And the teams didn't rank some of these guys as high as LZ did and they ranked some other guys higher.

Now's the time to sit back and see how these guys actually do in our system. We've got a nice posse of WRs now and hopefully, they develop.

(on comparing Mercilus to J.J. Watt at this time last year from a developmental standpoint) I look at him a little more developed than Brooks Reed was last year because Brooks didnt use his hands as well. Brooks is a really good football player. I mean at the end of the year, he and J.J. were dominant players at their position. Were excited about that, and of course, Connor Barwin is, too. I think this kid will fit right in. I think hell fit right in that group, and you wont say, Wow, we got two guys and him, and hes got to come along. I think hell fit right in that group.

This is so, so, so very true and I try to put that out there every chance I get. We watch games on television.... not all-22 tape. We don't have access to personal interviews nor to medical reports.

Anything that any "draftnik" or "tv personality" talks about is generally an opinion that isn't backed up by as much info. With that said, there are also plenty of times when evaluators for teams miss and a draft writer will be right on a player.

I need to see more on Posey. My grade was based 100% on the grade from another team as I hardly got to see him this year because of his suspension. Keyshawn Martin was a 4th for me as was Crick. However, no offense at all is taken by saying that teams have more access to info that any of us do. I will say that in the 4 games I watched on Mercilus, I thought he stayed engaged a little too long and didn't look like a polished pass rusher.

My draft ratings are based on watching games, going to Shrine practices, Sr. Bowl practices, the combine and speaking with teams. I will have a write-up of my thoughts on the Texans draft later tonight. Other than Posey that high, I was pretty happy.

(on what jumped out to him about Mercilus while watching film) Well, hes a natural pass rusher. Hes got the skills that you look for in pass rushers. Hes a little different than Brooks Reed was last year. Hes more used to using his hands, and hes got a speed rush, hes got a power rush, and hes got a quick inside move. Its something certainly to develop, but he has some natural moves. I mean you dont get 16 sacks in that league without having some natural gifts, and he has those.

That is one of the reasons I felt like (and still feel like) the Texans needed to bring someone in to compete and eventually start at that position. Reed is probably a rotational pass rusher who is great depth.

FWIW, from the Chronicle-Dale Robertson link

Quote:
But Mercilus, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said, is more of a Brooks Reed except hes even further evolved that Reed was when the Texans chose the Arizona Wildcat with a second-round pick in 2011. And, like Reed, hell be converted to outside linebacker with the Phillips needing to replace Mario Williams, who was lost to Buffalo because of salary-cap problems.

Hes more used to using his hands than Brooks was, and hes a really good football player, Phillips said. By the end of the year, Brooks and J. J. were dominant players. This kid will fit right in with them.

Not arguing any of that. He's got natural pass rushing ability... said the same thing on radio and on TV with Matt Musil. If he is as developed as people believe that Wade thinks he is, he will start. No need to keep a player who is more developed on the bench over Reed. My money is on Reed starting and Mercilus playing the Aldon Smith role this year.

Hey, I, for one, am good with that mix. If we get Aldon Smith production out of him in a part-time role, he's a good pick.

I agree with all of this. I think merci has more high end potential, but I can't predict who will be the better player this upcoming season.

If reed has progressed a good amount it'd probably be him though. I don't think merci is going to be ready for a full time gig next year but you never know.

As far as just pass rushing goes I too give the edge to reed.

Default Re: Thoughts on Mercilus and My 2nd/3rd Round Draft Value Chart

Don't want to keep going back and forth as there is really no argument from me here. Just want to make sure I'm not being misrepresented. Here is what I said about Brooks Reed pre-draft:

Brooks Reed, Arizona


Reed had a terrific Senior Bowl and showed every pass -rushing move imaginable in one-on-one drills which is one of the reasons that I believe he will probably be over-drafted. Hell, I was just as excited as anyone until I actually watched tape of him. What I see in Reed is a slightly stiff pass rusher with a great motor and a very good inside spin move. What worries me is that Reed wasnt as productive as you might expect from a pass rusher being considered in the first round. While I expect Reed to be a solid pro, I dont think hell be the pass rusher that some expect and hes probably best suited to be a strong-side OLB in a 3-4 defense that already has an accomplished pass rusher on the weak-side. I dont see Reed as a first round talent.

.... and what I said post-draft:


Round 2 (pick 42) Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona
Z-Report Top 100: 41
Z-Report Says: Reed had a terrific Senior Bowl and showed every pass rushing move imaginable in the one-on-one drills which is one of the reasons I went scrambling to watch more games of him to find out why there wasnt a bigger buzz surrounding him headed into the Senior Bowl practices. What I saw on tape was a player who plays hard, gets off the snap with a great first step and a guy who is relentless. Reed didnt have the sack production I expected after watching him at the Senior Bowl and he is a little stiff in the hips which means he isnt going to change direction as well as you would like. To me, Reed can be an effective complimentary rusher, but hes not Clay Matthews. Reed should be able to come in right away and fight for a starting job and he can be part of an attacking unit that gets after the QB rather than a dominant individual pass rusher. The first two picks of this draft set the tone for Wade Phillips and the Texans as they are looking for guys who play hard each snap and whose primary focus is football. That is the word on both Watt and Reed from scouts in the business.

You weren't high on Reed last year, pre-draft. I pretty much agreed with you, then. But, Reed has won me over with his performance last year. He had 6 sacks in 5 games, after Mario went down. After that, he ran into the dreaded rookie wall and went dormant for a few games. Reed rested in week 17, and came back strong in the playoffs with 3-1/2 sacks. Yes, he should be in a rotation. But, I think he's the real deal as a pass rusher.

Do you remember the defense that the Rams ran in the late 80's, where they would have 2 d-lineman down and 5 LBs standing? Not knowing who was going to blitz and who would drop back. I think the Texans could run something like that now, with Barwin, Reed, Cushing, and Mercilus. I see Wade cooking up something to get everyone of his pass rushers on the field.

This is very true and it is to your credit that you acknowledge this.

That being said:
Postmodern Americans don't lack information in making good decisions, we often lack the clarity of thought, discernment, and integrity to draw the correct conclusion. Access to an excess of information does not eliminate those issues, but it can magnify them. Teams with good decision-making models with people that divert the least from those models are the ones that get it right most of the time. All this is to say that having less information than others does not disqualify a person from the possibility he drew an educated and better conclusion.

I respect Lance's opinion a great deal, not because he is more informed that everyone else, but because I think he is consistent and his conclusions are sound. There is nothing wrong with someone like LZ critiquing the Texans' organization or any other organization regarding personnel decisions they made.

(I love this Texan draft. Partly, however, because I believe in Rick Smith, Kubiak, and their decision-making process. Still, I like to hear what others I respect, like LZ, think about it)

Hey guys, I was wondering if everyone else is as happy as I am about this draft? I mean we got 3 great hogs for the O-line...Mercilus the Merciless!!! We got Crick, who is a great gamble to get in there as a down lineman, whom excelled when he had someone a little more brilliant playing next to him. Well great news brotha cause we got that kinda situation going on.

I have been digging up reports from pre-draft about the two WR and the only knock on the guys are that they aren't that good at blocking. So that made me think, after the Texans had WR Randle right in their lap and traded away, that they feel these guys can do what they are looking to do and they could add a pick on the 3rd "1st-round" (day 3-4th rd).

Perhaps they are looking for more aggressive 4/1 and 5/0 sets, using Arian lined up wide? That way we can stress teams that have shallow depth at DB and protect Matt with quick release while we bring along our baby giants?

I am happy with what they've done and I look forward to supporting them. I swear to God the only person that my confidence is low in, is Kareem Jackson LOL .... #25 is always on the bad end of a great play. Hurts me deep :x

I'm gonna even have to change my dang Avatar because Smith has been kicking butt the past 3 years in the draft. Maybe he fails at managing contracts, but he's looking great with Wade's advice on picks.

Let me just say that I'm not an Aggie and I don't have or care for their rivalry with UT and all that commercial rivalry crap. However.. I am extremely happy the Houston Texans have a K from Texas A&M... that is just awesome. I say that because you can hate those guys but they make damn good soldiers in their little subculture. We have a nice team composition ;-)

You can read through the board and see that people are mostly pleased with it. A few people are extremely upset by the choices made at WR because we chose guys that weren't as highly ranked or touted as other guys that were out there.

I think the Texans got the guys they wanted. I think they didn't like Randle (or Sanu or Toon) as much as a lot of other people did.

And I don't think Wade is as worried about KJ as some people are.

I think most everyone is happy. Heck, as much as I am hesitant about Posey, I still love our haul.

People are going to complain about things the team does, it is part of being a free-thinking fan. And we are allowed to- do you guys all only complain about things that you are getting paid to do, that you are experts in? I have a hard time believing that everyone who participates in the NSZ is an expert in every little topic that gets discussed there, yet nobody is told to stop complaining because they are not an expert. Opinions are allowed, and as long as they contribute to the discussion, a poster should not be discouraged from giving an opinion.

Just something to think about- nobody is saying we should fire Smith after this draft! That might be a first.

Default Re: Thoughts on Mercilus and My 2nd/3rd Round Draft Value Chart

My thought on every Texans 2012 draft pick

Ill let you know right up front that I dont do draft grades. Its stupid. Seriously, how many of you were in school and had a teacher pass out tests to you with grades already in red marker on them before you even got to take the test? That never happened. Well, it probably happened at a few high schools and college where they were trying to keep guys eligible, but you know what Im saying. I cant grade this draft until I see these players play. Instead, I will give you my opinions on each player the Texans drafted...
