Lost in the Peyton Manning circus is the fact that Denver's defense still needs a little help. Still adds some strength to the middle of John Fox's four-man front. He also brings the ability to pressure quarterbacks from the middle, which should only help what was already a solid Denver pass rush thanks to last year's addition of Von Miller.
Still was originally expected to go within the top half of the first round but has fallen recently in many mock drafts. Factors for his slide include concerns about his consistency and increased competition from underclassmen who have foregone eligibility to join the NFL Draft player pool, according to the NFL Network's Mike Mayock.
