Notes:
Started all 13 games for Clemson this past season, ranking first on the Tigers with 17 tackles behind the line of scrimmage and first with seven sacks as well...Merling, who was fifth in tackles overall with 78, caused quite a bit of disruption in the backfield of opponents, registering 21 quarterback pressures to rank second on the unit and earn himself All-ACC honorable mention recognition for his junior campaign...Played in the shadows of GainesAdams in 2006 when he logged 10 TFLs on 46 overall stops...Merling had an impressive rookie year with the Tigers in 2005 when he was named a Second Team Freshman All-American by one outlet...Has great size but doesn't always use it to his advantage, which means he sometimes opens himself up to being pushed off the line...Constantly attacking, a little coaching and practice at the next level could cure some of his deficiencies.
