Information from Ahmad Brooks’ workout

Jun 22, 2006 at 4:19 PM--


Even though Dennis Georgatos of the San Jose Mercury News reported that the 49ers’ interest in linebacker Ahmad Brooks had dampened, both Mike Nolan and personnel director Scot McCloughan were on hand to watch Brooks’ private workout today.

An NFL.com article from today reported the following:

Brooks held a workout for pro scouts on June 22 at the University of Virginia. On a 96-degree day and the heat index up at 110, Brooks ran on AstroTurf and worked out on grass that was dried-out. Bengals linebacker coach Ricky Hunley conducted the workout. There were representatives from 31 teams at the workout, with only the Vikings not in attendance. Mike Nolan from the 49ers was the only head coach there. He was joined by San Francisco VP of player personnel Scot McCloughan. Brooks will work out for the 49ers at their place for two days next week. Randy Mueller of the Dolphins, Mike Murphy from the Cowboys and Calvin Branch from the Raiders were also there. Brooks lost 32 pounds in 10 weeks (he was measured at 6-foot-3, 260 pounds) and passed five drug tests in the last 10 weeks. He ran three times, timed at 4.68, 4.75 and 4.74 in the 40, with 10-yard splits of 1.53, 1.58 and 1.58 and 20-yard splits of 2.73, 2.75 and 2.75. His arm span measured 33½ inches and his hands measured 9½. He had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-8 long jump, a 4.43 short shuttle, an 11.84 long shuttle, a 7.43 three-cone drill and 19 benches. The conditions were not really good, just average.

Brooks, who played linebacker in college but might project as a Julius Peppers-type defensive end in the pros, missed six games with a right knee injury last year. He visited Dr. James Andrews on June 12 for the knee to be examined and that report was made available to all NFL teams.

Brooks will be in the NFL Supplemental Draft July 13. As the article states, but fails to provide the dates, he is scheduled to fly to the Bay Area on June 28 and have a physical with the 49ers the next day.

Scot McCloughan also attended defensive end Jason Berryman's (Iowa State) workout on 6/13. Berryman will probably play linebacker in the NFL.
