        Diehard Titans fans will be checking out top draft picks Justin Hunter and Chance Warmack, North Georgia Titans fans, they'll be checking out the guy in blue wearing number 72.
        "Ever since I saw Steve McNair play for the Titans, it's been a dream for me to play for the Tennessee Titans."
        Former Ridgeland standout Nigel Nicholas began his NFL experience as just another number in powder blue.
        "It was a natural feeling because I was out there playing football, but it was just a different atmosphere. Just being out there with other guys with great talent and being out there with these NFL coaches that know so much about football and just trying to learn everything, it was just an amazing experience."
       Nicholas will be carrying the banner for Panther football, the first player from Ridgeland ever to don an NFL jersey.
       "There have been a lot of great players to come out of Ridgeland and definitely there's a lot of great players coming out of Ridgeland right now, so for me to even have an opportunity to be playing in the NFL it just makes me feel so good about myself, and where I came from, and all the people that helped me get here."
       The Oklahoma State grad is confident he can make an impact right away.
       "Where I come from I love challenges, and I feel like once I learn the play book and just get accustomed to being a professional I feel like I can really help this team out."
      "We feel that we have 30 something guys in here and we think it's a good chance a lot of them have the ability to help us and that's kind of how we are heading forward," says head coach Mike Munchak.
      Nicholas knows he's still got plenty of work to do to make the Titans team and get noticed. In fact, the first roster of the season had Nicholas' hometown as Rossville, Ohio.
