Despite posting a respectable seven sacks, Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus graded out as the league's worst 3-4 outside linebacker in 2013 at Pro Football Focus.
That's out of 42 qualifiers. Mercilus managed to pressure the quarterback 51 times, but a closer look at his play shows he has deficiencies as a pass rusher. He'll continue to man the weak side this season with Jadeveon Clowney on the strong side, but Mercilus will need to take a step forward in his third season. May 16 - 2:50 PM
