Meh, I'll take it. Since we didn't want a WR in the first round.

Didn't realize you had access to film. He has the work ethic to prove you wrong as an effort guy and serious football skill guy. That's how I feel about him anyway. He was best guy on the board

Our defense just got stronger. Scary thought for the AFC South.

All you have to do is go to youtube and they have entire games on there. Cut up nice and neatly to only the snaps he played. Plus I've seen him play games and watched them back. Are you really unaware of how to watch guys on film?

Anyways, I hope he does prove me wrong because I don't like the pick.

Well, you just have to love a defensive player whose name is Mercilus.

Phillips on Mercilus: "They say 1-year wonder, but you wonder why they didn't play him the year before is what I wonder."

I felt the opposite way about Watt...I was jacked when we took him. He looked like a beast on tape to me...

Here is Mercilus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWfNeKi_hfc
