If he's playing on the strong side he's going to have to cover more. I've watched some film on him now and I personally dont see him being able to do that.
I think he and Merci are both weakside guys if they are playing OLB.
I think Ansah would actually be a really good DE in this 34.
Not so fast my friend. Mario often times dropped into coverage. Dion actually drops into coverage a lot too. Ziggy is even more raw talent, coverage is not a skill set yet but in the future why not? Both are OLB prospects in Wade Phillips defense.
