It took Al Wilson about five minutes to take charge of the Broncos' defensive huddle, stepping in as the starting middle linebacker for the two-time Super Bowl champions early last season and flapping his lips like Eminem after a six-pack of Red Bull. This year, the six-foot, 240-pounder who helped Tennessee win a national title in 1998 has a chance to start taking over the league. "A lot of times when you look at rookies, you see a ceiling," says fullback Howard Griffith. "If Al keeps playing the way he is and having fun, he can be one of the best to play this game." He's a player with striking intensity—one of his flaws is that he tends to overrun plays. "He's just a hyper individual," linebacker John Mobley says. "But he backs up all his talk."
