Default Peter King's Mock Draft 2012

http://cnnsi.printthis.clickability....7390/index.htm

25 BRONCOS

WILL PICK

Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

SHOULD PICK

Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

Denver will be stunned that Brockers is still on the board. And delighted. The Broncos lost free-agent defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley to the Saints a month ago, and this raw but promising 6'5" 322-pounder could play nose or a more versatile tackle role. "On potential," one coach told me, "Brockers deserves to be a top 10 pick."

Brockers also has the highest BUST potential.
If hes sooo freakin good, and a top 10, slam dunk pick,
why is hes still there at #25?

Because we had McDaniels for almost 2 years in Denver and now God thinks he owes us one....

That'd be cool but that might be the worst mock draft I've ever read in its entirety lol

I'm not a fan of Brockers at all. He falls into the "look like Tarzan, play like Jane" category for me.

He's a physical freak, but his play on the field isn't anywhere near as impressive as his measurables. If he's there @ 25 it will be because 24 teams trust what they saw on tape, and didn't over rely on what he looked like at the combine.

His combine and pro day were bad, his game tape is good, not to mention he was only a sophomore. My eyes must be bad, because he sure didn't play like Jane, he has great game tape.

He's only a sophomore with limited experience.
He did not perform well at the Combine or his pro day.
What his game tape shows is a freak, that brings the uncertainty.

His pro day was decent, certainly an improvement over his combine results.

Brockers is all about upside, he is a physical freak with all the tangibles you want, he has limited experience which means he may have a really high ceiling with good coaching.

Hey bro it sounds like you are supporting me and quoted the wrong person, because I want him to be the pick @25.

Brockers would be a steal at 25. We have the coaching to knock it out of the park.

I sure as hell wouldn't have a problem at all with Brockers even though he's young and probably will take some time to get his legs in the NFL. The upside is tremendous.

It was more your statement that his pro day and combine were bad, his pro day really wasn't bad at all.

I dont think there's a chance he'll be there at 25. You can watch his BCS champ game highlights vs Alabama on you tube...contrast that to Jerel Worthy's game film vs WI...

If he's there at 25, I'd grab him and not look back.

Yeah.. I am not to sure the Broncos want to draft on 'Potential'.. the Broncos have a win now attitude, so whoever they draft at #25 better contribute as a starter, not a part time player, or a special teams player... but a starter.

I'd love to have Brockers. But for different reasons. I don't see him ever getting 8-10 sacks a season kind of a guy. I see him being a run stuffer . If he did that for us, I'd be happy. Unfortunately most people would consider that as a bust.

I'm talking purely about his physical frame. His game tape does not show a freak, and his poor performances show another likely red flag that he'll never perform to the level of his Tarzan build.

I'd rather have Devon Still - still the best 3-tech guy out there outside Cox. Not sure why he's gone from top 20 on most experts boards to around 40, but my DT rankings still go:

1. Cox
2. Still
3. Brockers
4. Poe (bust, huge potential he won't reach)

If you're looking for a run stuffer you're far better off with Worthy or Thompson. Brockers gets moved around all the time.

I'm guessing you forget that any and ALL DL types are part timers in DEN at altitude, for all the whiners that pissed and moaned about bunkley only playing 43% of the time..

Few if any DL types play more than 50% at mile high..

SO even if he is a starter you may only get a few plays in each possession.. hopefully because it was 3 and out.. If not then probably will not play more than two sets of firsts down without being rested..
