    I've always like the guy. He is the same athletic type as Arrington, and any and every team would kill to have that LB. He is big enough with experience to play MLB and is a VERY good tackler. He is also athletic and fast enough to play OLB. He is also athletic enough to be considered a DE. He is a beast like Arrington, and that is his only compaison. He will dominate if he keeps his current "work my ass of to prove people wrong" attitude. Personally, I would throw down a third rounder for him. A top 10 talent at that price. Let him sit a year, work out, learn, mature, learn, mature, diet, learn...next year he owns all. He will be the most dominant LB from this class if he gets his chance. In 3 years, everyone needs to remember I called this now. I actually called this over a year ago, but I am calling it again now.

    This kid is a beast. My biggest concern isnt so much his character, but his overall physical shape. I've heard he got fat and is now still about 5 - 10 over playing weight, and is now throwing stuff out there like he'll run a 4.5 40. Didnt Mike Williams say the same thing about running under a 4.5? Id like to see him do it, but no way in hell Brooks runs a 4.5, Ill say 4.6 - 4.7.

    You dont know brooks then. He is a very fast guy. At 260 he returned kicks for Virginia. He may only run a 4.6 at his pro-day, but that is fast for a big LB, and he will be faster by the time he plays.

    As of now the supplemental draft will take place on July 13th, but I think it can be changed.

    I hope he does prove me wrong, but this guy has so much going against him right now. Think about it; he got kicked off his team, dealt with injuries, and was out of shape for some time. Honestly, if he can get past all this, he will be a beast in the 3-4 or SLB in the 4-3. I too wouldnt mind spending a 3rd trying to get him (allthough a team like SF will most likely spend a 2nd), but he's got 3 huge hurdles to clear 1st. If he porves me wrong at his pro day then Ill retract my statement, but too many times Ive heard players saying "I'm gonna run this fast" or "I'm gonna do this" and end up looking like a fool for coming up short. Best of luck to him at his pro day.

    I am curious here and I know there will be suprises.. is the 2007 draft (seniors) going to be considered a deep draft? forgive my ignorance but I am not to savy on college football as a whole.

    what i am getting at is it seemed 2006 was a deep draft and if 2007 isn't a deep draft why wouldn't a 2nd be worth it? if it is a deep draft..why wouldn't a 3rd be worth it?

    It's not a deep draft at all if you are only taking seniors into the equation. However, with Juniors who will probably declare(Peterson, Baker, Lynch, C.Johnson, Jarrett...I could go on and on) the draft would be deep at least in the top end.

    thanks black bear... if that is this case why wouldn't we take a chance on a 2nd rounder?

    Ehhhh, I'm not a fan of his at all. I'd go no earlier than a 3rd.

    The draft is setting itself up to be like this years first round. The draft is stacked at the top, especially if you include the juniors. Not all of them will declare, but most will. The WR's and QB's will be the main attraction with the likes of Quinn, Stanton, Palmer, Bohmar and some headturning WR's in C. Johnson, Jarrett, Rice, Ginn Jr. The RB's should make a nice showing as well with Peterson, Bush (Michael), and Lynch. The draft is stacked if the Juniors enter, but it is not a deep one. Brooks would still go in the top 20 picks with a stacked draft, so to me he is worth a second or third rounder next year.

    Well if the Carr/Kubes deal is a bust, don't come crying if you need the pick
    to move up and you can't do it. Give your ammo away a year befor you need it you better be pretty darn sure. Some of you are sold, I'll take mine with a grain of salt. Just thinking back to the various Bronco MLBs. Don't recall any beast in the middle. Might work out. GL.

    They don't really care about there picks that much so I wouldn't be suprised. They only had I think about 3 picks in this year's draft and if they think Ahmad Brooks can be of assistance to there team then they will make a full run at him and not take any chances of not getting him. If a team's going to use a first round pick, I would've guessed the Redskins too.
