    Ahmad Brooks, LB, is probably the biggest prospect going in the supplemental draft.

    I am not positive but I do not think our track record in this area is very good. Wasn't Tony Hollings a supplemental? I think we had one more but don't remember who.

    Is this who you are talking about:

    Ahmad Brooks LB Virginia 6’4 249 Soph

    Ahmad Brooks was one of the elite recruits in the country three years ago, and he may have already exceeded expectations in just two seasons of playing time. Brooks is draft eligible because he spent a year after high school at Hargrave Military Academy. During his freshman season, Brooks set a UVa freshman record with 117 tackles with 10 of them for loss, 4 sacks and 6 pass breakups. This season, as a sophomore, he has had another fine season, being named one of three finalists for the Butkus award. Brooks’ father, Perry, played for the Washington Redskins.

    Ahmad Brooks is a physical specimen. He’s got awesome size, he’s a great athlete, he’s fast, and he’s strong. You may not be able to create a better looking linebacker than Brooks. On the field, he can do it all. He can drop back into coverage, he can weed through traffic and stuff the run, and he can get up field after the passer. Brooks is very versatile on the field; having the ability to play inside or out, and possessing the size to be a 3rd down pass rusher on the line. He has even lined up as a kick returner, averaging 27.5 yards on 2 returns in 2004.

    There aren’t many negatives with Brooks. The obvious one is experience, as he has only played two seasons at the college level. Even that may be overrated, as he played at Hargrave for a year, and he has started every game he’s played in during his two years at Virginia.

    Ahmad Brooks is a great prospect, whenever he declares. He should be a Top 20 pick if he declares this year. With his size, athleticism, and versatility, it’s hard to not see Brian Urlacher. Brooks is that type of talent, and he’s going to be an excellent NFL linebacker.

    That's too high, I that we might be able to give a third but if his bid is a second rounder by a different team then I don't see us getting him.

    I would use a second. The Texans do not really have a true MLB.

    I can't really fault the texans on that pick before he got hurt Tony Hollings was one of the best running back prospects in college

    hollings was a backup defensive back his first 2 years, and only played 4 games in college as a running back.

    I agree. This kid would have been a top 15 pick next year. I would not mind giving up a second..

    I would probably not go any higher than a 3rd and that would be only if he interviewed real well with us. I've read numerous reports about this guy being a headcase. Remember before you start demanding we throw in a first round pick...he got kicked off his team for a reason.

    There's no doubt that our defense would look AMAZING with him if he got his head on straight.

    Williams-Johnson-Smith-Weaver

    Greenwood-Brooks-Ryans

    That's a nasty front 7 :drool:

    He sounds like he could be a great linebacker, but he was kicked of Virginia's team after testing positive for an illegal substance multiple times. Brooks and his people are saying it could have been second hand smoke, so it is obviously Mary Jane. He tested positive at least twice with Virginia officials within in the past few months and was booted off the team for an "off-field incident".
    He is a great player, that I still think we should look at. But we need to be careful.

    That is the whole problem. I don't see us looking at someone with any attitude problems or a history of having them. I would like him on our team a lot as long as we don't give up a first round pick.

    Is there a link on this? Being a headcase is allot different than being a wacky weed smoker. If he has a drug problem, then it going to affect his career in ways that allot of teams will not even look at him. If he is just a headcase, say like Vick, then oh my......:hunter:

    What I was meaning is that I was hoping that someone could provide a link or wedsite that talked about all the canaidates that were coming into this years supplemental draft.

    I agree.. depends on the interview. I mean warren sapp was busted and straightened himself out , so to speak.. yet it IS a case by case scenario


    if he interviews good..2nd round and I have no problem , because I don't think he'd be around if he came out next season ,when our 2nd round pick came up

    lets not forget kubiak was on the same team that wasted a 3rd round pick on maurice clarett. id say theres a slim chance of it happening but he is very talented by all accounts and it is a definite need for our team...
