Michael Brockers came up with a big sack on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub. After he made the sack he got up and celebrated with a sack dance. It was part of what was arguably his best game in his professional career.

Brockers finished the game leading the Rams in solo tackles with seven, sacks with two, and tackles for loss with three. It was an all-around dominating performance by the second year defensive tackle out of LSU.
Brockers did not stay at LSU for long before he decided to go pro. Brockers was redshirted in 2009 as a true freshman. In 2010 he played well in mostly backup minutes, but did start in the win against Alabama. His sophomore year he stepped it up. He started in every game for the Tigers and was named to the Second Team All-SEC squad. Brockers helped lead the Tigers to a SEC Championship and a berth in the National Championship Game.
After just two seasons on the field for the Tigers, Brockers surprisingly declared for the NFL Draft. With the 14th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft Brockers was selected by the St. Louis Rams.
Brockers played pretty well in his rookie season. He played in 13 games and had 31 total tackles, four sacks, and a forced fumble.
This season he is much improved. He has played in all six of the Rams games and is sixth on the team with 20 tackles, and second in sacks with3.5. His sacks total is enough for 27th best in the NFL this season.
Brockers is extremely talented, but is still young. He will continue to improve as he gains experience. Expect Brockers to be one of the top defensive linemen in the NFL in the upcoming years.
