Default Ziggy Hood?

What's the word on this guy this year? Haven't seen much in print about him. Will he be able to contribute in rotation this year?

BY all the reports coming out of camp this year, Ziggy has shown the most improvement from last year, has been a workout warrior who has been working out twice, sometimes three times a day to get ready for this season, and has been showing an almost James Harrison-like ability to get after the passer.

His name will be very familiar by the end of this next season, as we now have 3 viable starting DE's to use in a rotation.

i agree. by the end of the season hood will be starting. he has way to much talent to be a 2nd string. true he hasnt stood out yet in preseason but he also hasnt looked bad whatsoever. he will tear it up in 2010

i think people tend to focus on "starting" to much. ... all that really means when your at a position that rotates players is who's on the field for the first snap... ... the important thing is how much playing time you get. coaches tend to, or at least they should, give the guys that are playing the best in that particular game more playing time . hood might play better than kiesel one week and get more reps, but that don't mean it'll be that way every week. a lot of it depends on how their strengths measure up against the guy strengths in front of them they're trying to beat.

A number 1 pick should start his second year or you have to question the pick...
