The Chargers needed depth at linebacker and needed some guys to fill in on special teams so with that in mind the team drafted Siler and considered him a steal in the seventh. Before long, Siler was proving immediate dividends on special teams where his downhill play-style suited special teams so perfectly.
In the 2007 regular season, Siler was a beast on special teams and would often deal a crushing blow to the returner. He wracked up and impressive 21 solo tackles which is second only to Eric Weddle among defensive players who didn't start a single game.
Brandon Siler has quietly emerged as one of the Chargers better special teams and although Kassim Osgood earned a trip to the Pro Bowl, Siler may not be that far behind him.
