NFL Mock Draft 2012: SI's Final Mock Has Cowboys Picking Michael Brockers Over Barron, Poe

With the NFL Draft now only a day away, the final mock drafts from around the internet are pouring in. Over at SI.com, Don Banks makes his final picks, with the Dallas Cowboys taking LSU DL Michael Brockers at No. 14:

14DT Michael Brockers LSU Soph. 6-6 306 I feel strangely confident that Brockers, Mark Barron and Dontari Poe will be the next three players off the board in some order, but I can't quite decide the order. In the end, the Cowboys' need for a disruptive front seven player nudged me away from Barron, and while Dallas is said to love the potential-laden Poe, Brockers is more NFL-ready from day one.

Brockers visited the Cowboys training facility earlier in the month, but pre-draft speculation has centered mainly around Alabama SS Mark Barron and Stanford OG David DeCastro over the last few weeks.

Banks has DeCastro going to the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 11. He projects another Cowboys target, Fletcher Cox, a DT from Mississippi State who some believe is the best defensive front-seven pick in the draft, to go to the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 7.

He has three other players linked to Dallas -- Barron, DT Dontari Poe and CB Dre Kirkpatrick -- going right after Brockers, which could make the Cowboys more leery of trading down.
