Mercilus isn't an elite talent. He may be only a slightly above avg pass rusher. He certainly wont fit what RAC wants in his SAM to cover TE's/RB's. So to me this spells out situational pass rusher.
RAC is all about putting players is situations to succeed. Pass rush is what Mercilus does best and there's great value in that role.
