LB Ahmad Brooks selected by Bengals

According to Pro Football Talk, Ahmad Brooks was selected by the Bengals.

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.

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.

"Elijah Mitchell might be the next one to get it done in Kyle Shanahan's offense. He already has over 500 yards, he has three touchdowns, and if you've got a chance to check them out against the Rams, Elijah Mitchell was making it
