New San Diego Chargers OL Coach Joe D’Alessandris was present during Arkansas Pine Bluff LT Terron Armstead’s Pro Day.

Interesting note that the Chargers OL Coach ran him through his Pro Day workout.

Armstead is the speedy offensive tackle at the combine. He is a freak athlete and the Chargers can use any help they can get on the offensive front. The Chargers need to do their research on the kid, since he didn’t face tough competition at Arkansas Pine Bluff. They will have to see if his athleticism will translate to the NFL level.

I just want to know which prospects and free agents will be wearing Chargers uniforms already.

    Same here man, everyday when I get up I check to see if this is the day were making moves… far this is the most info we have got. Where is Armstead slotted to go in the draft? 2nd or 3rd? Maybe this is the Bolts saying were not using the 1st round pick on a LT?

    • Ernie Padaon

      he is going to be gone around the 2nd or 3rd round of the draft… with his performances at the combine and at the pro day, wouldnt be surprised if he is gone by the 2nd

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Do you think he will be there when our 2nd pick comes up?

        • Ernie Padaon

          45… i think he should be there.

        • lblocz

          he should be there hes a mid 2nd to early 3rd pick unless a team in the early 2nd reaches for him.

    • Steve Diaz

      same here! I check out NFL.COM, Bleacher report, and Boltbeat every couple of hours each day to check for any new updates. After V. Martin, we need to start REPLACING players now. The only other person I wouldn’t mind gone is Clary. One more month to the draft….

  • Sergio Quintero

    More of a you have to prepare for worst case scenario of all 3 LT gone by 11, have to find your LT later, maybe Menelik Watson in the 2nd or Armstead in the 3rd round. Don’t want to enter the draft needing a LT, then every team below the chargers knows if they want one they have to trade ahead of them.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      I don’t think the Chargers want to use the #11 on a LT, I think they will use it to make the D even better and draft a LT in the 2nd or 3rd. Maybe Telesco sat down with Gaither and got him to agree to split time/quarters with a rookie to take the pressure off of him? Who knows

      • Sergio Quintero

        To quote Mike Singletarry: “Can’t play with them, can’t trust him” that’s view on Gaither, so until they pick an LT in free agency, the first pick will be a LT, you have a low mobility and bad play extension QB, he needs protection until then your just wasting his talents. So until a Sam Baker, Bushrod, Starks signs on dotted line, pick 11 will be an LT.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          You can have all the opinions in the world, truth is we don’t know what they are thinking right now. My Opinion is they go pass rusher 1st and LT 2nd.

          Sergio hold on, we know what PR weakness are, just consider that in context. Under norv the pass plays were designed to go deep. PR needed time for those routes to develop. With McCoy and Wisenhunt I expect them to design more short and medium pass routes. As well as improving the running game. Those two things alone will decrease the amount of hits PR took, and shorten the time needed to deliver the ball.
          Wth that said, they might do a belichek and trade out of the first round for more draft picks in the second and another next year.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Best answer I can give comes from someone has a lot more inside info than me, from Kevin Acee: “Everything I’m hearing indicates Chargers will concentrate resources on the OL — at expense of other spots. Gotta do what they gotta do.”

          • arnie

            i hear yah. However this is the same Kevin Acee that was also convinced, from inside sources, the Chargers were going to get “Bennie Wells”. Don’t believe everything you read/hear, and only half of what you see.
            Now how does that contradict what i said? i didn’t say they were not going to get O-line men. i suggested they might trade down, for more draft picks. See, the way i’m looking it, Telesco’s has a history, from what he did in indy, that is the course he could take. Tom let a lot of FA go, and the experts thought they were crazy. they replaced them with inexpensive, young players, and ended up with 10 wins, and a playoff appearance.
            that’s a great turn around, in one offseason. if i have to go with insiders, i’m going with that cenerio. player you want not there, trade down, get more picks.
