I also give Chicago and Tennessee some credit for passing on Mercilus for lesser prospects.
I get Carril going for Irvin and his potential. He produced with limited exposure to the game and his ceiling is sky high. I think Chandler Jones is an underachiever and it's laughable that draft gurus like Mayock are giving Belichick props for moving up to get him. Big time reach.
