Default Re: Whitney Mercilus - do you like the pick?

I don't have an opinion on the player, so I voted no opinion.

However, I was one of those, "Keep Mario" guys because I didn't want to address the pass rush yet again early in the draft. I knew it was coming & I hated it then, don't really care for it now.

So if that makes sense, I don't hate that we did it, I hate that we allowed ourselves to get into a position where we had to do it yet again...

But I do love the name, definitely gonna get the jearsey.

Who are you to say that Jerry Jones isn't an egomaniac who would step over his candy ass HC to make a first round pick.

Not liking a pick because he didn't perform up to your standard on tape is fine, cause that's your opinion. Not liking a pick because the Cowboys picked Anthony Spencer at #26 a few years ago while Phillips was with them is asinine.

There is only so much cap room to go around, and Mario Williams got the richest contract ever given to a defensive player. Sometimes you have to let players walk and 'rebuild' (the position) through the draft.

I like this pick. It gives us depth at OLB.

Would've liked Hill more.

Mercilus will be a great player though. He has the heart MW is missing.

Lets see a trade up for J.Martin/Hill.

It was a wild 1st rd.

"The loss of Ryans and Williams created a need for pass rushers and linebackers. Smith said this week that he likes the depth of linebackers in the draft, and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips says Mercilus was the best player on the Texans' board when their pick came up.

Phillips says Mercilus is ahead of where Reed was when Houston drafted him last year. Reed registered a sack in five consecutive games, the longest streak in team history."

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...554/index.html

More quotes:
"DC Wade Phillips said the Texans had considered trading up to select Illinois DE Whitney Mercilus, yet chose to stand firm with the 26th pick. "He's like the guys we have," said Phillips. "He's one of the top pass rushers in the draft, and it's a great opportunity to get a guy like that at this point in the draft."

I think given what was available it was a good pick. that said I would have rather us get either a tackle or a WR. Both my offensive picks were gone though so I am kinda Luke warm about the pick. Yeh they addressed a need but I think there were other more pressing needs for the team than olb.

sent from way too close to Dallas....

Seeing that I didn't say that I can't answer your question.

Regarding the rest of your post I'll just say your comprehension skills need work and I'll leave it at that.

Yes, I like the pick. He needs some development, but he could be a very good pass rusher.

Default Re: Whitney Mercilus - do you like the pick?

I dont see how some people would rather have a WR. Going in to the second round there is Randle, Hill, Jeffrey, Sanu and Quick all still on the board (among others). It is very likely that one or more of those guys falls to us.

Edit: plus Fleener is there too.

His first year starting produced the ncaa lead in sacks. I think it's safer to assume he would continue to shine than regress. I don't see how you couldn't understand that?

Hell, Wade had to say the same thing as me:
Quote:
“But if he did the same thing again for another year, he’d been a top 10 pick (in 2013) without a doubt,” Phillips said. “A lot of people are saying, ‘Yeah, it’s only one year.’ But to me, when a guy shows he can do all those things, I don’t think he’s going to lose that.”

When it comes to making deals like that Jerry has shown that he's out there. Buy more so on the offensive side of the ball.

Makes 0 sense to hire a good defensive minded coach and then not take their input into account. Unless you are suggesting that because of a few instances Jerry never sought out input from his staff mainly Phillips? No way either if us could know that.

But anyways this thread is not about jones. Back to the topic.

I don't like the pick. I'm not neutral or undecided. For this team next year I dont like it. I can see him developing into a good player in future years, but I don't see him making a big impact next year even if pressed into duty because of injuries.

Who did you want them to take? Wades defense is based on pass rush and we got one with a non-stop motor.

Default Re: Whitney Mercilus - do you like the pick?

I called mercilus months ago even if wright was on the board. The gap from mercilus to the next best olb/pass rusher is bigger than the one to the wr. Wr and cb are the deepest in the draft this year. Mercilus is a guy who doesn't have to be schemed to get a sack. Of all the de's who will stand up,he's the most natural. This was a great pick. Not to mention,hill is a project big time. The advisory board gave him a 3rd rd grade. Just because he ran fast in a straight line doesn't mean gms vaulted him up. His short shuttle suggest he can come out a break and gain seperation.

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.
Perry does not fit all that well in a 3-4. While he is a strong pass rusher, he can't really drop that well in coverage, so he may struggle as a 3-4 OLB. As a 3-4 DE, he would have to matchup with a couple of big bodies and I am not sure that is the best place to take advantage of his skill set. I think he is best positioned to excel as a 4-3 DE.

Default Re: Whitney Mercilus - do you like the pick?

I don't see why Mercilus wouldn't succeed in the Texans defense. He'll have one job and one job only and that's to rush the passer. The Texans won't depend on him to get 15 sacks, he'll be part of a rotation primarily to keep Barwin and Reed fresh.With the loss of Mario Williams, adding a guy like Mercilus could potentially negate the blow somewhat. Wade's defense is simple from what we've all read and heard, so he should come in and contribute right away. I agree that he's not the strongest, but he'll be on the outside and he'll use his speed and motor to get to the QB. I think at #26 this was a good value pick for us because I don't think there were really any true 1st round WRs besides Blackmon.
