Zach Thomas, arguably the Fins best LB and perrenial Pro-Bowl player, has not had the "playmaker" numbers that people are saying Greenwood lacks as well.

Zach career numbers (9 seasons/ 133 games):

Sacks: 13.5
FF: 10
FR: 6
INT: 15

Tackles: 1259

Seems to me that either the Dolphins' defensive scheme is centered around LBs making tackles, not "plays", or that Zach is a "tackles-only" kind of LB!

What do you think??

Contrast that with the other highly touted Defensive player on the Dolphins:

Jason Taylor:
(8 seasons/ 124 games)

Sacks: 80.5
FF: 22
FR: 19
INT: 4

Tackles: 461 (342 solo)

And for the size issue, Morlon has 1 inch on Zach and about 8 pounds!!
If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
