SLB Philip Wheeler and WLB Clint Session made major strides in 2009 in their second and third seasons, respectively. With Session now locked in at his natural position and Wheeler beginning the season a starter, even bigger things are expected from the Colts' underrated linebacker corps. A daily team observer tells PFW that Session's transition to the weak side last season helped slow the game down, allowing him to let plays come to him, which put him in the right position more frequently. A bit undersized, with a motor that is always running and big hitting ability, Session was called by our source as a "bigger Bob Sanders." Wheeler, who had a different coordinator each of his first two seasons in the league, improved greatly as the '09 season progressed — he became a full-time starter after Tyjuan Hagler went down with a season-ending biceps injury in Week Eight. Wheeler has to become more consistent and continue learning the playbook, but we hear the club believes he has the potential to become a big-time playmaker.
