Default I love this mock draft - it has us taking Raji at #12

But the guy who wrote this can stuff it up his a$$. His last comment is total BS. He must not have watched a single Broncos game this year. Frucking clown.

#12 It's not an exaggeration to suggest that the Broncos need help on all three levels of their defense. It looks like Mike Nolan will install his trademark 3-4 scheme and they should have plenty of enticing options here but Raji would be tough to pass up if he lasts this long. Everyone knows B.J. Raji | Boston College Eagles that the key to any good 3-4 defense is a stud nose tackle and neither Marcus Thomas or Dewayne Robertson are an ideal fit in that role. At 6-1 and 323 pounds some assume that B.J. Raji is just a big, run-stuffing nose tackle and while he certainly excels in that capacity he has also shown the ability to penetrate and make plays in the backfield, which is evidenced by his career totals of 29.5 TFL and 11.5 Sacks. After sitting out the 2007 season to get his grades in order Raji more than made up for lost time as a senior, coming through with a dominating final campaign for the Eagles and also earning rave reviews during the Senior Bowl week. Denver could also go with a defensive end (Tyson Jackson), an inside linebacker (Rey Maualuga) or an outside linebacker (Everette Brown / Brian Orakpo / Aaron Maybin) here. As a darkhorse keep an eye on Beanie Wells because the Broncos certainly don't have a stud running back on their roster

he's right we don't have a stud RB on the roster. Hillis is a maybe, but who knows how we will use him.
