Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus anticipates dropping into coverage more this season.
Mercilus has disappointed as a pass rusher through two NFL seasons, in 2013 grading out as Pro Football Focus' worst outside linebacker in the league. The Texans will turn to Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt as their primary pass rushers this year. "More drops into coverage instead of solely rushing, rushing, rushing," Mercilus said of his role under new DC Romeo Crennel. "Of course I love it. It’s definitely showing my versatility and being instinctive on the field." Jul 17 - 10:13 AM
