I'm going to make a bold, but educated prediction. Kamerion Wimbley will be the answer to the Titans sack woes. I'm not talking about putting Tennessee in the middle of the pack, I mean a top 10 sacking team.
Wimbley has 42.5 career sacks in his short six years on the team and that is mostly from being a situational rusher. He played out of position in Oakland due to what I expect was a ton of talent on the defensive line and not enough OLBs. As a 4-3 defensive end Titans fans will become familiar with Wimbley's favorite move, the shoulder dip.
The shoulder dip takes elite speed and body control. Wimbley attacks the edge of the OL and fakes like he is about to put his hands on the blocker. When the tackle or tight end reaches out, Wimbley dips his shoulder and makes the blocker fall flat on his face. The video above should be an example of how well he can play.
With him on point and if Klug preforms to the level I expect, it isn't a stretch that these two alone combine for 20 sacks. Add in new pass rushing coach Keith Millard helping Ayers, Morgan, and Casey figure out the best way to get to the passer and that will also be a big contribution.
All in all, some people think the Titans overpaid for Wimbley. However, the Titans got an underutilized pass rusher at the prime of his career for the next five years. How is that a bad thing??
So what do you think Titans fans? Let me hear from you and tell me who else you think will have to have a big year for us to do well. I hope you enjoyed it. Become a fan on my page to see all my other articles and Titans news. Thanks!
