49ers’ interest in Ahmad Brooks has dampened

Jun 22, 2006 at 10:24 AM--


According to a Q & A with Dennis Georgatos of the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers interest in former Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks may be decreasing. 49ers personnel director Scot McCloughan was scheduled tp be on hand when Brooks works out for scouts Thursday, June 22, in Charlottesville, Va.

It appears the 49ers' interest has dampened in using a pick in the supplementary draft on Brooks or any other player. The team's personnel chief, Scot McCloughan, says the 49ers want to hang onto their picks for next April's draft. If they use a pick in the July 13 supplementary they give up that same pick in the April draft. After looking into it, it appears the 49ers have decided the risk versus reward is too high for them in the supplementary draft.

Brooks will be in the NFL Supplemental Draft July 13. Brooks was (and may still be) scheduled to fly to the Bay Area on June 28 and have a physical with the 49ers the next day.

NFL Media analysts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah went through the exercise of predicting the first three picks for the San Francisco 49ers in this year's draft. The team currently owns one selection in each of the first three rounds — Nos. 3, 43, and 102 overall. The duo took turns during the Path to the Draft segment on NFL Network, with Brooks going first. Jeremiah recently had San Francisco selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones in his latest mock draft. Brooks has been critical of the idea that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch gave up so much draft capital to select



Bucky Brooks explains why he believes Mac Jones-to-49ers is a draft smokescreen

Bucky Brooks recently stated that he doesn't view Mac Jones as a top-three talent in this year's draft class. In fact, he doesn't see the former Alabama quarterback as a first-round talent, period, so it's difficult to imagine the San Francisco 49ers spending four draft picks, including three first-rounders, to move up to acquire him. Media chatter painted a curious picture after the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot on March 26. Because of the history of quarterbacks that Shanahan has worked with, speculation ran rampant, linking Jones to the 49ers. The narrative has changed a bit since Justin Fields of Ohio State held his second



Tannenbaum sees Mac Jones as 'very similar' to Matt Ryan, has QB to 49ers in mock draft

Yet another mock draft has the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick. This one from ESPN's Mike Tannenbaum is a bit different, though. While some analysts feel that Jones-to-49ers is the most likely scenario, many feel that the selection would be a reach, especially with potentially higher-ceiling prospects Justin Fields and Trey Lance likely to still be on the board. The latest ESPN mock draft has Tannenbaum, a former NFL executive, playing the role of general manager for all 32 teams and choosing the players he feels are the best fit for
