Rams top pick Brockers still a Cowboys fan

While in New York for the NFL Draft in April, LSU defensive lineman Michael Brockers said he would always be a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Despite being selected by the St. Louis Rams, Brockers showed on Thursday that he is still supporting the Cowboys even when he signs a contract with another NFL team.

In a photo posted on the Rams' official Twitter feed, Brockers can be seen signing what appears to be his contract with a Cowboys key lanyard hanging out of his pocket.

"I grew up a major Cowboys' fan and still am and always will be," Brockers told the Star-Telegram in April. "I would love to play for the Cowboys. That would be a dream come true."

Many mock draft experts projected the Cowboys to select Brockers with the 14th overall pick. And while Brockers came off the board at No. 14, the Cowboys were no longer in possession of the pick, trading it to the Rams in exchange for the No. 6 overall selection, which was used to grab Brockers' college teammate, Morris Claiborne.
