With the 22nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Cleveland Browns select Whitney Mercilus DE, Illinois
After drafting Trent Richardson to help the offense the Browns decide to bolster their defense with their 2nd pick in the 1st round. The Browns got good production from Jabal Sheard last season, but have no other defensive ends that can get to the passer. Unfortunately the Browns missed their chance to sign Mario Williams so they must now look to the draft to fill this need. Mercilus is a ferocious pass rusher who plays with great power. He had a great junior year leading all college players with 16 sacks and 8 forced fumbles. With a little work on his technique this guy could be a terror for years to come.
This guy looks like he will be very good. Cleveland would have a very good draft by only getting Richardson and Mercilus. I liked him when khodder did a scouting report on him. Now if only they had a quarterback.
You will notice that the Lions are up next and no one has them. If you would like to be the Lions, send me an email with your pick. If more than one of you does, I'll figure it out.
