watch him and mark my words- he is second on the team in tackles and first in sacks- while playing de half the time
Shawn "Lights Out" Merriman is terrific. Might end up being the second or third best DE in the ACC. Doesn't mean he isn't potentially great--just means there are 1or 2 other great DE prospects.
I'm a terps fan, but he only had 6 sacks going into the VA Tech game and they hung 55 on UMd. He definitely doesn't make "every play every game." I like him the same way I liked Jason Taylor when he came out. Similar players, imo. Much stronger than he looks and very agile.
