You want to see Mercilus become a pass rushing force?
Draft Clowney, draft Carrethers in the 4th and you've got a 3rd down pass rushing group of
Clowney/Watt/Carrethers or Mitchell/Mericulus.
With defenses having to double/triple team Watt and Clowney there will be many opportunities for Mercilus/Carrethers/Mitchell to feast on OL's.
