Whitney Mercilus 7th overall....

NCAA Defensive Player of The Year. Exploded onto the seen!! Had 16 sacks! High Motor relentless!!! This is a Gene Guy who can start day one!! he has great size and speed. All the mockers have him going late 1st or early second but im telling you his draft stock is rising and he will go much earlier if we dont get him at 7. He will most likely go between 15th and 20th but i can see him going as high as 13 if we dont scoop him at 7. you cant trade back to get him because like Alualu a couple of years ago, everyone is keeping quiet and he is going to be beast.. Plus he is an Illinois Guy and we all know what that means!! He is 6'4" 261 lbs and ran a 4.68 in the 40. he had 57 tackles 16 sacks and 9 forced fumbles in 2011. Joe Cullen got a great look at him at the combine when he conducted pass rush drills for him. Im sure i get drilled for this but I see Gene gettin this guy 7th overall especially with the lack of receiver talent that early and Claiborn of the board at 5.
