Default Brockers Didn't Even Bench at the Combine?

http://www.rookiedraft.com/?p=5701

Quote:
While the folks in Indianapolis usually do a bang up job of collecting data and test results for the NFL Combine, there are more than a few issues arising from the workout results of LSU defensive lineman Michael Brockers.

I have it from Michael Brockers’ agency that he did not even participate in the bench press drill portion of the NFL combine, meanwhile national scouting verified that Brockers opted to not lift in the event but nfl.com mistakenly posted a result of “19 reps” for the LSU Tiger.

What is also being disputed is Brockers forty yard dash, which was posted as a 5.36 while 3 teams reportedly clocked him in the 5.08-5.19 range in the event.

One more puzzling aspect of this particular prospect’s posted information is the fact that Michael Brockers has never measured in at less than 6′5″˝ and he was somehow registered at a posted 6050 or 6′5″ even. Something that is certain to be dispelled at LSU’s pro day on the 22nd of March.

It really makes you wonder how “official” these official combine results are and whether or not some NFL teams are able to adjust results as they see fit. One thing is for sure, you need to trust what you see in the actual games and the only official times NFL teams trust is the time on their own stop watch.
Is this true?

That would be a big time duff by the combine people if true. I have a hard time believing they could screw up so big, especially on a top prospect.

I'm pretty sure that the actual data package provided by National Scouting will have the accurate information.

The thing about the bench should be easy to verify, don't they film that? Someone should watch the film and see if Brockers makes an appearance.

If true this will be very surprising. Brockers stock has took a slight hit with Poe/Cox both rising, but if he has different combine numbers his stock go regain some of it's status

If he threw up 225 19 times while being fifteen feet from the bench, to me that makes him a once in a lifetime prospect. It would be like having the black Jean Grey on your team without the extreme PMS.

Couple different people reporting it. So, unless his agent is just outright lying, may be true...

If Brockers actually put(s) up 30 + reps he should see his stock near the top 10 again. I hope his height and weight were right though, he has very good size and untouched potential.

I'm sure it's true. This would be the dumbest thing to lie about ever.

That's why I take NFLN's unofficial 40 times as fairly accurate numbers and quote them instead when there's a huge discrepancy between the combine's 'adjusted' 40 times and the time seen on TV for a player.

How the F do you misquote a BP number if that prospect DIDN'T BENCH???lol

All of the official sources say one thing, and his agent says something else. I tend to believe the official sources.
If Brockers didn't lift at the combine, it wouldn't be caught a week or ten days later. His agent would have been on NFL.coms butt from the minute they posted the info.
Can't do anything about his size, but the people who have measured him in the past have been from the team, or his agent. Once again, the bigger he is, the more imposing he looks.
And anyone can screw up a 40 time. If 29 teams and the official score have him in the 4.3 to 4.4 range, and 3 have him in the 4.1 to 4.2 range, I tend to believe that the 2 or 3 screwed up, easy to do with hand timing, especially when you're going on movement, not on sound.
Sounds like the beginnings of a rescue campaign for Brocker's draft postition, put out by his agent. He has a chance to prove himself on his pro day.

I was promised an interview with Brockers after the Scouting Combine but they have shut him down as he preps for his Pro Day. Seems like there is a little bit of concern in that camp...

the problem with Brockers is that the workout was all he had going for him. The guy has 2 career sacks at LSU. He played basically 1 year regularly. it's all potential with him.

The workout was the only real motivation for any1 to take him at high to mid 1st round prices. a good workout wouldn't be good enough. It needed to be amazing (like Poe's workout)

I still think he will fit into the late 1st area, he's got a good set of skills. Are they fantastic? We shall see.
