    I think Brockers might be a little more athletic than Spears is/was. Also the good thing about Brockers is that he is still very young(just turned 21) and has time to grow. Both physically and skill wise. I cant say Im as high on him as a lot of people here are. Hes still a bit of a project that may not be ready to play his rookie year. If we were picking somewhere around 20 I would be all for him, but I think there are prospects with just as much potential who are ready now at 14. Just my 2 cents...

    Even though Spears weighs more, Brockers has a bigger frame, and is more suited to possibly play the NT, but he can also play NT. Despite what the scouting reports say, Brockers doesn't provide much as a pass rusher, but excels in stuffing the run with his overwhelming power. He may be a bit more athletic and agile than Spears is. Anyone that gets him will be drafting off of potential instead of production. I'm not a big fan of his early in the 1st round for this reason. The only scenario where I'd want him is if we trade down somehow and acquire multiple late-first round or very early second round picks.

    brockers compares more to red bryant to me. The kid can play as a big DE in a 4-3 that can rush the passer thinks to his quick first step and power for a big d-lineman. I think he will be a heck of a 3-4 DE if you have a good d-line coach. Brockers need technique work. He might not make an impact as a rookie but once he learns watch out.

    This is the best line of thinking that I have seen concerning Brockers .

    The real question is how does Brockers compare to JJ Watt. If the comparison is favorable, then MAYBE Brockers is in play but if not, then he shouldn't even be a consideration.
