i just watched an every play video of mercilus vs. ucla, and i would disagree with this. at least in that video, he made more plays against the run than against the pass, but it was pretty balanced. there was at least 2 or 3 runs to the outside that he completely collapsed the edge and the rb was screwed. there was another play in there that he got through the middle and stopped the rb in the backfield after going through two blockers. and then he got a few sacks in the game, and those plays looked really good, but at other times, it looked like he completely got swallowed up by blockers and he couldn't even push them into the pocket. after watching this video, i prefer ingram over him, but he'd be my #2. and i still don't like upshaw. i just don't see it.
