Owner of the Palace of Wisdom
We really didn't interview Merling that much, but at the time, he was seen as great value.
I don't think we really showed a lot of interest in Vontae either.
But honestly, our FO is not that bad with this type of thing. Really, the only picks I remember saying for sure were going to happen were Langford, AJ Edds, Reshard Jones (we flew him down to Miami twice and took him out to dinner both times), and Austin Spitler (Parcells loved him). And you want to draft a prospect you at least know a little bit about.
