Brooks Reed isn't exactly lighting it up either. I'm hoping Mercilus continues to develop & becomes a force next season. But until he does, I think we need to look at OLB as a need.
Drafting a threat from that position gives us two eggs in the outside pass rush basket, Mercilus & the new guy. If one pays off great. If they both pay off, we'll be back to back Super Bowl Champions.
