    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.
    ACTUALLY....the LAST guy we took a chance on who had substance abuse problems is Koren Robinson...and look at how HE turned out!

    So, I would suggest that the Vikings SERIOUSLY consider taking Brooks with their second pick...if he is still there, that is!

    Think about it...if either EJ or DT wash out, they will have been a waste of a second pick as well...so why not give Brooks a shot!

    PLUS we NEED a STUD in the middle of our defense...so far, no one has stepped up and proven that they are the answer at Mike...let's step it up a notch by adding Brooks to the mix!!!

    Ahmed Brooks could = the next Derrick Brooks :grin:
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Worth a supplemental if he's willing to "get right". Does anyone know his measurables? Looks like he plays very fast.

    Re: Ahmad Brooks

    Im all for it.. There aren't too many supplemental draft picks that really make it anyway.. I know there are some good ones though

    Ahmad Brooks would be a good pick up

    Position: ILB Number: 34
    School: Virginia Height: 6'4
    Status: Junior Weight: 249

    * This is a player at the inside linebacker position that is a absolute terror
    * He has the type of size, speed and agility combination you look for at the position, he somewhat resembles current NFL linebacker "Ray Lewis", but he is a both taller and bigger and he is similar in his approach to the game, he has a fire and intensity that is rare getting to the ball carrier, he is a no nonsense type of player that once he arrives to the ball he explodes through the tackle and gives no extra yards after contact
    * He is the type of player that flings his body all around the field unconsciously, gives relentless effort on every play, along with a motor that is restless, his pursuit to the ball is unmatched, and is a very instinctive player as well, he is quite often used in blitz packages for his teams defense, and is pretty effective at collapsing the pocket
    * This is the type of player that does not except defeat, and will be a leader for any defense he competes on, he is the only player comparable to Ray Lewis I have ever seen, he is just bigger!

    unfortunately they typed except instead of accept, but still.

    Re: Ahmad Brooks

    I don't think we will take him and don't see any info on this guy being any good at coverage or being a guy with good work ethic to learn it.
