OMG I will vomit if we take Brockers in the 1'st.
He was supposed to be 305 and run a 4.9. He shows up at 325 and ran a 5.3
***??? He had two sacks last year! I think he might be a great run stuffing DT in a 4-3. If you want SACKS you are not making him into a 3-4 end that is running a mid 5.3 40. He sucked in almost every friggin drill at the combine. What the hell are we going to do with him? Fatten him up to 350 lbs and try and make a 6'5" nose tackle out of him and pray a lot?
I can list a DOZEN people still on the board I would take over Brockers at 14. Why anyone thinks he is a fit here is just crazy.
Here is a typical Brockers summary "Brockers was clocked at an alarmingly slow 5.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash. This time was the third worst among the 49
defensive linemen tested in Indianapolis this year. The only two defensive linemen with a time more than a hundredth of a second slower than Brockers were Missouri's Dominique Hamilton
and Southern Cal's Christian Tupou
. As a point of comparison, Brockers is currently rated as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 8 rated prospect overall
. Hamilton and Tupou are rated 360th and 378th
Think the 40-yard dash time is an anomoly? Think again. Brockers finished among the worst in defensive linemen tested in the vertical jump (26.5"), broad jump (105") and short shuttle (4.81), as well.
Brockers elected to leave LSU with two years of college eligibility remaining. While his statistics were less than jaw-dropping (47 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, two sacks)"
