Early years

Campbell originally attended Hyde Leadership School in New Haven, Connecticut, where he was a four-year letterwinner and never missed a game during his career. He played defensive end all four years and started at that spot and offensive tackle his last two years. Campbell had 50 tackles, including 4.5 quarterback sacks, while blocking two PATs and one punt as a junior, and recorded 70 tackles, including six sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery his senior season in 2005. He subsequently earned PrepStar All-American honors.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Campbell was ranked as the No. 17 offensive tackle prospect in 2006.[1] He chose Maryland over Michigan State, Nebraska, and Virginia. However, before enrolling at Maryland, Campbell spent a preparation year at Hargrave Military Academy.

Sounds like a fair trade. The o-line can use the help.

This is Campbell's brain issue.

If that is the case, it is also very possible that he has other issues. Any form of hydrocephalus can lead to severe cognitive impairment. For those of you not studying Neuro, it is associated with the inability of your body to dispose of Cerebral Spinal Fluid through the arachnoid space usually requiring a shunt or drainage device.

Until it is discovered and treated, it leads to pressure on the brain, just as seen in head trauma cases with internal bleeding. This pressure causes numerous cognitive impairments most often associated with processing speed and memory.

Read it, did not really understand the med term, but it seems like a serious issue, maybe not something we all should be making fun of the newest members of our team, this guy has been suffering through this his whole life, and even with this disorder (if it is actually accurate) the guy was able to score an 18 on the wonderlic, I know this test isn't the best at rating players, but it does show that he can be coachable, maybe at a slower pace, but he is a freak athlete, and we do have a good support system in place for him and veteran leadership,

I remember watching this guy back at the NFL Combine. He tore it up, so much so that Eisen and Mayock interviewed him afterwards. Drew Rosenhaus is his agent, was saying that his performance was the best ever or something like that. He fell to the 4th round simply bc of his mental issues.

Goodson was going to be cut. If we had cut him, we would receive nothing in return for him. This way, we receive a prospect. We already win. Potential > Nothing every time. If the potential doesn't pan out, then we end up with precisely what we would have had with cutting Goodson. What Goodson achieves at Oakland is completely irrelevant to our situation. Seems Oakland had pretty much the same situation, so it's a win/win.

The fact that you have to spell that out in such detail for some members is quite sad really.

We forget that our head coach and offensive coordinator played the Raiders twice a year. They probably saw more tape on Campbell than we think and had the reaction of the Chargers D-line to his play for 2 years even if it was limited. It may not mean anything but I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

That this young man has overcome and dealt with what he has to get to this point, earning the honors that he has along the way, is remarkable in itself. He may be just the exemplary type of person that Rivera seems to seek out. Remember, he had total faith in Cam as a person when few others did.

Lets face it even if this dude pans out he will be a good backup. Him and Otah are def on the bubble and hopefully Bell will work out at RT.
