NFL Mock Draft 2012: Baylor's Kendall Wright Heads To Broncos

The Baylor Bears are going to have a monopoly of sorts on the attention of the 2012 NFL Draft -- or at least the first round. The tandem of Robert Griffin III and Kendall Wright not only connected all season long in college football, but both will be popular subjects by the talking heads when both are likely named among the top players selected. Wright is headed to the Denver Broncos at No. 25 in SB Nation's latest mock draft:

Wright's Combine and pro day had some wondering about his first-round talent, all because of his 40 time. Foolishness. Wright can get down the field and has the explosiveness to get away from defenders. Peyton Manning could make him a household name this season.

The Broncos already have Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, so adding Wright is not as big of a need here as other positions. It's more likely the team will select defensive tackle if someone is available, but Wright is still a good get for any offense and Peyton would get the most out of him.
