The Jaguars are up again after picking David DeCastro in round one. Here is warriorsrise with the pick:
Analysis after the jump.
This is an excellent pick for the Jags. Most of the concerns about Mercilus are about his one year wonder status. However, the Jags save the trouble of worrying about a first round one year wonder by selecting him in the second (after snagging DeCastro, who is a monster).
The Jaguars were one of the worst teams in the league when it came to sacking the QB last year. Mercilus' speed and pass rushing technique should help the Jaguars in those passing situations. There is no reason, give his final collegiate year, to assume he can't become a every-down guy. He's a great grab at 38.
