2012 NFL Mock Draft: Michael Brockers Goes To Cowboys, According To MTD

In SB Nation's NFL draft blog, Mocking the Draft's, latest mock draft, the Dallas Cowboys stick with the recent trend, selecting LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers with their No. 14 overall pick.

Michael Brockers | Defensive tackle | LSU: A player with the versatility of Michael Brockers would do wonders for Dallas on the defensive line. They could use an upgrade at defensive end in their 3-4 defense, and Brockers fits wonderfully into that position at the next level.

Brockers has been a popular pick for the Cowboys in recent mock drafts. Since they've picked up a decent amount of players, like cornerback Brandon Carr and guards like Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau, the Cowboys may feel that they're in the position to draft the best player available instead of drafting for need when they go on the clock with the 14th overall pick.

Brockers is considered a top-three defensive lineman in this year's draft class along with guys like Fletcher Cox from Mississippi State and Dontari Poe from Memphis, and he could likely contribute right away on the Dallas defensive line.
