Nobody drafts a situational pass rusher with the 9th pick in the draft, but at the same time I would hate to see Mercilus go to one of our division rivals and we regret not taking him for the next 12 years.
He looked really strong in that bowl game.
What about Melvin Ingram? I've heard lots of positive things about Upshaw but nothing about Ingram.
One name, Melvin Ingram. All he did at South Carolina was get to the QB. I think he's a great fit.

watching branch he moves pretty well and i'm seeing some pretty solid looking lateral agility and he looks ok when hes asked to drop...plays standing up an awful lot which is what i want to see for a 34 olb convert but he's got an average first step and lacks explosion and burst in his pass rush...i definitely think he's a 34 olb but i don't know how much success this guys gonna have going one on one against nfl tackles off the edge...
watching melvin ingram the other day i saw a guy who played an awful lot with his hand in the dirt in a 3 point stance...an awful lot...very powerful player though...but i didn't see enough there to say to myself this guys a 34 olb convert...i guess i need to dig further for evidence
man...i seriously wonder if bruce irvin weighs 230 lbs...he looks awfully damn lean to me...explosive as hell...but lean
