2012 NFL Draft: 3 Defensive Tackles Denver Broncos Could Select in 1st Round

The Denver Broncos are likely to use their first-round draft pick on the defensive side of the ball.

Since my first musings as to whom the Broncos might use their draft picks on at the end of February, there have been a lot of changes to the Denver Broncos.

Peyton Manning has been welcomed in as the Broncos starting quarterback for 2012, and Tim Tebow has been shipped off to New York.

One of the best prospects for the Broncos at defensive tackle this season, free agent Brodrick Bunkley, was swept up by the New Orleans Saints. The Broncos have Ty Warren returning and hope he can be a major contributor in the middle.

However, coming off a season-ending triceps injury during training camp last year, Warren is 31 years old and may never be the same defender that the Broncos were hoping to get last year after signing him in free agency.

Because of the obvious hole in the middle, the Broncos must use their first draft pick on a defensive tackle.

Here are the top three candidates for the Broncos' first pick.
