He doesn't need to be bigger. Wade will scheme him where he will be rushing the passer against TE's, RB's. He will be a diffrence maker in Wades defense. Mercilus has the explosion off the ball that all great pass rushers have. He reminds me of Tamba Hali coming out of college.
Mercilus will put on weight naturally (he's only 21 yrs old) as his body matures.
