Which Chargers Rookie Are You Most Excited To See?

The draft is done and it is time to salivate over what these kids are able to provide for us! A lot of people are excited about the haul of players that AJ Smith selected this year, but which rookie are you most excited about? Which kid’s jersey are you looking to buy?

The easiest choice would be for our number 1 draft pick DE/LB Melvin Ingram. If you watched the sport science video on the kid, you know he is a freak athlete! Plus he can do a back flip… I don’t know why that is so cool to me. He will be relied upon to put Peyton Manning in the dirt over and over and over again.  AND OVER AGAIN! Ingram is one of the reasons we have hope that this defense can be much better.

Do you like the offensive side of the ball, where we have a young, tall and athletic tight end, Pee-Wee Green, that will be snatching touchdowns from Philip Rivers? Plus, his nickname is Pee-Wee! If Green shows off that athleticism and speed in the game, he will become a fan favorite real fast.

Could you be looking forward to seeing a draft pick from last year, Jonas Mouton? Jonas was not able to get on th field last year because of injuries, but he is looking to make a comeback this year. Mouton will get plenty of action in the middle of the defense and he is supposed to be a thumper. He will be laying out a few runningbacks this year with his aggressive play. Cracking skulls!

Maybe you want to see the young safety Brandon Taylor line up next to Eric Weddle. He could be stealing the starting safety job by the end of training camp. He will have all kinds of opportunities to win the starting job and we will be looking for some impact plays from him.

These youngsters have a lot of potential and there is plenty to be excited about. Who are you looking forward to the most?

    Great point on Mouton.  I think he will make a big impact similar to what Butler did after having sat out his rookie year with injury as well.  In saying that, I think he will make quite an impact like Butler did.  He won’t see as much time as Butler did last year, imo. 

    • EU_CHARGERS

       @BoogaP Mouton and Butler will be the starters after a few games,spikes can help us but not like starter.

      • BoogaP

         @EU_CHARGERS
         I can see why you’d say that but Spikes still has a lil left in the tank.  Now if you had said by game 8 or 9….I would buy that.  I don’t necessarily agree, but I could see that.
         
        Hey by the way, that troll on the article calling you a dreamer….Don’t even respond to that guy.  He obviously comes on here to whine and argue.  #BoltUp

  • BoogaP

    Picture this…..
     
    You’re at the Murph for the first home game Sept. 16th against the Titans.  It’s the first third down play of the first series and in comes Ingram for his first play of his career. 
     
    Hasselback drops back, forced out of the pocket, BOOM! Melvin Ingram gets his first sack of his career.  Fans are going crazy and then go quiet….Stadium announcer MEEEELLLLLVVIINNN, then the fans chant in unison: IN YOUR FACE.  Stadium announcer:  IIINNNNGRAAAAAMMM!
     
    Alright, so I know his nickname is SupaMelvin, but how amazingly cool would it be to hear all the fans at the Murph doing that every time Ingram gets a sack?  Imagine how much it would energize him and the rest of the defense!!
     
    I think it would be AMAZING!! Just a thought.

  • EU_CHARGERS

    Melvin Ingram.

  • Brett_Higdon

    @chargersbuzztap Ingram without a doubt…just because what I have seen of him indicates beast status. Ledarius Green def #2.

  • Calum

    Well, overall I’m most excited about watching Troutman in 2013….. ;)
    But seriously, watching Green develop over the season will be great, I don’t share this “can be better than Gates” feeling but he’s doing to be another dynamic option in an offense which is a 3rd down back away from being the most exciting in the league (Brown’s first ‘full’ season will be interesting too). 
     
    Melvin Ingram, I’m really just hoping he makes the impact we’re all expecting. If SP95 is still a force, I think we’ll be ok.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @Calum Troutman!!!! woo woo! so dang excited!

    • BoogaP

         @RMainwaring
         Man ur crazy! Laugh out loud. It was cool at my football games cuz even when the away team was booing I felt like they were cheering for me.  I used to taunt the away fans all the time.  Players too.  Nearly got my butt whooped a lot! lol.

    http://t.co/N82Hecvt
    That is the link for my comment being on NFL Network’s “No Huddle” show. lol

    • RMainwaring

       @BoogaP So they answered a couple of your questions on NFL Nutwork, right?

      • BoogaP

         @RMainwaring
         That one and then they had asked where in the first round Mike Adams should be drafted in and I said “By a team in the second.  I know he had a great SeniorBowl but there is something that bothers me about him.  Buyer Beware!”
         
        They edited the clip but, yeah it was on there.  Funny thing was less than a week later it was announced that he failed a drug test at the combine! 
         
        Oh, by the way, as most of you know, he fell to the second round!

        • RMainwaring

           @BoogaP Lmfao! Good call bro, good call. Obviously they think your comments are entertaining otherwise they wouldn’t read them. I’m sure they’ll read more of them in the future. Yeah dog!

      • BoogaP

         @RMainwaring
         I just now saw the “NUT-work” not sure if it was intentional but Im laughing anyway.

        • RMainwaring

           @BoogaP ”Nutwork” WAS intentional. :)

        • biggsybolt

           @RMainwaring  @BoogaP Good! ad LaCanfora to the list of NutJobs that work there. He totally ruined watching the draft for me.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @BoogaP now that is awesome!!!!

      • BoogaP

         @epadaon
         LMAO! That clip doesnt show Mooch and Deion arguing as much as they did but I have in recorded on my DVR.

        • RMainwaring

           @BoogaP  @epadaon If you listen close, right when Mooch says BoogaP, Michael Irvin giggles. 

        • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

           @RMainwaring  @BoogaP one of the first things i noticed!!1 haha

  • biggsybolt

    I guess we can call Mouton a rookie, being as he was on IR last season. Would be awesome if he shines like Butler did last year.
    Im r interested in seeing if Reyes can bump one of the starters out  at LDE, he should be able to hold the blockers and let SP95 get to the QB and get quite the push.
    I also am very interested in seeing if Ingram is the next monster pass rusher that we’ve been lacking since Merriman had that bounty out on him.

    • BoogaP

       @biggsybolt
       There you are!

    • BoogaP

       @biggsybolt
       That damn bounty.  Fisher didnt want Merriman killing anyone!  It’s a shame.  I still have some Merriman jerseys.

      • RMainwaring

         @BoogaP  @biggsybolt Haha. I was at the thrift store the other day and there were all kinds of Merriman and LT jerseys. lol

        • biggsybolt

           @RMainwaring  @BoogaP Ouch, damn fair weather fans. I have no hard feelings towards either one of them.

        • RMainwaring

           @biggsybolt  @BoogaP I don’t have hard feelings towards Merriman but I’m pissed at LT the way he dissed the team that gave him his start when we played the Jets last season.

        • biggsybolt

           @RMainwaring  @BoogaP I understand that, but I would welcome him back IF AJ would have him. Assuming he isn’t picked up this year he will retire a Bolt and enter the HOF a Bolt.

        • RussellGrant

          @biggsybolt @RMainwaring @BoogaP I still have my Seau jersey. raider fans love that on game day.

  • BoltBoi4Life

    @chargersbuzztap Brandon Taylor… We’ve had to fill that safety void for quite some time..

  • Chargersfan4life

    I’m really excited to see what Brandon Taylor can do! :)

  • BoogaP

    Guys I am looking for sdboltzfan anyone seen him comment on anything? Let me know if you have.  Tell him to check his email. lol

  • mally117

    @chargersbuzztap offensive guard

  • zeus619

    David Molk was a steal. Can’t wait to see Kendall Reyes and Melvin Ingram light people up.

  • MikeTuck

    Ingram can be a game changer for us. If he helps get the line together and our new D-coordinator plays the 3-4 to put lot’s of pressure on the opposing QB our secoundery will look alot better. Especially with Florence if they’ll sign him. Alot of pressure and Weddle getting Safety help, Gilchrist coming into his own and Jammer healthy the AFC west will see a whole other Chargers Defense. But the key is how the LB’s are used in the 3-4. Florence if signed could put pressure on jammer and Cason to compete to retain their positions which is a good thing. But I see Gilchrist moving into a lead role by the end of the season.
