The San Diego Chargers Week That Was...

Here is the summary of another crazy week in the Chargers offseason. It was the week of the draft and we have to start with those 2012 NFL Draft picks that we can welcome to America’s Finest City:

Round 1: Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
Round 2: Kendall Reyes, DE, Connecticut
Round 3:  Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU
Round 4: Ladarius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
Round 5: Johnnie Troutman, OG, Penn State
Round 7: David Molk, C, Michigan
Round 7: Edwin Baker, RB, Michigan State

Right after the draft, the team was not done and had to work the phones to bring in the undrafted guys. Here is the list of players that we have so far:

Phillip Payne, WR, UNLV
Taylor Embree, WR, UCLA
Michael Hayes, RB, Houston Cougars
Deandre Presley, CB, Appalacian State
Josh Linam, ILB, Central Florida
Jason Barnes, WR, South Carolina
Charles Burton, OL, Montana
Jarrett Lee, QB, LSU
Eddie Brown, DT, Texas A&M
Paul Cox, WR, Miss Valley St
Adonis Thomas, RB, Toledo
Christian Tupou, DT, USC
Mike Harris, OG, UCLA
Logan Harrell, DT, Fresno State
Hubert Anyiam, WR, OK State
Greg Gaston, DB, Arkansas
Nick Guess, LS, Tennessee
Mohamad Marah, FB, San Jose
Michael Willie, WR, ASU
Cordell Bell, OL, Minn St
Sean Catthouse, SS, Cal

Which one of the guys will be our next undrafted free agent star?  Last season Darryl Gamble found a way onto the roster and I am sure that someone here will make it onto the final roster.

Other than the draft this week, the Chargers met for their first voluntary offseason workout programs of the season. The most notable names that were not in attendance were Takeo Spikes, Mike Scifres and Nate Kaeding. The attendance was great for the program otherwise. It was a good time for the newly signed players to meet their new teammates.
