    Well...

    Merriweather is a very good player....but this isn't the first time he's had questionable behaviour. I believe he also pulled a gun on an 'assailant' and squeezed off a few rounds. While it was judged he acted legally, this does not bode well considering all the problems we've been having.

    And right now, Nelson looks to be a first rnd pick. I had Merriweather in rnd 2 BEFORE the stomping incident. Depending on his background check, I doubt someone would take Merriweather in rnd 1 and he could easily drop to rnd 3.

    Cinncinatti should have no problem at all drafting him then! He would fit right in! :)

    I like RN the most he does it all covers, run support, hits, and is a ballhawk whilemost of that goes for Landry except his coverage skills aren't the best and seems to like the big hit more than a pick these days. Nelson also has more speed than Landry about high 4.3's to low 4.4's or better and Landry is about the mid 4.5's just throwin it out there not saying it's gonna make RN better but he would be my choice come April.

    Landry ran a 4.35 in front of scouts after his junior yr................Nelson is a flash in the pan.

    I thought Nelson was just a JR...

    I haven't really broken apart tape for these two. But I have seen them play multiple times and it seems like Nelson is always around the ball and made several nice open field plays. I never even noticed Landry if not for the commentators talking about him.
