Admittedly, Larry English was not on my radar. I was thinking running back. I was wrong.
The defensive end out of Northern Illinois was the 16th overall pick and the first round selection of the San Diego Chargers.
English is an OLB who joins a squad with Shawne Merriman coming off a serious injury. The rookie is fast, gets to the ball, sees the field, the only question mark being his lack of size compared to your top tier linebackers.
The running back issue is apparently not an issue at all. Bolts are looking to improve their defense and apparently will field nearly the same offensive squad this season. Without a 2nd round pick, it was an easy day for San Diego.
Here’s a YouTube highlight video of Larry English… impressive stuff:
