The Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock Draft rolls along, with the No. 25 overall pick coming at you right now...

With the No. 25 overall pick in the BR Community Mock Draft, 'TrufflePig' and the Denver Broncos select Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill.

"At a glimpse, this might look like a potential Super Bowl team," writes TrufflePig. "They made it to the divisional round of the playoffs last year, have a solid pass rush, can play tough defense, have two blue-chip offensive linemen and now have added Peyton Manning. But this team is littered with holes."

More from the GM after the jump. The Houston Texans and GM 'NJames' are now on the clock; remember to send your picks to buffalorumblings@gmail.com.

"I intended to focus on need because I think John Elway will be even more anxious to find immediate starters with Manning on board," continues TrufflePig. "Fortunately, they have quite a few holes to fill. The defense has a strong reputation thanks to a series of strong performances during the playoff push, but this is a unit that ranked 24th in scoring defense last year and allowed 40+ points five different times last season. I considered a few cornerbacks and several players at defensive tackle, where the departure of Brodrick Bunkley in free agency leaves zero starting caliber players. Unfortunately, I can’t get behind any corner or defensive tackle to provide an immediate upgrade, so I went with a sexier pick.

"The Broncos aren’t very deep at receiver - and you can’t have too many targets for Manning - so I decided to take a chance on the intriguing Hill," the GM concludes. "Hill is a physical specimen, running a 4.36-second 40-yard dash at 6’5" and 215 pounds. He’s got long legs and arms and has a huge catching radius. He’s a terrific runner after the catch and a great blocker in the run game. He has a unique skill set and will need some time to develop, but I like his chances of contributing immediately while playing with Manning, who will be able to utilize the mismatches his size and speed create."
