The Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock Draft rolls along, with the No. 15 overall pick coming at you right now...
With the No. 15 overall pick in the BR Community Mock Draft, 'MarinoTheBill' and the Philadelphia Eagles select LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers.
"For the Eagles to acquire a player with the upside of Brockers at No. 15 makes this the obvious pick," begins MarinoTheBill.
More from the GM after the jump. The New York Jets and GM 'kfisk214' are now on the clock; remember to send your picks to email@example.com.
"Dan Kadar at MockingTheDraft.com puts it best when he says the following," continues the GM:
In the 2012 NFL Draft, few players carry as much potential and upside as Brockers, a redshirt sophomore. On a loaded LSU defensive line, Brockers routinely stood out and should transition well to the NFL. At 6-foot-6, Brockers has an impressive frame with a lot of room to grow. Because of his relative inexperience (one season as a full-time starter), he'll need to get drafted on a team that can rotate him in while he develops.
"The Eagles have players at tackle (Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson) that will allow Brockers to become part of a rotation, so he does not have to carry the load from day one," concludes MarinoTheBill. "Some may consider Brockers to be a one-year wonder, but with the 15th overall pick, the potential is too good to pass up."
