Tell Chris your opinion.

One of the premiere players in the supplemental draft will be Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks. Brooks worked out for about 22 NFL teams on June 22nd. Brooks is currently 6-3, 260 pounds after losing over thirty pounds over a few months. The only head coach who attended the event was Mike Nolan, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com. The 49ers could be the team most interested in acquiring Brooks.

Apparently, the 49ers plan on flying Brooks to Santa Clara, where he'll have a physical for the team the next day. If the 49ers want Brooks, they probably won't take him in the first round. However, there's a possibility that Brooks may be worthy of a second-round selection, meaning the team would have to keep their eyes open. In the supplemental draft, whichever round you select the player in forces you to forfeit that pick in the 2007 NFL draft.

Many teams are interested in Brooks very much, and those teams most interested may be the 49ers, New York Giants, Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, and Miami Dolphins. For the Giants, director of player personnel dined with Brooks on June 21st. Bengals linebackers coach and Packers director of college scouting also met with Brooks on the 21st to talk with him.

The Dolphins investigated the character issues that Brooks has had the past few years, which could be the only downfall that teams see in him.
