The long drought of Chargers football is starting to begin. I hate this time of year, but there is still work that has to be done by the team. There are still areas of concern that the Chargers will have to addreess before training camp starts up. Here are a list of areas that seem to have some depth issues:
The obvious area of concern that we have been talking about since the beginning. Max Starks is the best player available at this time and he has already come to town for a visit. Don’t know what the Chargers plan to do at the position, but King Dunlap is holding down the starting job right now. I guess it is King’s job to lose.
I have concerns about Jeromey Clary playing at guard. Not everyone does, but I sure do. The position might be better for him, but none of us have seen it yet. He still hasn’t practiced the position with pads on and PLUS, his contract can free up some money to plug other areas of concern. If we do cut Clary, that means we trust a player like Johnnie Troutman. I am not as confident as others on Troutman to be given the starting job. He is a 5th round draft pick that has never played a snap in the NFL.
Talked about the depth at the position already yesterday. If one of the starters goes down, we will have to get a lot of good snaps from some rookies and undrafted free agents. That is a lot to ask for.
The starters look good, but who is behind them and who is anchoring the middle at nose tackle? If one of the top youngsters go down, we have a undrafted rookie to hold down the middle or Jarius Wynn starting.
