Scouting Report
Brockers may be one of the more raw talents in the upcoming draft, though that hasn't been an issue as his stock continues to rise. The standout LSU defensive tackle played only one season before declaring after his redshirt sophomore season, but that seems to be enough to have impressed NFL teams hoping he falls to them on draft day. Brockers' size makes him an NFL-ready interior lineman that should help him provide immediate contributions against the opposition's running game. His natural athleticism gives him the ability to bounce off blocks and chase down the ball carrier no matter the direction of the play. Brockers depends heavily on his natural ability given his inexperience and as-yet-to-be-honed raw skills. He relies on strength and instincts against the run, but he needs to develop his game against the pass. He can be slow off the ball, preventing him from getting into the backfield against skilled offensive linemen. That delayed reaction takes away his strength and allows him to be pushed around quickly if he's unable to snuff out the play immediately. Despite any weaknesses, Brockers has loads of potential, and NFL teams are hoping some fine-tuning will make him a standout for many years. He'll likely be selected near the bottom of the first round.
