2012 NFL Draft Results: LSU DT Michael Brockers Selected By St. Louis Rams With 14th Overall Pick

With the No. 12 overall pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have selected former LSU Tigers defensive tackle Michael Brockers. Brockers is the 21st-rated prospect in the draft and the second-ranked defensive tackle, according to Mocking The Draft's rankings.

Here's what Mocking the Draft had to say about Brockers prior to the draft:

Final word: In the 2012 NFL Draft, few players carry as much potential and upside as Brockers, a redshirt sophomore. On a loaded LSU defensive line, Brockers routinely stood out and should transition well to the NFL. At 6-foot-6, Brockers has an impressive frame with a lot of room to grow. Because of his relative inexperience (one season as a full-time starter), he'll need to get drafted on a team that can rotate him in while he develops.
