According to Pro Football Talk, Ahmad Brooks was selected by the Bengals.
From Pro Football Talk:
The Cincinnati Bengals have selected linebacker Ahmad Brooks in the third round of the Supplemental Draft.
Perhaps Marvin Lewis and the Bengals should change the name of the third round to the "turd round," since they've now used three consecutive picks in round three on guys of questionable character.
In the 2005 draft, Lewis snagged receiver Chris Henry, who has since been arrested four times. In April 2006, Lewis took defensive end Frostee Rucker, who has faced multiple accusations of misconduct with females.
Now, it's Brooks -- who was kicked off of the Virginia Cavaliers after his junior season. Jason Cole, formerly of the Miami Herald and now of Yahoo! Sports, reported that Brooks failed multiple drug tests while in college.
Nice job, Marvin.
This information has been confirmed my Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat and ESPN.
It seems that a third round pick was more than the 49ers were willing to risk.
