NFL Draft Results: Dontari Poe, Quinton Coples Bookend Michael Brockers As Bust Candidates

Good news for St. Louis Rams fans after SB Nation's recent attempt to divine, through the 2012 NFL Draft results, just who's most likely to bust: It appears to be every defensive lineman but the one they chose, Michael Brockers. Dontari Poe, selected ahead of the Rams' first-rounder at No. 11 by the Kansas City Chiefs, gets Joel Thorman's pick, while Ryan Van Bibber chooses Quinton Coples, who went at No. 16 to the New York Jets. Brockers may have earned some less-than-stellar draft grades in terms of his ceiling, but it looks like his floor will allow him to avoid bust status—at least here before we've played any games...

Among Rams picks the most likely bust candidate seems like high-risk second-rounder Janoris Jenkins, who also happens to be their best breakout candidate. That kind of volatility, after all, is what you get when you have the chance to select a guy with Top 10 talent in the second round.
