Re: rmartin65's Thanksgiving Day Mock
I like Marcus Rush DE/OLB out of Michigan State.
Whitney Mercilus now Marcus Rush. His name just fits what he does, he rushes the QB.
He's a DE/OLB. Will sometimes drop back in coverage and will line-up at DE and rush the passer. The fact that he has played OLB and has dropped back before just means that if need be, he could convert to ILB. He could play any LB position.
6'2, 250 and he could be had in the later rounds.
Relentless motor who loves to get his hands up in the passing lane.
After seeing how effective your D-Line can be by swatting the ball I want a bunch of players that will do that.
While we're talking about Michigan State, William Gholston (Cousin of draft bust Vernon Gholston) gets his hands up a lot too. With a 6'7, 275 frame you can bulk him up to play as a 3-4 DE.
6'6 Watt and 6'7 Gholston on the outside would really make it hard for a QB to get the pass off uncontested.
