    Ahmad Brooks

    I no I might get bashed for this.... but how many of you guys would want us to take a chance on MLB Ahmad Brooks from Virginia. He had character issues that got him kicked out of UVA, but scouts say that had he came out this year, he would have been a top 5 draft pick due to his body of work, pure football instincts, altleticism and speed. I for one would be ecstatic if we could get this guy. IF he can get his act together, he could be the next ray lewis. (BTW, thats who scouts have compared him to!)

    P.S. Ray Edwards was a character issue that we gambled on, so I think it is not totally out of the question.

    Was he chipping golf balls in the bathroom while someone was being murdered too?

    Man i mean on the field, come on! You can't deny Ray-Rays talent. Ahmad Brooks' main issue was substance abuse. If he has that cleared up, why not take a chance on him!

    I've never heard of Ahmad Brooks. Anyone have a link for some film on this guy? Until then I can't make a fair judgement of the man.

    He is entering the supplemental draft, correct? If so, I would be happy if we picked him, he was a monster on the field when I saw him play, just an athletic monster.

    He seems like a can't-miss prospect in the 2nd round of the supplemental, but so did Tony Hollings.

    Thanks for the Vid Carta4eva. There wasn't much there but from the few plays I seen he looks quick and powerful. Let's get him.

    Re: Ahmad Brooks

    But you have to look at the last guy we took a chance on who had substance abuse problems. Onterio was a great talent but he couldnt overcome the off field problems. But brooks wouldnt be high risk or anything, just pointing out what happend last time.
