Texans get Mercilus

Now for some Texans talk i was hoping we get Fleener but i was more than thrilled to see the Texans get Mercilus i thought he would of been gone around pick 20 to the Titans. This kid is around 6-4 fast, long arms, and his jump off the ball is so good he can get past the slower right tackles in the league with little resistance. He is a little flawed but that is expected coming from college to the pros, and with Wade coaching him up i think this kid will be starting mid season and with him and Brooks going in and out of the rotation this pass rush will be that much better. Connor Barwin is approaching his last season under contract so i expect that this move is more insurance as well and hope fully we can keep Barwin but if not Mercilus will be a good alternative. Mercilus had 16 sacks and 9 forced fumbles last season at Illinois in a run first conference imagine the numbers he would of had in a passing league like the NFL. I'm thrilled to have him and with Barwin, Brook, and Whitney expect NO MERCY from the Texans defense.
