Im thoroughly convinced that you (rack) have yet to see Merriman play.
If you had you would know what all the scouts are saying about him now are pretty accurate.
has a great motor
is a work out monster
is 270lbs of solid muscle
is adapt at outside backer in a 3-4 or even a rush end in a 4-3
he did both at Md- averaged 8 sacks and 90 tackles his last two seasons
I Would say he is similar to suggs- a little more athletic than suggs- not the natural pass rusher that suggs is but a little better in space-
I'm thoroughly convinced that you are OBVIOUSLY biased when it comes to Merriman.
Are you gonna sit there and tell me Merriman is better then Suggs? C'mon, Man. Merriman is good. Real good, but he's not Terrell Suggs. Suggs DOMINATED at his position. Absolutely DOMINATED. Merriman did NOT dominate. He played very well at times, but did not dominate. Teams KNEW Suggs was their teams only threat on defense and he STILL dominated.
Seriously, it's ok to really like a player, but try not to be so biased about it.
