Chargers vs Seahawks: Players to Watch

First action of the season today. Time to see what the kids can bring to the field. Here are some of the players that we should keep an eye on during the game:

Manti Te’o

Time for the rookie to get on the field for the first time since that whole incident that will go without name. Look forward to seeing how the kid does in the middle of the defense and how quick he is able to read plays. He will have one tough runningback to bring down in Marshawn Lynch.

Johnny Patrick

Patrick has been getting a lot of praise in the secondary. Time for us to see what he has on the field now.

Tourek Williams

Williams will likely see a lot of playing time today. Hopefully we see some pressures coming from his direction. Want to see how myuch the kid has developed over training camp.

D.J. Fluker

The number 1 draft pick gets his first shot to pancake some people. We will see how that pass protection is today.

Jeromey Clary

That move to right guard has been talked about a lot. Time to see how he does against real opponents now.

Keenan Allen

This is his opportunity to steal reps in practice and work toward getting a starting job. Can’t wait to see him get the ball in his hands.
