NFL Draft 2012, Devon Still: Former Penn State DT In First Round Conversation

With just a week before the start of the 2012 NFL draft, mock drafts are all the rage. (Although they sort of are throughout the entire year, too).

Former Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still figures to hear his name called early on in the proceedings, at least according to Wes Bunting's latest projection over at National Football Post, where he has Still headed to the new land of Peyton at pick 25.

Bunting on Still-to-Denver:

He's not the most dynamic of pass rushers. However, he's a big, strong kid with a good get off, long set of arms and knows how to play the run. He's a potential anchor inside who can push the pocket and give the Broncos a guy they can win with inside.

Based off of Bunting's take and other credible sources around the mock draft world, Still should end up somewhere in the range of the late first or early second round.

Regardless of when his name is called, Still will enjoy the unique opportunity of greeting Commissioner Roger Goodell, as he is one of 26 confirmed attendees of the draft.
