Scouting Report written by: Chad Davis
A relatively surprise entry into the NFL Draft, the redshirt sophomore Brockers has divided opinions on exactly where his draft stock should be. With prototypical size and length, Brockers intrigues people with his athletic ability, but his overall production and experience is fairly minimal. Will he turn into Richard Seymour or Kentwan Balmer? Lots of question marks surround this defensive tackle prospect. I expect Brockers to hear his name called in the top 20 picks.
Possesses the length and burst of the snap to develop into a good pass rusher. Good motor and effort in pursuit. Good lower-body strength. Can be a dominant run defender. Plays with great leverage. Uses length to keep defenders off his body. Long arms to disrupt passing lanes. Good lateral agility. Scheme versatile. Can play multiple d-line positions. Explosive tackler.
Lacks experience. Lacks upper-body strength (19 reps at combine). Unpolished in most aspects of his game. Not a true pass rusher at this point in his development. Struggles to hold his ground versus double-teams.
