Sapp lasted until # 12 ONLY because of his reported drug use.  At the end of the previous season, he was the concensus #1 pick in the entire draft; then the rumors started.Brooks was considered too small to excel by the NFL, until he got on an NFL field.....

It's really stunning that Brooks survived so long in the NFL. I had a friend who had interviewed Brooks extensively when he was at FSU and thought the world of him. He told me he had serious concerns with holding up due to his size. I was skeptical, but then I met Brooks in person at the U.S. Capitol building when FSU won the national title. He looked maxed out, and not all that bigger than me. What a career he carved out.
