that he thought he was the best defensive tackle in the entire draft. That remains to be seen, but his spot on the board could fluctuate pretty strongly with his performance in the testing aspects of the Combine on Monday. SB Nation came out with a new 2012 NFL Mock Draft at the beginning of the weekend that has Still going to the Broncos with the No. 25 pick in the Draft, one slot after the Steelers.

Denver's defense was lights out in 2011, and adding Still will make an already tough interior defense even tougher. It could also adds some years onto the career of their outstanding young linebacker, Von Miller.

Still would be a good fit for a Broncos team that could still use some playmakers along the defensive line. And he would certainly enjoy the attention that Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil will receive along the outside, freeing him up to make plays. It would be a pretty good spot to work on backing up his claim.
