    SUMMARY: LB Peter Sirmon has made the move to the middle and has put his knee injury of 2004 completely behind him. "I feel good," Sirmon said. 'I don’t know what my old self was, but I feel real comfortable out there, and I don’t feel like there’s any limitations on me taking a chance or trying to make a play." Sirmon missed all of the 2004 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament early in training camp that year. He came back at the start of 2005 and though he was able to play in 14 games, wasn't as effective as he was before the injury. Coach Jeff Fisher has noticed the difference. "This offseason has really helped him. Last year, he focused on rehabbing the knee," Fisher said. "Now, he’s able to really dwell on the quickness and the change of direction and strength and so forth. He’s doing much better."

    If Sirmon is 100% healthy he may be an excellent MB in our system. He was outstanding outside before his injury and with a couple of new faces on the D he will get everyone in the right place. I really hope we look at Brooks from Virginia in the supplemental draft hes had some off field problems but is saying all the right things and Groh thinks he has learned a hard lesson. Hes big around 265, runs 4.5 or 4.6 is strong enough to play the middle and can probably be had with our extra 4th round pick. He was projected to be a late 1st or early 2nd in the April draft if his head is right he good be a steal.

    I'd rather see Sirmon teach Tulloch a few tricks before completely handing the starting spot over. Tulloch will provide nice depth and Sirmon is no slouch...

    I think the key will be how he deals with a big body on him every play.

    Sirmon and brooks...

    My casual guess would be that sirmon will be some where between the outstanding player he was in 2002-2003 and the guy who struggled last year. I don't see him 100% back to the way he was. He will likely be an improvement on kassell and provides us with some nice veteran leadership.

    We need more info on brooks and the titans will obviously have to talk to this guy extensively to know where his head is at. Fltitan's idea of using a 4th in the supplemental is interesting. Of course as most people know the pick used in the supp draft will count as a pick next draft. The benefit is that we get the player for a year before we actually use a pick.

    i would definitely use a 4th in the supp to take Brooks.

    Much as I'd love to see him succede, since he went undrafted, we should first worry about him making the team before playing time...

    Tulloch led the ACC in tackles, was defensive MVP of the Car Care Bowl, on a team that had Manny Lawson, Mario Williams and John McCargo... He's a player... Don't know much about Moses except that he parted water...
