Draft Scout News
10/20/14 - LB Whitney Mercilus had five tackles and two sacks, forced a fumble and broke up a pass while playing in place of rookie Jadeveon Clowney, who worked out on the field before the game but was inactive. Clowney is recovering from knee surgery and has not played since Week 1.
09/01/14 - OLB Whitney Mercilus, who had seven sacks last season on the weak side, plays behind Jadeveon Clowney. He'll be on the field in passing situations. He struggled with the new system until the last two preseason games when he made four big plays, including two sacks. If he does it in regular season, the pass rush could be outstanding.
08/25/14 - OLB Whitney Mercilus started in place of the injured Jadeveon Clowney and played his best game, leading the team with six unassisted tackles and registering a sack. Mercilus said he'd been thinking too much and felt much more comfortable. As a rookie in 2012, he had 6.5 sacks as a reserve. As a first-time starter last season, he had seven.
08/15/14 - OLB Whitney Mercilus, a former first-round pick who had 6.5 sacks off the bench as a rookie and seven as a first-time starter last season, is running second team. He struggled against Arizona and looked lost at times. He's talented and works hard, but he's not making plays.
12/24/13 - OLB Whitney Mercilus recorded a sack against Denver, giving him seven, one more than he had as a rookie last season.
