Right before the start of the NFL Draft, we might as well take one more look at the Chargers depth chart. All kinds of players will be added onto the roster by the end of the week, but this will be a good overlook on the roster to see where the team needs some help.
Here is the depth chart as it stands right now:
QB Philip Rivers, Charlie Whitehurst
RB Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead, Ronnie Brown, Edwin Baker, Fozzy Whittaker
FB Le’Ron McClain, Chris Gronkowski
WR Danario Alexander, Vincent Brown, Malcom Floyd, Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal, Richard Goodman, Mike Willie, Deon Butler, Dan DePalma
TE Antonio Gates, John Phillips, Ladarius Green, Dallas Walker
OT Jeromey Clary, King Dunlap, Mike Harris, Kevin Haslam, Steve Schilling
OG Chad Rinehart, Johnnie Troutman, Rich Ohrnberger, Brandyn Dombrowski
C Nick Hardwick, Colin Baxter, David Molk
DE Corey Liuget, Kendall Reyes, Jarius Wynn, Damik Scafe, Logan Harrell
DT Cam Thomas
MLB Donald Butler, Bront Bird, Jonas Mouton, Andrew Gachkar, Phillip Dillard
OLB Melvin Ingram, Jarret Johnson, Larry English
CB Derek Cox, Shareece Wright, Marcus Gilchrist, Greg Gatson, Johnny Patrick, Cornelius Brown
FS Eric Weddle, Sean Cattouse
SS Brandon Taylor, Darrell Stuckey
Look at the depth at that nose tackle position…. NOTHING! Maybe that is why you all voting on the poll for Star Lotulelei.
Just looking at our guards, there is no reason on why we need to select one high in the draft. All of them can compete for starting jobs and have had to fill in as starters before.
Help at Middle backer, offensive tackles, and the defensive front are needed in a bad way. That is for all the fans that draft on the NEED basis. I definitely am a proponent of the best player available philosophy though.
