the Laos hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default quentin groves

what are your thoughts on the vikings taking him in round one? i'd like to move down a few spots to take him, but if not, i wouldn't mind taking him at 17. after the combine, i don't think he's there when we pick in round two.

1. chris long
2. vernon gholston
3a. quentin groves
3b. derrick harvey
5. phillip merling

He would be too undersized to stay on the field with his hand down

Merling is a superior prospect to Groves there is no way they should be Tied.

Merling is overated and will just end up being another Kenechi Udeze on our team if we draft him.

I agree with that list except I would switch Campbell and Jackson. I really like Campbell's upside and I think if he can pull it together he can be a great End.

I don't see why so many are opposed to the Idea of drafting Phillip Merling. What did anyone think we were going to get with Justin Smith he was no edge rusher yet I didn't hear of even half as much opposition to getting him. Merling has the upside to be a excellent all around DE in this league.

Quentin Groves

Too be heralded for being explosive and very athletic it's a pretty bad thing that he is slow off the line. Pass Rush Moves and good technique can be taught but the inconsistency, the lack of a motor, being slow off the line, and having a questionable work ethic worry me a lot.

Groves is the one who has quickly become very over-rated I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot poll at #17. Second round maybe but definatly not at #17 and not over Phillip Merling.
