    8. DT Michael Brockers
    LSU, 6-5, 306 pounds
    As a third-year sophomore last season, Brockers became a leader by example on one of the most talented defenses in the country. He was named second-team All-SEC in 2011. He totaled 54 tackles, 10 for a loss, two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. Brockers played best in big games, evidenced by a career-high seven stops and blocked field goal against Alabama in the BCS Championship game. He arrived at LSU as a 250-pound defensive end but by the beginning of last season coach Les Miles predicted the he would be a "bear to handle inside." Although he had the luxury of being surrounded by a lot of talent, scouts still noticed that Brockers has the strength, length and motor to play in the NFL.

    9. OG David DeCastro
    Stanford, 6-5, 312 pounds
    Stanford's pro-style offense has prepared DeCastro to plug-and-play in somebody's NFL line. He is one reason why Stanford averaged more than 200 yards rushing a game for the last two years and he is easily the top guard prospect in this draft. DeCastro plays with a solid base, necessary aggression and knows how to use his hands to control defenders. His mobility is especially impressive when he pulls and leads through the hole. He also uses those quick feet and great body balance to mirror pass rushers effectively. DeCastro, a finalist for the Outland Trophy as top offensive lineman in the country, is regaled by teammates for his non-stop work ethic both in the weight room and in practice.

    I'm still suprised at how high most analyst rate Brockers.
