Brockers is reportedly falling from interviews and is seen as only a run down player.
According to Mayock Poe is not just a workout warrior, he said if you put on the tape he was the Memphis Dline. He also said he's a top 10 guy
We're going to get a player at 14. Brockers isn't high on my list, but you can't be too bummed if he ends up dropping and our scouts like him. He was a consensus top-10 pick not too long ago.
It's worth noting that Mayock had Poe in his Top 5 DT's as as far back as January.
A lot of people are acting like Poe just showed up out of nowhere yet he was considered a first rounder before the combine.
yep I agree, I do not want Brockers.
Cox is the only 3-4 DE I want at 14.
Any links on this.
Mayock, Kiper, McShay, Bunting... all have Dallas doing different things and all have DeCastro falling past us.
I'd really dislike Barron at 14 but can live with any of the other picks. Brockers and Poe are both good football players that weigh well over 300 pounds. It is hilarious to me that people actually post about the 40 time of a 325 pound guy like it is a huge concern.
It IS a huge concern if you need a pressure player off the edge. He finished at the BOTTOM of literally every test except height/weight.
You combine that with TWO friggin sacks last year and you would have to be pretty slow not to see thats a problem if you want a 3-4 end that can get a little pressure on the quarterback. I just no longer view him as anything but a 4-3 DT. He may be stout at that but thats NOT what we need.
He is to tall to be a prototypical NT even if he added another 25 lbs and to slow to be an end. the guy has zero history of being able to get to the quarterback. His entire rating was based on "potential" as no one knew what he was going to run. Well he ran like a friggin turtle. If all your drafting a guy on is potential I dont want a body builder guy that was just terrible at every friggin drill he ran and had TWO sacks last year. If I am drafting potential for a 3-4 I was a super fast guy that may need to add 10 to 15 lbs. You cant teach fast. You have it or you dont and Brockers doesnt.
That matches what I mentioned earlier in this thread, though your comment has more bite.
Ugh, Spears 2.0
the guy coming out so early, before prooving himself in college. he obviously wants a payday and is cruising on his measurables.
I'd say Spears is better. At least he was productive in college and was a leader on that team.
Brockers at 14? No thanks.
Brockers would be awful at 14.. would much rather have Poe or Cox.
Poe is more than a workout warrior.. and Brockers is neither a workout warrior nor a productive football player. We'd be silly to pass on DeCastro for him.
Side note.. this mock stinks.

LSU DL Michael Brockers is visiting the Carolina Panthers tonight, a dinner meeting with the coaches and tomorrow with personnel at facility
Maybe Carolina removes the temptation
I personally think Brockers is the bust of the draft. Woe onto the team that drafts him.
(based on me actually seeing him play and not coming away impressed. He didn't even shine at the combine, where he was supposed to blow everyone away with his mystical athletic ability. It didn't happen).
