2012 NFL Mock Draft: Philadelphia Eagles Are Linked To Michael Brockers

In the latest edition of SB Nation's NFL Mock Draft by Ryan Van Bibber, the Philadelphia Eagles are slated to take defensive tackle Michael Brockers of LSU with the 15th overall pick.

Brockers has been flying up draft boards recently and would certainly make a nice pick for Andy Reid and the boys.

The Eagles could use some help on the interior of their defensive line. The defense struggled to get push up the middle last year and had a hard time containing elite running attacks. With Brockers in the fold it will be easier to improve on both of those issues.

It'll be interesting to see how the board falls Thursday night. Philadelphia is smack dab in the middle of the round and could possibly move up or down depending on the circumstances. If Fletcher Cox is somehow still there, he could be the selection also.

The draft is loaded with defensive line prospects this year, so the Eagles will undoubtedly have their pick of the litter if they so choose.
