Why Brockers instead of Worthy

In our bloggers mock draft Monday, I had the AFC West picks looking like this: No. 11, Kansas City: Stanford guard David DeCastro; No. 18, San Diego: Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower; No. 25, Denver: Michigan State defensive tackle Jerel Worthy.

In my individual team mock drafts, posted earlier Thursday, DeCastro and Hightower remained the picks for Kansas City and San Diego. But my pick for Denver was not Worthy. It was LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers.


Brockers wasn’t available in our Monday mock. However, in the mock I did for Thursday’s post, I had Dallas (who was slotted for Brockers in Monday’s mock) passing on Brockers. If that is the case, I could see him falling to Denver.

If not, I think Worthy could easily be the pick. I just wanted to clarify the reasoning between the changes in the Denver choice from Monday.
