Minus the addition of Junior Seau, last year did very little to help the MLB/ILB position. Brooks could had easily been a first day pick in 2007, but was ineligible and went to the NFL in 2006. More talented than Beason? More talented than David Harris? I don't know. In hindsight.... Would the Pats bid a third round pick to gain the rights to Brooks? I believe he started 5 games and recorded 28 tckls, 1 sack and 2 PDs. Hardly a dominate rookie year. Consider that the Bengal would had been in line to pick a CB like Jonathan Wade (TEN) and the fact the Pats traded their third rounder. The issues is moot if the rules follow that the team with the better record (reflected in the 2006 draft) gains the advantage if the round is the same.
