Re: Ahmed Brooks in the supplemental draft?

Yeah, but comparing Ahmad Brooks to a guy that had sex with underage girls, held up someone at gunpoint and deliberately tried to inflict injury to opposing players might be a little harsh, don't you think?

We don't even know the extent of Brooks' "issues" but he hasn't been criminally charged with anything.

By the way PSUskinsfan21, check out the "Could Donnie Edwards be a Skin" thread over in the locker room. I posted another response to you there.

Re: Ahmed Brooks in the supplemental draft?

Coles did get kicked off the fsu team I believe.
The best recent example of a guy dropping because of "issues" was W.Sapp. He was a projected top 5 pick in 95, but dropped to 12 because of a positive test for marijuana. Tampa got a steal. That year I wanted us to grab Sapp, our D sucked, but Norv was taken w/a well built wideout from Colorado, think his name was Michael Westbrook but I've tried to erase it from my memory!

actually it didn't sound like there was a gun involved in the mcdonald's incident, hence they dropped the firearm charges.

Fair enough. Still, Brooks and Vick aren't even on the same rap sheet.

I wasn't aware of the Warren Sapp thing. I guess Norv and Casserly thought the best way to build the team was to do the same thing they did in Dallas by going for the QB-WR tandem. Sapp could have really helped us out. Oh well.

Agreed, I'm not likening him to a criminal. In fact, I have a bigger issue with the character/work ethic/maturity/discipline concerns because those are actually football related. I only mention the others to illustrate the point that to get to the level where a coach is willing to kick you off the team you get to a whole different level of problem players than those who simply have "issues" or "concerns". Of course, it's all conjecture at this point. He could turn out to be great, he could be a bust......either way, I don't like taking chances on guys that can't even cut it on their college team without drawing the ire of the coaches.

Re: Ahmed Brooks in the supplemental draft?

Has their ever been a good pick from the supplemental draft? The last two I remember are Manny Wright the Tackle from USC who cried at training camp last year and Tony Hollings the RB from GT that was so good that the next time the Texans had a 2nd round pick they drafted Vernand Morencey.
