Brooks and Lewis too small for NFL

From cbs sportsline

When Derrick Brooks was about to enter the NFL Draft in 1995, a dozen teams told him he would have to move to safety because he was too small at 225 pounds.

Yeah, they were close to being right.

The following year when Ray Lewis came into the league, he lasted until the 26th pick in the first round because a handful of scouts said he was too small.

Want to bet 25 teams wish they had a mulligan on that one?

with the 18th pick of this years draft, the new orleans saints selected.... Jonathan Vilma, Linebacker from the University of Miami. Man, that sounds real good.
