Love it but we need to shore up our run-stopping. Mercilus looks handled in the run game. Couple that with the loss of DeMeco in the middle. I'm not saying I'm concerned. I'm just saying plug the hole. Shouldn't be too hard.

I am cautious about it. I think he can be a heck of a player, but he is a one year wonder, and lacks elite explosion.

Well look at it this way: If he stayed his senior year and matched last years production, he wouldn't have been available anywhere near #26.

I voted "No opinion yet."

I am not disappointed. I am not excited.

My main concern is this: Is Mercilus the better guy between him and Nick Perry? For some reason, Nick Perry just looks stronger.

We didn't reach for a WR, which is good news. I am a bit shocked that we didn't go with an OL when Zeitler was still there, Martin was still there, etc. I really figured that Winston's outright release meant we needed more depth on the line.

The thing that makes me sort of OK right now is that Wade Phillips knows what he wants. And the proof is in Son of Bum's puddin'. If it sits well with Wade, then I'm fine with it. Just have that nagging feeling that Nick Perry would have been a better choice.

Cant argue with that - But you can sure question the coach who didnt play him the year before.
