    could keep going, most would fit in a 3-4 I'm not sure Merriman projects as a OLB to the Texans, would be excellent on the corner as a pass rushing 4-3 DE, but he would be hard to pass on if still available.

    On the other hand, Tim Ryan (T-Rock) on NFL Radio says that the cornerback position for this draft is the deepest he has seen in the last 10 years. He thinks that at least 15 . . . 15 cornerbacks will taken on the first day of the draft. It is that deep in talent.
