Whitney Mercilus is a hot name
at the moment.
Here's more of what I've been able to gather through the grapevine. Nobody I spoke to said it outright, but look at these points and see if offensive skill position players might rush the top 10, which would play into Dallas' best-case scenario:
-- I was told Whitney Mercilus is the hot name among the outside linebacker/defensive end prospects. He could land in the top 15, and perhaps go as high as Kansas City at 11 or Seattle at 12.
-- The Jets were named as a possible landing spot for either Melvin Ingram or Courtney Upshaw. The Jets are also high on Mark Barron, which could factor in Dallas' thinking about him.
