Do we burn a mid to late rounder on Ahmad Brooks?

http://football.about.com/od/playerp...hmadbrooks.htm

Ive heard this guy is a beast, and he sounds like a good middle LB. Given our history of poor picks in Rounds 4,5,6 do we take a shot in the supplemental draft if he is available? My first impression is yes, but there have been some off the field issues. I think the biggest issue was a possession of less than 15 grams of pot, which could have been as little as a joint, I don't know. Thoughts?

I'd want to make sure those issues were addressed, but I think it would be worth a shot.

I love that his dad played under Gibbs during the first era. Maybe that would give Gibbs a better chance at reaching Ahmad.

Bob Marley would have been proud of a joint filled with 15 grams of weed.

That's about a half ounce. That's alot of weed.

Easy guys. Someone popped with a joint gets charged with possession of less than 15 grams. He coulda had a joint, an 1/8th, a pipe with residue, anything really. I had a client charged with that when they found 2 marijuana seeds in his ashtray, there's just no way to know without seeing the police report. Maybe there are some articles out there. Anything less than 15 grams is presumed, in my State at least, to be for personal use and its automatic probation 1st offense, and can later be expunged off his record. Now before anyone jumps all over me, let me say again that's just where I practice, probably not everywhere.

Re: Do we burn a mid to late rounder on Ahmad Brooks?

I thought he had a lot more problems than just one joint. Didn't he get kicked off his team as well?

Since character is important for gibbs, I highly doubt we even waste any time with this. Just seems like inviting distraction.

He would fit in well with other recent Bengal draft pics ! I think he had more than a few problems with coaches and law enforcement ?

I misread it, I thought he got caught with 15 grams. My bad.

Re: Do we burn a mid to late rounder on Ahmad Brooks?

He has had lots of problems over the last few years. Heck he didn't even actually get into UVa when he got a scolarship and had to go to prep school for a year. The guy has been one issue after another. Groh is a tough guy but to boot someone with the caliber of talent Brooks has you have to have been burned pretty badly and numerous times. I'd pass.

Re: Do we burn a mid to late rounder on Ahmad Brooks?

I'd easily spend a 3rd on this guy. He's made his share of mistakes, but when you look at the Risk vs Reward I'd take him in a heart beat. Coming out of high school he was the #1 overall defensive recruit in the country. Some of the thigns the Sirius NFL guys said about this guy were great. Many had talked to him and said he didn't sound like a troubled kid in their eyes.

He could be the best player ever taken in the Supplimental draft.

I wouldn't bother with a guy like this.

Doesn't sound like a high character guy that this staff generally looks for.
