The potential trade target at 10.


We all know that even if the Bills want to trade down, they need a partner to do so. I think they will because of one target: Michael Brockers.

I love the guy and think he should be talked about as the 7th-blue chip prospect in the draft. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was selected before the Bills are on the clock but if he’s there I think he is the Bills’s ticket out.

The knock on him I keep hearing is he is “raw” and “undeveloped.” It’s true- but that’s the scary part – he’ll already come into the NFL ready to contribute. He was already a huge part of LSU’s dominant defense last year. LSU coach Les Miles called Brockers “a bear to handle inside”. The SEC agreed - he was double-teamed consistently last year (included by Georgia despite having a very good center in Ben Jones).

He’s got size, strength (the rumor he only benched 225 19 times at the combine isn’t true), a great initial burst, and is instinctive. Technically, he keeps his pad level low, understands leverage and anchors. What all this means is I don’t think there should be any question that he’ll contribute immediately as a run defender. He still has room to grow as a pass rusher, but with his quick initial bust to penetrate gaps and strength to bulrush show he’s oozing with potential as a pass-rusher once he refines his technique.

He can play a variety of techniques and in a one-gap or two-gap scheme so there will be a variety of suitors. I was able to find confirmed visits to the following teams:

Jaguars – 7

Dolphins – 8

Panthers – 9

Chiefs – 11

Cowboys – 14

Eagles – 15

Jets – 16

Titans – 20

Browns – 22

I’d be shocked if he made it past the Eagles at pick 15 on April 26th… not everyone will agree of course – but Brockers is the type of prospect that I think a few teams will fall in love with and would be willing to move up to make sure they get.
