    It's just a case of trying to figure out which one of the tweeners will be
    the next great edge rusher in an NFL 3-4. Here's a guy, Shawne Merriman out
    of Maryland, who looks to have tremendous potential. Kiper says he might be mid first round. If the Texans staff liked him as much as Kiper and he was still
    on the board @ our 2 round pick... I dunno, Casserly says you never can have
    enough QBs, I say if you run a 3-4 you can never have enough LBs.

    He seems to be another one of those guys that fits the 3-4 OLB scheme perfectly.

    Kiper has him at 12 or 13 on his big board, so maybe 2nd round is out of question. but you never know, randy starks was suppose to be gone by mid 2nd at the latest and wound up going in the third to the titans.
