Schrager thinks Brockers raw skills would be harnessed by Denver's coaching staff and that he'd fit in well with the talent on hand:

25. Denver Broncos: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU: Brockers may be the biggest question mark in the Draft, with some pundits giving him top-10 love and others saying he’ll slip to the second round. Why? Because he’s incredibly raw. Just a redshirt sophomore, he has the size and the speed to be a beast at the next level. He just needs a little time and coaching. Put him on a defense that includes guys like Champ Bailey, Von Miller, D.J. Williams, and Elvis Dumervil, have John Fox coach him up, and I think he’s a can’t miss for Denver.

Brockers recorded 54 tackles in 2011, including 10 tackles for loss. He also forced a fumble and picked off a pass.
