LSU’s Brockers generates buzz at Combine weigh-in


LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers’ college career was lacking in production, but he’s got the physical-build part down. During Saturday’s Combine weigh-in for defensive linemen, Brockers measured in at 6-foot-5 and 322 pounds with 35-inch arms, according to’s Marc Sessler.

Per Sessler, Brockers’ weigh-in “caused a stir.” His wingspan is a mammoth 83 7/8 inches.

Brockers declared for the draft as a redshirt sophomore after starting only 15 games in Baton Rouge. He collected 11 career tackles for loss, two sacks, and two forced fumbles and was a second-team All-SEC selection in 2011.

Projected as a top-ten overall pick in some circles, Brockers will be drafted based much more on long-term upside than college resume.
