Default Re: Whitney Mercilus - do you like the pick?

Yes, I like the pick. He needs some development, but he could be a very good pass rusher.

"The loss of Ryans and Williams created a need for pass rushers and linebackers. Smith said this week that he likes the depth of linebackers in the draft, and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips says Mercilus was the best player on the Texans' board when their pick came up.

Phillips says Mercilus is ahead of where Reed was when Houston drafted him last year. Reed registered a sack in five consecutive games, the longest streak in team history."

More quotes:
"DC Wade Phillips said the Texans had considered trading up to select Illinois DE Whitney Mercilus, yet chose to stand firm with the 26th pick. "He's like the guys we have," said Phillips. "He's one of the top pass rushers in the draft, and it's a great opportunity to get a guy like that at this point in the draft."
