"Am I the only one that wouldn't be thrilled with Mercilus as the pick"
and changed it to read:
"Am I the only one that wouldn't be thrilled with Coples as the pick"
Then you have my thoughts as well. Coples has world beater talent, but there have been a lot of guys that had that talent and could not get their mind right to match the physical talent. Coples scares the hell outta me with a first round pick because if he can't get himself up this past season in order to GET his payday, then what will he be like AFTER he gets it. I don't know man, there is a part of me that thinks Mercilus is actually a safer pick, even though he has only one year of production, but I certainly share your concern there as well.
I want guys that wanna play football all the time, every play. I know people point to Peppers as an example of what Coples could be as he had some of the same attitude coming out. That could have merit or it may not. They are two completely different people. I'll be happy as a fan to welcome anyone we pick.
The Greatest form of revenge is MASSIVE success.
I think it was Jeff Dickerson that said that Marinelli really likes Mercilus because he is relentless and has a non stop motor.
That is the reason I like Mercilus and also Branch, both those guys never stopr running and pursuing the play. Those are the type of guys who make plays and have an impact.
Sounds like Mercilus is the consensus pick...
Now I expect him to get picked moments before we pick.
NYJ pick Mercilus at 16
CHI settles for Martin or Kirkpatrick

What should you call any : Fumble , Hold , Interception , Three and out , or Sack ?
A " F.H.I.T.S " ? or a J'Marcus ?
