Michael Brockers, LSU
Right now, this is a race between Brockers and Devon Still. I don’t think that Dontari Poe can succeed in the NFL. He is crazy athletic but nothing more than a workout warrior. At Memphis, he never went up against elite competition.
I hope Poe proves me wrong, but right now I can’t make him No. 1 here.
As for the best defensive tackle, the former Tiger has the edge.
Brockers was disruptive this year, totaling 54 tackles with 10 tackles for a loss, two sacks, a forced fumble and even a blocked kick.
This 6'5", 306-pound giant has an unmatched balance between size and strength.
The only knock against him is that Brockers is a sophomore. But his fountain of youth makes his ceiling nonexistent. This season Brockers played well beyond his years and can keep that level of intensity throughout his NFL career.
On the Radar: Devon Still, Penn State
