ESPN Dallas’ Todd Archer reports there is a “good chance” the Cowboys will make LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers the 14th overall pick in tonight’s draft.
Brockers was a defensive tackle in LSU’s 4-3 scheme. He would play defensive end in Dallas’ 3-4.
The Cowboys entered this week eyeballing Alabama safety Mark Barron at No. 14, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that Barron won’t make it to the 14th pick, and ESPN’s Ed Werder took it a step further Thursday morning, reporting that the Cowboys “understand” Barron is no longer an option for them, barring a trade up.
Brockers is known to be one of Dallas’ preferred fallback options behind Barron. His addition could spell the end of former first-round pick Marcus Spears’ disappointing tenure with the Cowboys.
