According to Aaron Wilson of, the Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to host LSU defensive lineman Michael Brockers on Friday (FYI, the only Pro Day on April 6, 2012 is McNeese State so this date may stick). Brockers is generally considered one of the top two defensive tackles by most draft experts.

Todd McShay ranks Brockers as the 13th-best prospect, writing (In$ider):

Brockers has the size and power to dominate the point of attack; he also has upside as a pass-rusher and plenty of overall potential.

Scout, Inc. lists him as the second-best defensive tackle prospect, giving him an exceptional grade against the run with above average quickness and toughness. Brocker originally was recruited to LSU as a strong-side linebacker, but gained considerable weight to fill out his 6-6 frame. National Football Post lists him as the top defensive tackle prospect.

Brockers has already visited with the New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins and the Tennessee Titans, while also meeting with the Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs. More teams are expected to meet with the defensive tackle.
