A 250 lb linebacker that returns punts...
Ahmad Brooks - 6-4, 250 lbs 4.6 - 40. returned the opening kickoff 40 yards on the first touch of his career .
D.J. is nice, but this reminds me of Hollywood Henderson. Keep in mind, Al Grogh is the UVA coach and has coached under Parcells... Not to overhype this guy, but Parcells knows linebackers and could get the inside scoop from Grogh. This guy could be a difference maker.
From the Houstoun Texans War Room.
USA Today's 2001 high school defensive player of the year. With prototypical size, strength, speed, and instincts, Brooks is a natural linebacker. The Cavaliers shifted Brooks to rush end on passing downs last season, although in 2004 they may move him around more as a standup blitzer.
