Ziggy plays heavy which is a must when you take on NFL tackles . Mercilus had great numbers last year and really hadn't had a chance this year . Barwin is better suited for the SOLB . If Ziggy can't play OLB he can be a 5 , heck he lines up at NG sometimes now . He's an elite talent that's not yet an elite player .... yet .
